The building also houses offices, editing, a huge wardrobe department and construction shops.

Production was reportedly set to last until December 2017.

The series’ score was composed by Brian Tyler who worked with musicians from the London Philharmonia Orchestra and viola, cello, and violin soloists. On August 17, 2018, the soundtrack for the first season was released by Sony Music.

Critical response
The series has been met with a mixed response from critics upon its premiere. On the review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, the first season holds a 51% approval rating, with an average rating of 5.86 out of 10 based on 35 reviews. The website’s critical consensus reads, “Yellowstone proves too melodramatic to be taken seriously, diminishing the effects of the talented cast and beautiful backdrops.” Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the season a score of 53 out of 100 based on 26 critics, indicating “mixed or average reviews.”

Ratings
The two-hour series premiere of Yellowstone averaged 2.8 million viewers in live + same day and became the most-watched original scripted series telecast ever on Paramount Network (or its predecessor Spike). The premiere audience grows to nearly 4 million when the two encore airings of the premiere are factored in. The premiere audience more than doubled that of Paramount Network’s first scripted drama series, Waco and more than tripled the debut viewership of Paramount Network’s new comedy series, American Woman. It was later reported that the premiere’s Live+3 Nielsen ratings revealed that 4.8 million viewers ultimately watched the premiere after delayed viewing was factored in. By the series’ third episode, it was reported that the show had become the second most watched television series on ad-supported cable to air in 2018, only behind AMC’s The Walking Dead.
