Can we get a Yee-haw for Netflix? Get ready to saddle up because country music icon and actor Tim McGraw is set to star in an exhilarating new Netflix drama series delving into the intense and dangerous world of professional bull riding, according to Netflix's recent social media update.

The series -- currently untitled -- promises to offer a gripping look at the lives and careers of elite bull riders competing on the professional circuit. McGraw, known for his standout roles in Friday Night Lights and 1883, will take on a lead role, though specific character details are still under wraps.

Produced by Yellowstone co-creator Taylor Sheridan through his Bosque Ranch Productions, this new venture adds to Sheridan's impressive portfolio of high-stakes dramas. Sheridan's major overall deal with Netflix has fans eagerly anticipating his latest project. The social media post teased:

"The series follows a megastar champion (McGraw) facing a life-or-death crossroads when confronted by the arrival of a fearless young rider, whose very existence challenges his ways and unearths secrets that force him to reckon with his past."


What will the Tim McGraw-Netflix bull riding series be about?

While plot specifics are still being kept a closely guarded secret, the series is expected to explore the high-stakes, adrenaline-fueled sport of bull riding and the personal lives of its competitors. Known as one of the most dangerous sports, bull riding often leads to serious injuries, adding an element of real danger to the storyline.

This project marks a continuation of McGraw's collaboration with Sheridan, following his acclaimed performance as James Dutton in the hit Yellowstone prequel series 1883 on Paramount+. Fans praised McGraw for bringing depth and authenticity to the gritty Western drama.
