Yellowstone: Who is Melanie Olmstead? Tribute & Cause of Death


The new season of Yellowstone, which is set to air on November 7th on the Paramount Network, will answer our burning questions. Who was Melanie Olmstead and how did she die? At this point, it’s unclear what role her death played in shaping current events but one thing remains for certain: everything’s about to change. We’ll have all these answers as soon as we tune into a brand-new episode!

The fans of this show have been asking a lot of questions about Melanie Olmstead’s death and who she was.

The narrative, which is an original story created by the person or group responsible for its creation, takes place in Yellowstone National Park where John Dutton has to deal with his family while also dealing with issues related to nature conservation at home.

In season 2 “Paradise Lost,” there are references made to one woman named Melanie Olmstead that no one seems willing or able enough to give any information on though they all know what happened but refuse to get into details despite being goaded again and again especially from Kayce Dutton (who happens to see her boyfriend Jamie Munson killed due to people trying protect their land).

Who is Melanie Olmstead?

A brave and talented lady who worked tirelessly to help make Yellowstone a success has passed away. Olmstead died at the age of 50 due to complications from cancer, leaving behind her husband as well as three children.

In addition to working on numerous TV shows such as House M.D., The Shield, Mindhunter etc., she also spent time in Africa doing charity work with women’s education initiatives before starting out on film sets around 2000.

Her biggest claim is that of being location lead for “Yellowstone”, including transporting production crews and equipment all over Montana during filming seasons two through five which was incredibly strenuous but immensely gratifying given how much people love this show!

The crew member who died in May 2019 was a huge fan of Yellowstone as she had made clear her love for animals, especially horses, from a young age.
She shared on Facebook about how much she loved her horse Mahogany and described it to be “my beautiful amazing girl” which is over 100 years old!
