Audiences have been absolutely gripped by the latest season of Yellowstone, with the Season 4 finale breaking viewership records. It should come as no surprise then that the drama on the ranch is back for a fifth season.
Here’s what we know about Yellowstone season 5 so far.
Yellowstone Season 5: Plot
It didn’t take long for Yellowstone to become one of the most nail-biting dramas on television.
If you’re not up to date, the story follows the troubles of the Dutton family, who control the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. The family must deal with shifting alliances, unsolved murders and conflict on all sides of its borders with an expanding town, a Native American reservation and America’s first national park.
All the events of the fourth season left the Duttons in a pretty strong position, but the secrets within the family are primed to explode in season 5.
As the explosive new season 5 trailer shows, John has been elected to the government but still faces adversity on all sides. It’s giving me House of Cards meets Succession vibes – if they were set in the country.
Yellowstone season 5 is bringing back most of its cast.
Kevin Costner will naturally lead the series as John Dutton and is joined by regulars Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, Forrie Smith, Denim Richards, Ian Bohen, Finn Little, Ryan Bingham and Gil Birmingham.
Guest stars Jen Landon and Kathryn Kelly have been upped to series regular status for season 5, so expect to see more of Teeter and Emily next time around.
Aussies Jacki Weaver and Finn Little are also back for the fifth season.
When will Yellowstone Season 5 be released?
Kevin Costner himself confirmed the news that Yellowstone’s fifth season would debut on November 14, 2022. Here in Australia, we can watch it on Stan with a special two-hour premiere event.
Where can I catch up on the other seasons?
All four seasons of Yellowstone are currently streaming on Stan.
