Yellowstone Season 5 on Paramount

Yellowstone Season 5: Here’s everything you need to know about the potential fifth season of Yellowstone including its release date, cast, plot and more.

  • Yellowstone Season 4 premiered on Paramount Network on Nov 7, 2021. The season four finale airs on Dec 2, 2022.
  • Paramount Network has not yet confirmed Yellowstone Season 5 but Cole Hauser strongly hinted that it’s happening.

On Jan 2, 2022, Yellowstone Season 4 Episode 10 will air on Paramount Network. It will be the last episode of this season. As the current season is approaching its end, fans are already anticipating season 5. Will there be Yellowstone Season 5? When will it premiere on Paramount? Who are the cast members returning for the fifth season? Fans have a plethora of questions about the potential fifth season. Here’s everything you need to know.

Is Yellowstone Season 5 happening?

First things first, Paramount Network hasn’t officially announced anything about Yellowstone‘s season 5 yet. However, considering the popularity and incredible rating, it would be a shocker if the network cancels the neo-western drama after the fourth season. With a new prequel ‘1883’ debuted in Dec 2021, the Yellowstone franchise is only going to expand in the days to come. A spin-off series ‘6666’ is also in the works.

In fact, the show’s leading star Cole Hauser, who plays Rip, confirmed that a fifth season is in the cards.

In a virtual happy hour with Hall Wines, he said that preparations for a fifth season are going on.

“Season five is going to be wonderful. The way we ended season four—I can’t give too much away, but the way season four ends, I think the audience… will be happily surprised.”

So, Yellowstone Season 5 announcement remains a formality. It is almost guaranteed to happen. It’s just a matter of time. We are expecting an official announcement soon after the fourth season finale.

Which cast members are returning for Season 5?

Again, there isn’t anything official. However, Cole’s happy hour chat was full of hints about which Yellowstone cast members would be back for the fifth season.

“For us as actors—and I think I can speak for everybody, even including Kevin, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Luke Grimes, Gil Birmingham—you know, everybody is a part of it,” he said. “We come together. This is now going into our fifth year, so we come together as a family.”

This almost clarifies that almost all the led cast members will be back for Yellowstone Season 5. We may also witness some new faces, however, nothing is official now.

Is there a release date for Yellowstone Season 5?

Season 4 of Yellowstone got delayed due to the pandemic. It premiered on Nov 7, 2021, and conclude on Jan 2, 2022. Prior to season four, Yellowstone’s new seasons used to premiere in June and conclude airing in August.

Though the makers would love to return to the previous release schedule, Season 4 has delivered incredible numbers in the new release window. Yellowstone Season 4 is garnering crazy numbers and this might become a reason for ParamountNetwork to release season five in Nov or Dec 2022.

Moreover, Paramount always took more than a year to deliver a new season after its announcement. So, June to Aug 2022 release window looks highly unlikely. So, I am expecting Yellowstone Season 5 to release by the end of 2022.

Get ready for a Yellowstone spin-off and a prequel series

You would be happy to know that the show’s creator Taylor Sheridan is expanding Yellowstone Universe with a prequel and a spin-off series. A prequel series, titled 1883 and starring Sam Elliott and Tim McGraw debuted on Dec 19,2021, on Paramount Plus.

A spinoff titled 6666 is also in the works. It does not have an official release date, but it will also stream on Paramount Plus.

Yellowstone Season 1, 2 and 3 are available to stream on Peacock Premium. Season 4 is available on Paramount Network.
