Yes, it’s happening and we aren’t surprised at all. In 2021, Yellowstone was one of the most-watched cable shows, with more than 10.3 million viewers tuning in for the season four finale.
Paramount Network has officially renewed Yellowstone for season 5. Another big news for fans is that Yellowstone Universe is expanding with several spin-offs and prequel series.
After a prequel ‘1883’ that debuted in Dec 2021, a spin-off series ‘6666’ is also in the works. The network has also announced a new prequel series ‘1932’ that will introduce another Dutton generation. This time during the Great Depression and Prohibition.
Which cast members are returning for Season 5?
The show follows the Dutton family, who own the largest ranch in Montana. Kevin Costner plays family patriarch John Dutton, while Kelly Reilly stars as his daughter, Bethany, and Wes Bentley appears as his son Jamie. The cast also includes Luke Grimes, Gil Birmingham, Danny Huston, Cole Hauser, and Kelsey Asbille.
In a virtual happy hour with Hall Wines, the show’s leading star Cole Hauser said that preparations for a fifth season are in full swing. He also said:
“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 pivotal cast members will be back for Yellowstone Season 5. We may also witness some new faces, however, nothing is official now.
However, three recurring actors were promoted to series regulars: Jefferson White, who plays Jimmy Hurdstrom, Kathryn Kelly, who stars as Jimmy’s fiancée, Emily, and Jen Landon, who plays Teeter.
Is there a release date for Yellowstone Season 5?
Unlike the last four seasons, Season 5 will be the longest with 14 episodes. The filming for the fifth season started in May. Yellowstone season 5 will premiere on November 13, 2022.
Earlier it was reported that the fifth season will be split into two parts of seven episodes each. However, it doesn’t seem to be the case now.
Yellowstone Season 5 Plot
When season 4 ended, the ranch had survived an attack planned by Jamie’s biological father, Garrett Randall (Will Patton). Beth married Rip Wheeler (Hauser). Jamie, meanwhile, killed Garrett, which Beth plans to use as blackmail in the future.

“Beth has decided she cannot rest until she gets justice,” the actress said in a promotional video for the show. “She wants blood. It’s really kind of intense.”
