The fifth season of Yellowstone has already begun filming with the cast and crew. Although November may seem like a long way off, wonderful things do come to those who wait. The series will return to our televisions then. In the interim, TV Guide is compiling every nugget of information that surfaces regarding the upcoming season and all of those Yellowstone universe spin-offs.
In contrast to Season 3’s brutal, dramatic cliffhanger, Season 4’s finale was much more subdued. We all know that Beth (Kelly Reilly) is the mastermind behind every decision made on the Yellowstone ranch, and she used her adoptive brother Jamie (Wes Bentley) to murder his original father, Garrett (Will Patton).
Garrett was revealed to have ordered the attempted assassinations of John (Kevin Costner), Beth, and Kayce (Luke Grimes) in Season 3, hence in Beth’s opinion, he fully merited it. Jamie, a contender for governor, is now directly under Beth’s control because she made sure to have proof of the deed. The rest of the world is essentially only existing in Beth’s universe for the time being because she recently got impromptu married to Rip (Cole Hauser) and witnessed her father’s new, perplexing vegan friend (Piper Perabo) being sent to jail.
Kayce has recently returned from an intense spiritual journey that gave him a vision of two paths, which complicates Beth’s drive for global/Montana dominance. He later revealed to Monica (Kelsey Asbille) that at least one of those options would be “the end of us.” Whatever that means, it can’t be good, and the lengthy wait for Season 5 is made all the more difficult.
Here is all the information you need to know about what to anticipate in the interim.
Yellowstone will return to Paramount Network on Sunday, Nov. 13.
The 14 episodes in Season 5 will be split into two groups of seven episodes each. It’s the most popular season thus far, but it’s not yet known how long the intermission will last.
Prequels and Spin-Offs
In the world of Taylor Sheridan shows about ranchers, Yellowstone is no longer unique and probably never will be. Prequel miniseries 1883, which told the tale of the Dutton family’s arrival in Montana, has previously shown on Paramount+. Prior to Elsa (Isabel May), the older sister of John Dutton’s grandfather, John Sr., being shot with a soiled arrow, they were on their way to Oregon. The Dutton family settled there when her father James (Tim McGraw) found her a lovely valley in Montana to die in.
Following 1883 in December will come 1923, a drama about the Duttons’ next generation caring for their ranch in the years following World War One and just before prohibition. Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren will star in that programme, and while the identities of their characters have not been revealed, it is hypothesised that Ford would portray an older James Dutton and Mirren will play an older Margaret.
Sheridan is also penning the Yellowstone spin-off 6666, which is set at the actual historic Four Sixes ranch in Texas (which Sheridan currently owns) and details how the ranch still conducts business as usual today. Along with the original programme, that spin-off will be broadcast on Paramount Network.
Streaming of Yellowstone seasons 1-4 is available on Peacock. The Paramount Network will carry the fifth season.
