It seems like fans have been clamoring for more Yellowstone since the season 4 finale aired, smashing past rating records and becoming the most-watched episode of the show’s history on the Paramount Network.
According to Deadline, production for season 5 of the popular show has begun in Montana, and the Duttons will be back in the saddle before you know it.
Season 5 scripts have not yet been delivered to actor Gil Birmingham, who confirmed in April that he hadn’t received the scripts, leaving fans fearful that they wouldn’t be seeing any new episodes for quite some time.
“We haven’t even seen the scripts yet,” Yellowstone star Andrew Garfield told E! News during a joint interview with Garfield’s co-star.
Garfield tacked on: “He’s about to do the following season, and I know it, but he can’t say anything. He will not tell anything about the upcoming season unless he dies.”
The Dutton family, led by John Dutton, owns Montana’s largest cattle ranch and is the subject of Yellowstone. Conflicts between the ranch, a Native American tribe, and the land developers are at the heart of the story.
Kevin Costner (Dances with Wolves), Wes Bentley (American Beauty), Luke Grimes (Fifty Shades of Grey), and Kelly Reilly are all in the cast of the family ranch tale (Sherlock Holmes).
According to the Wall Street Journal, Season 5 will be expanded from the customary 10 episodes to a whopping 14 episodes, the first of which will premiere this summer.
Not only that, but it gets better. Second, after 1883, we should expect to see a season of Yellowstone spin-off in 1932 far sooner than originally intended.
After the second half of season 5 of Yellowstone, a new spinoff will follow the Dutton family through Prohibition and the Great Depression.
We’re all eager to find out: What can we expect from Season 5? Everything you need to know about Yellowstone season 5 is right here, including the most up-to-date cast and story information.
Yellowstone Season 5 Release Date Speculation
Filming is now taking place in Montana, while no official release date has been set.
Season 5’s initial batch of seven episodes will premiere in the summer of 2022, followed by the second half of the season later that year.
There will be 14 episodes in all for Season 5, which will be shown in two parts.
Who Will Be in the Cast of Yellowstone Season 5?
The fifth season of Yellowstone may not be possible for all of the cast members who have recently appeared in the show’s final episodes.
As bad news for Sheriff Donnie Haskell (Hugh Dillon) and Garrett Randall (Will Patton), it’s excellent news for most of the other characters in this season’s story.
Kelly Reilly (Britannia) is expected to return as John Dutton’s daughter, Beth, a ruthless financier with substance addiction difficulties, while Kevin Costner is expected to reprise his role as the family patriarch, the long-suffering defender of the ranch.
Kayce Grimes, John’s youngest son, is also expected to return.
There will be a full ensemble of characters in this season’s show: Cole Hauser as Rip Wheeler, Kelsey Asbille as Monica Long Dutton, Jefferson White as Jimmy Hurdstrom, Gil Birmingham as Chief Thomas Rainwater, Forrie J Smith as Lloyd Pierce, Denim Richards as Colby Mayfield and Finn Little as Carter.
Caroline Warner (Jacki Weaver) and Summer Higgins (Piper Perabo) may or may not return, so keep an eye on the show for additional details.
Yellowstone Season 5 Plot
Season 4 of Yellowstone finished on a more cheerful note than season 3’s cliffhanger-filled finale.
Some fans anticipate the fifth season will answer several issues like Kayce’s apocalyptic vision, Jimmy and Emily’s departure for the 6666 spin-offs, and Beth Dutton’s future.
However, the plot of the fifth season hasn’t been announced yet, so fans will have to wait for more information.
Prequels and Spinoffs
Taylor Sheridan shows about ranchers are no longer exclusive to Yellowstone, and it’s unlikely that they ever will be. 1883, a Paramount+ prequel miniseries, told the account of the Dutton family’s arrival in Montana. A foul arrow killed Elsa (Isabel May), the brave and daring teenage sister of John Sr. Dutton when they were on their way to Oregon.
To honor her father James (Tim McGraw), the Dutton family moved to a lovely region in Montana. The first black U.S. Marshal west of the Mississippi, Bass Reeves, will star in an 1883 spinoff, 1883: Bass Reeves. In the course of his career, the former slave arrested over 3,000 offenders without being harmed.

In December, a drama about the next generation of Duttons caring for their ranch during the Great Depression and the end of Prohibition will follow 1883. Ford and Mirren will feature in the show, which is rumored to be based on the theory that Ford is playing John Sr., or perhaps another unknown Dutton closer to his genuine age of about the age of 79. We’ll have to wait till John Sr. was in his late 50s or early 60s in 1932 to find out what happened to him.
To further explore the ranch’s unique history, Sheridan is penning the Yellowstone spinoff 6666, which will take place on the ranch’s actual, historic Four Sixes Ranch in Texas (which Sheridan now owns). As with the original, it will air on Paramount Network.
Yellowstone’s first four seasons may be seen on Peacock and will be rebroadcast on Paramount Network shortly.
