Release date, trailers, how to stream
(Pocket Ribbon) – Yellowstone, the ranch drama starring Kevin Costner, has been renewed for a fifth season for ViacomCBS-Paramount Network. The series had record-breaking ratings for its finale, which aired last January and drew a total of more than 10 million viewers. With that kind of success, it was a given that the Dutton family would return for another season.
What is the premise of Yellowstone?
Yellowstone focuses on Wyoming rancher John Dutton, a sixth-generation homesteader and father of four. His property is the largest ranch in the US – with a growing city, an Indian reservation and America’s first national park on its borders. The Dutton family is constantly trying to protect the ranch from corrupt politicians and corporations and land grab developers.
Who will star in Season 5 of Yellowstone?
Yellowstone was created by Taylor Sheridan with John Linson.
Both co-produce with Art Linson, Kevin Costner, David C. Glasser, Bob Yari and Stephen Kay.
Costner also leads the cast. Guest stars for the fifth season include Jen Landon and Kathryn Kelly, who were both upgraded to regulars. Returning stars include 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.

When will Yellowstone season five premiere?
While ViacomCBS greenlit season five in February 2022, no release date has been announced yet. Production on season five is expected to begin in May 2022.
Where can you watch season five of Yellowstone?
These are your different streaming options…
The upcoming fifth season of Yellowstone will be available on Paramount Network in the US. The drama is not available on Paramount+.
It is not yet known when the Yellowstone series will air in the UK.
But Paramount+ is expected to hit the country in 2022 via Sky platforms, so maybe it’ll be available to stream then.
Why is Yellowstone on Peacock and not Paramount+?
Yellowstone was given the green light by Kevin Kay, a former Spike TV executive who worked on Paramount Network, owned by ViacomCBS. It is produced in-house by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios.
But in the US, the first three seasons of Yellowstone are only available to stream on NBCUniversal’s streaming service, Peacock. The fourth season is available on Paramount Network, but it is under a cable paywall. That’s because ViacomCBS doesn’t own the streaming rights to Yellowstone, even though it owns the streaming service Paramount+. So it probably wants that old content license agreement back from NBCUniversal. The deal — signed before Viacom and CBS merged and before CBS became All Access Paramount+ — will allow Yellowstone to stream exclusively on Peacock.
Directors of ViacomCBS are reportedly trying to buy back those rights. They also piggyback on Yellowstone’s success to attract fans to Paramount+. Sheridan’s Yellowstone prequel, 1883, debuted on the streaming service in late 2022.

What’s next in the Dutton universe?
The Dutton universe is expanding with not one but two spin-off series. Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan revealed last year that there would be two shows. One is 1883 (see Pocket-lint’s guide to watching that prequel series here). The other series is Yellowstone 6666, which will be released on Paramount+ on March 4, 2022. Here’s the full synopsis of 6666:
Founded when the Comanches still ruled West Texas, no ranch in America is more steeped in the history of the West than the 6666. The 6666 still functions as it did two centuries earlier, encompassing an entire county. nature come together in a place where the most dangerous thing you do is next… The 6666 is synonymous with the relentless pursuit of breeding the best horses and livestock in the world, and ultimately where world-class cowboys are born and made. will be executive produced by Sheridan, John Linson, Art Linson, David Glasser, Ron Burkle and Bob Yari.”
