Yellowstone season 5 release date: we look into when Kevin Costner will saddle up and return as John Dutton to his beloved cattle ranch

When is the Yellowstone season 5 release date? Kevin Costner’s TV series about the trials and tribulations of the Dutton family ranch is one of Paramount’s current streaming service hits. So much so, we’re getting a bumped fifth season, with 14 episodes spread across two parts.

Though the drama series seems like a simple look into the life of managing a ranch, it’s considerably deeper than that. John Dutton (Costner) has to dodge all sorts of attempts to squeeze him and his family off their property, or contest the borders of what is America’s largest remaining ranch. Between outside politics and that of his children, Beth (Kelly Reilly), Kayce (Luke Grimes), and Jamie (Wes Bentley), things often get more complicated than John bargained.

Now, he’s running for governor, and relations between the new generation of Duttons are at an all-time low. Though, for Kayce, he’s just carving his own path by taking an initiation for his wife Mo’s Native American tribe. Between that, Beth’s torturous manipulation of Jamie, and John’s political career, Yellowstone season 5 release date is promising a truly tight-knit narrative. Get your good boots on, it’s time to giddy up.

Yellowstone season 5 release date

Yellowstone season 5 returns on November 13, 2022. The renewal order for another batch of episodes came through in February 2022, along with the announcement that it’ll arrive in two parts, giving fans a hearty new chapter in the Yellowstone timeline.

Deadline reported that Taylor Sheridan, co-creator of Yellowstone with John Linson, plans to begin shooting in May 2022. Forrie J Smith, who plays Lloyd, later confirmed filming would begin in mid-May on Instagram.

“Hey, Cody Ring and all you Yellowstone addicts,” Smith said in a short video. “Thank you, thank you for the care package. It’s too sweet. I appreciate the thought and my grandbaby loved that rabbit y’all sent her… We’re all going back for season five, in mid-May, so keep your Yellowstone vibes rolling. Thank you.”

Yellowstone season 5 plot speculation

We can’t say exactly what will happen in Yellowstone season 5, but here are several key threads to keep in mind. First and foremost, John’s campaign as governor and all the attention that’s bringing. It’s been teased that he may end up behind bars in the coming season with one of the political enemies finding some real dirt that sticks on the Dutton patriarch.

After nearly sabotaging John’s voting promise, Beth made it up to him by getting Jamie’s hands very dirty. For now, Jamie is stuck, but for how long? Lastly, Kayce is now stuck in the wilderness of Montana. Mo and Rainwater claimed they’d be back in four days, but that’s a mighty long time when you’re at the mercy of the elements.

Yellowstone season 5 should address all of this and bring some new twists of its own. The Dutton ranch might have its most thunderous days ahead!
