When will Yellowstone season 5 return?

Yellowstone season 5 is on its mid season break, but with the news of its cancellation the date for its return has become less clear. This is what we know.

When will Yellowstone season 5 return?

When will Yellowstone season 5 return? It’s all change in Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone universe right now, as recent news has confirmed that Yellowstone season 5 will be the final outing of the show.

That’s right: Yellowstone is officially cancelled. There will be no Yellowstone season 6, and the Western series will instead be replaced by a Matthew McConaughey-led sequel series.

It’s the end of an era for one of the best TV series of recent years, and the status of the Yellowstone timeline and Yellowstone cast is still up in the air. Still, John Dutton’s story needs to come to an end, so when will Yellowstone season 5 return with its final episodes?

When will Yellowstone season 5 return?

Yellowstone season 5’s return date is currently unconfirmed, though the second half of the season is set to begin production in August. At least, that’s the current plan; however recent updates make this seem very optimistic.

Firstly, there’s the uncertainty around Kevin Costner’s return and how this (and its abrupt end) will impact current scripts. Then, there’s the ongoing 2023 Writer’s Strike. Both of these factors could mean that the date for the return of Yellowstone season 5, with its final ever batch of episodes, is in serious doubt.

While the end of John Dutton’s story is imminent, don’t panic too much if you’re a Yellowstone fan. Yellowstone season 5 will get a sequel with a Matthew McConaughey Yellowstone spin-off.
