Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone, one of the most-watched cable drama, is back with a season 5. In contrast to previous seasons, this one will air 14 total episodes over two chunks of seven episodes. And it’s safe to anticipate that the Dutton family will experience just as much turbulence this season as they have in seasons past. Yellowstone season 5 expands the Duttons’ dominance and establishes an intriguing premise with the series patriarch John Dutton (Kevin Costner) becoming the governor of Montana.
The first part of season 5 premiered Sunday, Nov. 13 on the Paramount Network, and Yellowstone is set to air weekly until December 18.
Yellowstone — chronicles the Dutton family, headed by John Dutton, who holds the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. The ranch is in continual battle with those it borders, including a burgeoning town, an Indian reserve, and America’s first national park, amid shifting alliances, unsolved killings, open wounds, and hard-earned respect.
The Dutton family strives to defend their ranch and way of life from an Indian reservation and land developers, according to the official season 5 synopsis from Paramount. The Duttons’ are strained by medical concerns and family secrets, and their future is threatened by outside relationships and political aspirations.
