- The season 2 finale of Yellowstone airs on Wednesday, August 28 at 10 p.m on Paramount Network.
- The ranching drama, which stars Kevin Costner, Kelly Reilly, and Wes Bentley, is this summer's most-watched cable series.
- At the start of the second season, Paramount Network confirmed that the show is coming back for season 3.
Now that Paramount Network's Yellowstone season 2 is coming to an end, fans already have one thing on their mind: Will the series come back for a third season? Luckily, the network isn't making Yellowstone fans wait for the good news, and they already confirmed that the hit show is returning for a third season in 2020. That means we'll get more quality time on the Dutton family ranch next year. Still, there are many details up in the air, but here's everything we know about the upcoming season of Yellowstone:
When is Yellowstone coming back for season 3?
Early on in season 2, Paramount Network officially announced that Yellowstone is returning for a 10-episode third season. Since both seasons have started in mid-June, it's likely that season 3 will return in June 2020, but the exact date is TBD.
So, Yellowstone isn't a limited series?
Exactly. When the show first aired, some originally thought that Yellowstone was following the same format as Waco, Paramount's other hit show. Luckily, Yellowstone is indeed a drama series, which means it'll probably be around for years to come (or so we hope).
What will Yellowstone season 3 be about?
Well, let's start with what fans already know: The second season shows John Dutton and his family as they "continue to fight for their survival, and unlikely partnerships, new enemies and disloyalty threatens to pull the family apart." Given the way that season 2 ended — Tate's kidnapping — our guess is that the third season will follow the family as they try to wrap their heads around what just happened and help Tate recover from such a traumatic experience. More than anything, Yellowstone fans are hoping to get answers about why Beth and John hate Jamie so much, so hopefully season 3 answers some tough Qs. Otherwise, it'll be filled with the same Dutton-level drama that Yellowstone fans know and love.
Will the entire cast — Kevin Costner, especially — return?
All signs point yes. Costner has signed on for season 3, but actually plans to spend more time behind the scenes. "What I’m going to do is direct a lot more of them in the second half of my career here," he told Deadline. Based on the success of the show, it seems like Wes Bentley, Kelly Reilly, Luke Grimes, Cole Hauser, and Kelsey Asbille will return, too. Fan favorites Forrie R. Smith and Denim Richards have been upped to season 3 regulars. As for Danny Huston, Neal McDonough, and Terry Serpico? We'll have to see how the season 2 finale pans out.
There are also several actors joining the season 3 cast:
- Colony actor Josh Holloway is joining the cast as "Roarke Carter, a handsome, charming, shaggy-haired hedge fund manager with ambitious plans in Montana," according to Deadline.
- John Emmet Tracey, known for his current role on iZombie will play "Ellis Steele, a chief litigator whose firm represents Fortune 500 companies in land-acquisition deals."
- Former The Alienist star Q’orianka Kilcher joins the cast as Angela Blue Thunder, a Native American and political opponent of Thomas Rainwater.
- Exciting news: The ranch is adding a female wrangler named Teeter, who is played by Animal Kingdom's Jennifer Landon.
How can I stream season 1 and 2 of Yellowstone?
You're in luck: Even if you don't have cable, you can binge the first two season on the Paramount Network's website with a free 24-hour trial. Once the trial ends, unfortunately, you need a cable log-in to watch. To avoid commercials altogether, stream it on Amazon. As of right now, the show isn't available on Netflix or Hulu, but there's always a possibility that could change before season 3 airs.
