Though details about the Dutton family’s next chapter have been far and few between since the season 4 finale in January, Paramount Network has started to spill the beans on some important updates. At the top of the list is confirmation that production for Yellowstone season 5 has officially begun! That’s right — the Yellowstone cast kicked off filming on May 16, according to multiple outlets. Despite fear that new episodes would be delayed after actor Gil Birmingham revealed last month that he hadn’t received the scripts yet, series creator Taylor Sheridan reassured folks that everything is right on track.
Now, viewers can look forward to seeing the Kevin Costner-led Western drama return to Paramount Network later this year. According to Variety, Yellowstone season 5 is eyeing “a premiere date in late summer.” What does this mean? If we had to guess, the show may come back in late August or early September before the rest of fall TV begins. For now we’ll keep our fingers crossed for the soonest date possible, because Paradise Valley is calling our name!
As fans may know, Yellowstone has filmed its stunning scenes in more than 20 locations across Utah and Montana. According to Deseret News, Paramount Network rolled its cameras in the western states for the first three seasons. But production stayed exclusively put in Montana for season 4. The same will probably be true for season 5.
What’s more, season 5 of Yellowstone will have a total of 14 episodes, a major win for fans who have previously only watched 10 per season on average. But there’s a catch — the 14 episodes will be split into two parts comprised of seven episodes. As for where we'll pick up, it sounds like there won't be too much of a time jump from where season 4 ended. Per Variety, season 5 will begin with John running for Montana governor.
We have a feeling Jamie (Wes Bentley) will be looking on from the sidelines … but not happily.
