Buckle up, Yellowstone fans. Yellowstone is rolling out a new aftershow special on Paramount+ featuring star and exec producer Kevin Costner, co-creator Taylor Sheridan and others.

Only on Paramount+, fans can catch the people behind Yellowstone in “ET Presents: Yellowstone Aftershow,” a two-part special with appearances by the show’s cast, including Costner and Sheridan. Entertainment Tonight’s Cassie DiLaura will host, Deadline reports.

When will this air, you ask? Paramount+ will stream the first part on Sunday, Dec. 19 at 9 p.m. ET, right after the evening’s new episode. The second part will stream Sunday, Dec. 26, just to make your holiday season a little more merry.

Special Cements the Synergy Between Viacom and CBS

This special is a collaboration between the Viacom side of ViacomCBS and the CBS side. The former produces Yellowstone through its subsidiary MTV Entertainment Group. The latter owns Entertainment Tonight.

But enough about synergy: you want to know about the special. It will include interviews with cast members such as Costner, Kelly Reilly, Cole Hauser, Luke Grimes and Jefferson White. And it offers some glimpses into the last two episodes of Season 4.

Further behind-the-scenes content includes interviews with Sheridan and executive producer and 101 Studios CEO David Glasser.

The streaming world can be confusing, so here’s what you should know: Paramount+ does not carry Yellowstone itself. As far as streaming goes, you’d turn to Peacock for Seasons 1-3 of Yellowstone (it won’t have Season 4 until next year). But now Paramount+ subscribers can get some Yellowstone content with this two-part special.

Don’t Miss the Season 4 Finale of Yellowstone

Meanwhile, the Season 4 finale of Yellowstone is set to air Jan. 2. That’s available on the Paramount Network.

The hit Paramount series has shattered ratings records to become the top drama on cable. Its Season 4 premiere brought in more than 14 million viewers in America, making it the most-watched cable season premiere since 2017.

The popular franchise has expanded its reach with two new spinoffs: 6666, starring Jimmy actor Jefferson White and Walker actor Ryan Bingham, which is set on a renowned ranch in Texas; and 1883, which chronicles the origin story of the Dutton clan as they make their way across the Great Plains toward a better life in Montana.

The latter will premiere Sunday on Paramount+. The streaming provider will also offer Mayor of Kingstown, another original Sheridan creation about a town that revolves around the prison industry. The two shows will stream after new episodes of Yellowstone air on their respective premiere dates.
