Yellowstone Season 4 has wrapped up and the countdown to Season 5 begins. Here’s when to expect the return of cable’s #1 show.
Firstly, don’t fret: Yellowstone will absolutely be returning for a Season 5. The wild success of Season 4 guarantees it – as does Taylor Sheridan’s extensive deal with ViacomCBS. Yet as of Season 4’s finale, Yellowstone hasn’t been officially renewed for a Season 5. Prequel series 1883′s runaway success on Paramount+ and the already-announced spinoff 6666, however, further anchor Yellowstone Season 5 as a must.
And while it may not be as solid as a studio confirmation, the man behind Rip Wheeler, Cole Hauser, has confirmed that Taylor Sheridan was, in fact, already hard at work on Season 5 in mid-2021. he also had a projected start date for fans.

Speaking to Hall Family Wines Happy Hour via an extensive YouTube interview, Hauser spoke directly to the team’s return for Season 5.
“Taylor’s working on it right now, and I think we will be back sometime in July ,” the fan-favorite actor revealed. By “back,” Hauser implies that the cast and crew will return to Montana for filming this summer.
“Season 5 is going to be wonderful. I mean, the way we ended season four, I can’t give too much away, but the way season four ends, I think the audience, and I know you like the show, I think you’ll be happily surprised with a lot of things,” Hauser continued. We’re inclined to agree.
Season 5 Projected to Premiere November 2022
With the above in mind, it’s likely that Yellowstone Season 5 will premiere in late Nov. 2022. Season 4 moved the series from it’s original summer release to a primetime fall release, and Season 5 is likely to do the same. We’ll update this article with any official studio announcement from Paramount Network to confirm.
But who will be returning for the next season?
