How to Watch Yellowstone: Season 5 – Release Date, Episode Schedule, and Cast

Yellowstone, cable’s most-watched drama, returns for an expanded fifth season this weekend. Since its debut in 2018, Paramount Network’s contemporary Western has expanded into a full-fledged franchise with multiple spinoff series, including a Helen Mirren- and Harrison Ford-led prequel debuting in December.

Yellowstone: Season 5 premieres on November 13. If you’re wondering what it’s about or how you can watch it yourself, take a look at the information below.

How to Watch Yellowstone: Season 5

Yellowstone: Season 5 will air exclusively on Paramount Network (the cable channel; not to be confused with Paramount+, the streaming service). Those without cable or a live TV streaming service should be able to purchase individual episodes on Amazon or Apple TV after they air.

Where to Stream Online

Season 5 will eventually be available to stream on Peacock, though a release date has not been announced. (Peacock’s parent company, NBCUniversal, bought the streaming rights to Yellowstone in 2020, a year before Paramount’s own streaming service was released.)

How Many Episodes of Yellowstone: Season 5 Are There?

Yellowstone: Season 5 will include 14 episodes split into two seven-episode parts — a notable increase over the 10-episode counts of past seasons. The first part of Season 5 should run from mid-November to mid-December; the second part will presumably air in 2023.

What’s Yellowstone About?

Yellowstone is a Neo-Western set in Montana. Here’s the official synopsis from Paramount:

Yellowstone chronicles the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect – the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America’s first national park.
