‘Yellowstone’ Season 5, Part 2: Release Date, Episode Count and Everything to Know

The popular modern Western television series, Yellowstone, which airs on the Paramount Network, is set to conclude after its upcoming fifth season. The show has been on hiatus since its midseason finale on January 1, mainly due to the ongoing strike involving the writers and actors, as well as conflicts between its star, Kevin Costner, and the producers. However, fans of the show need not worry, as a new spinoff titled 2024 is in the works and may star Matthew McConaughey. Since the announcement that Yellowstone would not be returning in the summer of 2023 as initially promised, fans have eagerly awaited news of its return and the extent of Costner's involvement in the upcoming season.

Now, some information has emerged, starting with a timeline for when production on Yellowstone Season 5 will resume. Below, you will find all the current information regarding the return of Yellowstone Season 5, including the latest developments surrounding the conflicts involving Kevin Costner and the show. Fans can expect the second half of Yellowstone Season 5 to premiere in November 2024, according to Deadline's initial report. Originally, the second half was meant to air in the summer of 2023, but due to various circumstances, this did not happen. Paramount Network rescheduled the production to begin in July, with a November premiere and the new spinoff set to follow in December.

However, both plans were derailed by the strikes involving the writers and actors. In September, it was reported that creator Taylor Sheridan was close to finishing the scripts for the remaining episodes of Season 5 before the writers' strike commenced. These scripts were prepared under the assumption that Kevin Costner would not return. Some pre-production work has already begun, and now that the actors' strike has concluded, the show is preparing to resume production. Variety has reported that filming will commence in late spring of 2024.
