Yellowstone Cast Guide: Every New & Returning Season 5 Character

Orli Gottesman as Hailie

Hailie is the new love interest of Carter, the teenage ranch hand who was adopted by Rip and Beth. As the catalyst to a new romance, Hailie presents trouble - but she could also be exactly what Carter needs. Teenage actor Orli Gottesman plays Hailie in the Yellowstone cast and also appears as Britt in 1-800-Hot-Nite and Bethany in Adeline.

Yellowstone Season 5 Returning Cast & Characters

The Yellowstone cast for season 5 has remained intact from previous seasons, with many of the stars returning. Apart from being the family's patriarch, John Dutton (Kevin Costner) is the new governor, with Beth (Kelly Reilly) as John's new chief-of-staff, and former governor Lynelle Perry (Wendy Moniz) as his advisor. Meanwhile, Jamie (Wes Bentley) now seeks to impeach his father from elected office with help from Sarah Atwood's (Dawn Olivieri). Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser), Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes), Monica Long Dutton (Kelsey Asbille), and Tate Dutton (Brecken Merril) are also back for season 5.

Moreover, the Confederated Tribes of Broken Rock continue to be represented by Chief Thomas Rainwater (Gil Birmingham), Mo (Moses Brings Plenty), and Angela Blue Thunder (Q'orianka Kilcher), who has returned to the series after being entirely absent in Yellowstone season 4. Angela's return has prompted speculation of a Beth and Angela team-up in Yellowstone season 5, and could imply that Broken Rock will be employing dishonorable tactics like their enemies in the valley. Though Yellowstone season 5 introduces several new characters, its overarching conflict will be played out among the above-mentioned returning cast.

In the flashback scenes to the earlier days of the ranch, the younger versions of Beth and Rip are played respectively by Kylie Rogers and Kyle Red Silverstein, who are back in their roles of revealing the now-married couple's troubled past. Meanwhile, Yellowstone season 5's young John Dutton is played by Josh Lucas, who once again shows how much dangerous John was as a younger man. As always, the cast of main characters holds the final fate of the YellowstoneDutton Ranch in their scheming hands. With the stakes at an all-time high, the Yellowstone cast for season 5 cast will be flung into the show's most turbulent situation yet.
