Given its growing ratings and cultural relevance, a renewal of the Paramount streaming series Yellowstone for a fifth season seemed more like a “when” than an “if.” Just a couple of weeks ago, executive producer David Glasser confirmed that the studio was already hard at work on the fifth season with hopes to start filming this summer and now, Paramount has made it official: the Duttons are coming back for another go around.
The fourth season of the series, which concluded its run just over a month ago, saw a significant increase in viewers and social media buzz. While the fourth season ended on less of a bang than its predecessor, it did move along long-gestating feud between Beth and estranged adopted son Jamie. In the official announcement from parent company ViacomCBS Media Network, Glasser had the following to say:
We are honored to be able to bring audiences another season of Yellowstone. The continued growth in viewership and the recent recognition from the guilds bolsters our commitment to continue to bring groundbreaking entertainment to audiences.
Production on Season 5 is tentatively scheduled to begin this May with a late-2022 premiere date in mind.
