To quote the great Paula Cole: “Where have all the cowboys gone?” It’s officially been over a year since the last new episode of Yellowstone aired on Paramount Network. Decider’s Nicole Galluchi recently wrote a timeline of the show’s seemingly endless 2023 drama, but to quote yet another Paula Cole ditty: “I don’t wanna wait for my life to be over… until another new episode drops.” Or something like that.

If you’re missing Yellowstone, Decider recommends Deadwood (Max), Justified (Hulu), Sneaky Pete (Prime Video), or the medley of Taylor Sheridan shows on Paramount+ (1883, 1923, Mayor of Kingstown, Special Ops: Lioness, Lawmen: Bass Reeves, Tulsa King).

When exactly does Yellowstone return with new episodes? Here’s everything you need to know.

Is Yellowstone on Paramount Network Tonight (1/7/24)?

Nope. Paramount Network is airing a marathon of Bar Rescue.

CBS was previously broadcasting Yellowstone reruns on Sundays, but that’s not the case tonight. But we do have some good news: The network will begin airing Season 3 episodes next week (Sunday, January 14). The third season will run through January, culminating with a two-night season finale event on Sunday, January 28 and Monday, January 29.

When Does Yellowstone Return With New Season 5 Episodes?

Back in November, Paramount Network announced that Yellowstone will return for the second half of Season 5 in November 2024. The network also revealed that two new Yellowstone spinoffs — currently titled 1944 and 2024 — are in the works.

No plot details for 1944 or 2024 were announced, but Variety reports that 2024 is expected to begin airing following the conclusion of Yellowstone, with the show featuring “new cast members and locations with some crossover characters as well.” This is the series that would most likely include Matthew McConaughey, who’s been rumored to star in a Yellowstone spinoff since April.

The second half of Season 5 was originally supposed to consist of six episodes, but during a June 2023 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sheridan said that he might write more than the previously reported six installments. “If I think it takes ten episodes to wrap it up, they’ll give me ten,” he said. “It’ll be as long as it needs to be.”

Where To Watch Yellowstone Season 5:

All five seasons of Yellowstone are available on Peacock Premium. You can also stream select Season 5 episodes on-demand via the Paramount Network website, fuboTVSling TV (the $6/month “Comedy Extra” add-on), Hulu + Live TVYouTube TVPhilo, or DIRECTV STREAM.

Finally, individual episodes and complete seasons of Yellowstone are available to purchase on Amazon.

Is Kevin Costner Leaving Yellowstone?

Production on the final episodes of the fifth and final season will reportedly begin in late spring 2024, but Costner’s level of involvement in the remaining installments is still unclear. The actor revealed in a September court trial that he was initially offered $24 million to do Seasons 5, 6, and 7 of Yellowstone but there were “issues with creative.”

Per Deadline, another source of contention centered around the star’s shooting schedule. Costner reportedly wanted more time to spend on his upcoming multi-part Western movie Horizon: An American Saga, a film in which he starred, directed, co-wrote, and produced.

The situation remains in flux — Costner said in September that he’ll “probably go to court” over his Yellowstone exit — so it’s safe to say that he almost certainly won’t be involved in future spinoffs.
