Can you believe it’s almost been an entire year since the last new episode of Yellowstone aired on Paramount Network? A whole year! The Season 5 installment “A Knife and No Coin” debuted January 1, 2023, on Paramount Network, with the season originally set to resume in the summer. But thanks to various strikes and behind-the-scenes tumult, Yellowstone remained on indefinite hiatus.

We now know that the fifth season will be the final installment of this particular iteration of the popular franchise, but, thankfully, Yellowstone is set to return in 2024. When will the unpredictable Dutton family be back on the small screen? Here’s everything you need to know.

Is Yellowstone on Tonight (12/31/23)?

Yes… but all the episodes are reruns. Paramount Network is airing a Yellowstone marathon this weekend. Today’s episodes start at 7:00 a.m. ET with the Season 3 installment “All for Nothing.” The final episode of the night, Season 4, Episode 10: “Grass on the Streets and Weeds on the Rooftops,” begins at 10:23 p.m. ET.

CBS had previously been broadcasting Yellowstone reruns on Sundays, but that won’t be the case tonight. The Season 2 finale was broadcast a month ago, and the network will begin airing Season 3 episodes on 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?

Next year. Last month, 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 — 1944 and 2024 — are forthcoming.

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.”

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.
