Yellowstone, the ranching drama starring Kevin Costner, has been renewed for a fifth season for ViacomCBS-Paramount Network.
The series had record views for its finale, which aired last January and attracted more than 10 million viewers in total. With that kind of success, it was a given that the Dutton family would return for another season.
Yellowstone centers on Wyoming rancher John Dutton, a sixth-generation farmer, and father of four. Its property is the largest ranch in the U.S., with a sprawling city, an Indian reservation, and the first U.S. national park on its borders. The Dutton family is constantly trying to protect the ranch from corrupt politicians and corporations and developers who appropriate land.
