Trailer Hints at Major Showdowns
Paramount Network released an intense trailer teasing the action to come when Yellowstone returns on July 5, 2023. The trailer shows the Duttons facing new obstacles, including Jamie threatening to bring down the family and protesters storming the ranch.
Beth and Rip get ready to confront their enemies, with Beth vowing to protect the ranch at all costs. The trailer ends with a shot of John Dutton yelling “this is the last stand!” hinting at an epic showdown ahead.
Release Date Set for Summer 2023
Yellowstone season 5 part 1 ended on a cliffhanger on January 1, 2023. Fans will only have to wait a few months to see what happens next, as the show returns with new episodes on July 5, 2023.
The mid-season break allows the cast and crew to handle the challenges of filming on location in Montana during the winter months. Viewers can now count down the weeks until Yellowstone rides back onto their screens next summer.
What’s Next for the Dutton Family?
Season 5 part 1 focused on John Dutton adjusting to his new role as Governor of Montana and facing protests over land access. Part 2 will likely continue these storylines as the Duttons confront shifting state politics.
We’ll also probably see more of Jamie’s alliance with his biological father Garrett Randall, who wants to destroy the Dutton empire. Meanwhile, Kayce and Monica will have to deal with their son Tate’s traumatic encounter with a predator.
Of course, fans can expect plenty of drama between Beth and Rip, especially now that they’re finally married. With new threats closing in, the Duttons will have to band together like never before.
The End is Near
Kevin Costner has hinted that season 5 could be the show’s last, or at least his last playing John Dutton. If so, we can expect some huge shifts and high-stakes moments in the final episodes as major storylines come to a head.
While fans may be sad to say goodbye, they can take solace that the Dutton saga isn’t over yet. For now, the countdown is on for the explosive events in store when Yellowstone season 5 returns this July!
