Production for Yellowstone‘s fifth season is underway. The entire main cast is returning for the new season, including Kevin Costner as John Dutton, Cole Hauser as Rip Wheeler, and Kelly Reilly as Beth Dutton.

Months ago, we received news that Jennifer Landon (Teeter) and Kathryn Kelly (Emily) were upgraded to series regulars for Season 5. More recently, Entertainment Weekly reported that Mo Brings Plenty (Mo) and Wendy Moniz (Governor Lynelle Perry) have also been promoted to series regulars.

A few familiar faces are confirmed to be returning for Season 5. According to Entertainment Weekly‘s report, fans can look forward to seeing Josh Lucas (young John Dutton), Jacki Weaver (Caroline Warner), Kylie Rogers (young Beth Dutton), and Kyle Red Silverstein (young Rip Wheeler).

But that’s not all! Yellowstone has also cast a number of new roles for its upcoming season.

Entertainment Weekly detailed all of the individuals that were cast, and who they’ll play:

New additions to the Yellowstone cast include Kai Caster as young cowboy Rowdy; Lainey Wilson as a musician named Abby; Lilli Kay as Clara Brewer, a new assistant for one of the Duttons; and Dawn Olivieri as Sarah Atwood, a confident corporate shark and new arrival to Montana. Olivieri is no stranger to the Yellowstone universe, having already appeared as Claire Dutton on the prequel series 1883.”

Did y’all recognize Lainey Wilson’s name in that list? The two-time ACM Award-winning country artist is no stranger to the Yellowstone universe. Several of her songs have been featured on the show’s soundtrack.

Wilson celebrated her casting by sharing a photo that shows her at the Yellowstone ranch. She captioned it, “see y’all on season 5 of @yellowstone.”
