The Season 4 finale of Yellowstone aired on Paramount Network on Sunday, January 2nd. SO much happened, and we broke it all down for you here.

Because of everything that happened in the finale, we have so many questions about the future of all our favorite characters. The question on everyone’s minds is when will Season 5 premiere?

And we have the answer to that…sort of. We do know that there will be a Season 5, even though it hasn’t been formally announced.

On January 4, after the Season 4 finale, Cole Hauser took to this Instagram and wrote, “See y’all in S5! Thank you again for being the best fans and the continued support of @yellowstone and making us #1 in all the land.”



Kelly Reilly also wrote, “See you season 5” on her Instagram post about the finale.

Additionally, in a December 2021 article from Deadline, it was revealed that production on Season 5 will begin in May.

The previous four premiere dates were as follows:

  • Yellowstone Season 1: June 20, 2018
  • Yellowstone Season 2: June 19, 2019
  • Yellowstone Season 3: June 21, 2020
  • Yellowstone Season 4: November 7, 2021

It was lined up to be a summer series, but the COVID-19 pandemic threw a wrench into the Season 4 plans, so it became a Fall show. Seeing as Season 5 begins filming in May, it looks like it will follow suit and premiere in the fall once again.

Even though we will have to wait the better part of a year, we are so excited!
