Paramount Network has the exclusive rights to air the new season of Yellowstone S5 in the States. But, rather annoyingly, it doesn't have the rights to stream new episodes on Paramount+.

What to expect from Yellowstone season 5

Season 4 of Yellowstone was explosive, ending with a wedding and a murder. Will Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan continue where he left off? Here's the official synopsis for the two-hour premiere...

"John Dutton is sworn in as Governor of Montana; as John settles into the powers of his new office, he makes bold moves to protect the Yellowstone from his opponents; the bunkhouse and the Duttons enjoy the Governor's ball."

The trailer for season 5 also reveals what to expect from Yellowstone season 5. Captioned "Power has price", it shows storm clouds gathering as John Dutton fires his governing staff and appoints Beth as his new chief-of-staff. How will Caroline Warner react? Elsewhere, we see Teeter punching Ryan and Beth fighting a bar.

Fun fact: the first 'chapter' of Yellowstone season 5 is expected to help introduce another of Taylor Sheridan's projects – Sylvester Stallone-led crime drama Tulsa King.

Yellowstone the TV show centres around the dysfunctional Dutton family and their vast Montana cattle ranch. The show has gone from strength to strength since launching in 2018, scoring 8.7/10 on IMDb and spawning spin-offs such as 1884 and the upcoming 1923 with Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford.

The original season of Yellowstone starred actors Kevin Costner (Dances With Wolves), Wes Bentley (American Beauty) and Luke Grimes (American Sniper). Fast forward to 2022 and Yellowstone is cresting a huge wave of popularity thanks to its mix of family intrigue and tense gun-slinging. It's basically Succession on the prairie.
