Paramount Network airs Yellowstone in the States, but it doesn't have the rights to stream new episodes on Paramount Plus. 

Instead, you'll need a Peacock subscription to stream Season 5, Part 1, but episodes drop a while after they've aired, so if you want instant access to cable channels, including Paramount Network, ready for Part 2, you can go through cord-cutting services such as Sling TV with Comedy Extra ($46/month) and Philo ($25/month).

What to expect from Yellowstone season 5

Season 4 of Yellowstone was explosive, ending with a wedding and a murder. Did Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan continue where he left off? No spoilers here, but the official synopsis for the two-hour premiere reads:

"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 gives a glimpse of Yellowstone's fifth season. Captioned "Power has price", it showed storm clouds gathering as John Dutton fired his governing staff and appointed Beth as his new chief-of-staff. How did Caroline Warner react? Again, we won't spoil anything for new viewers.

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.
