Yellowstone fans watched the midseason finale on January 1, 2023, but we'll have to hold our horses a bit until the new episodes of season 5 air this summer. While the Duttons are taking a break, you can catch up on all the drama from the season's first eight episodes along with old seasons of the most-watched show on cable. 

Keeping up with Yellowstone has always been a bit tricky — the Paramount Network series, unlike prequels 1883 and 1923, is not available on Paramount+ — but we’ve got all the tips and tricks to make sure you can watch new episodes of Yellowstone in real-time. Here’s how to watch Yellowstone season 5 and catch up on past seasons in case you’re behind.

Yellowstone follows the Duttons, a family of landowners who control the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. The season 5, part 2 teaser trailer doesn't reveal much, but the full season 5 trailer (released in 2022) shows John Dutton being sworn in as the new governor of Montana, and that’s only where the twists begin. The drama-packed series stars Kevin Costner, ​​Kelly Reilly, Cole Hauser and more. Plus, after the success of the Yellowstone prequel, 1883, fans are also getting a few more spin-offs. 

The fifth season expanded to a whopping 14 episodes airing in two parts, and Paramount Network has announced that the show will return for season 5, part 2 in Summer 2023.

Yellowstone Season 5, Part 2 premiere date and time

With just six episodes to go in Yellowstone Season 5, we have a lot of unfinished business. Part 2 of Yellowstone season 5 will commence in Summer 2023.
