During a tumultuous and disappointing period for Yellowstone fans, we finally have some good news!
After rumors of a rift between Kevin Costner and the show’s creator, Taylor Sheridan, it’s not really a surprise that the second half of season 5 will be its swan song.
Scheduled to premiere in November, the back half of season 5 of Yellowstone has yet to begin filming. While Sheridan has written a bulk of the episodes, the current writers’ strike prohibits any of the staff writers to work so we expect some scenes will likely be written days or even hours before they film when production begins.
So what’s a Yellowstone fan to do for the next six months? While most Yellowstone fans have seen the two prequel series, 1883 and 1923, both which stream exclusively on Paramount+, many have not. Viewers will get a chance to watch 1883 in its entirety soon when it airs on Paramount Network.
Starting on Sunday, June 18 at 8 p.m. ET, 1883 will be broadcast on Paramount Network. Episodes will drop weekly on Sundays at 8 p.m. ET and will also include extended featurettes from the series.
