Season four of everyone’s favorite ranching drama is coming to a close this Sunday, and while there has yet to be any official announcement about additional seasons, that certainly hasn’t stopped Yellowstone fans from anticipating a much longer future for the Duttons. Here’s what we know so far about a potential season 5.
Will there be a Yellowstone season 5?
Paramount Network has not yet announced whether they’ll be picking up any new seasons of the show, but given Yellowstone‘s history of major ratings and the ever-expanding Yellowstone universe, it would come as a shock if the network chose not to continue production.
In March 2021, star Cole Hauser, who plays the show’s enigmatic heartthrob Rip, shared in a virtual happy hour with Hall Wines that preparations for a fifth season were already in the works. “[Showrunner and writer Taylor Sheridan] is working on it right now,” he told Kathryn Hall. “Season five is going to be wonderful. The way we ended season four—I can’t give too much away, but the way season four ends, I think the audience… will be happily surprised.”
He later added, “For us as actors, and I think I can speak for everybody… we come together. This is now going into our fifth year,” seeming to off-handedly confirm at least one more outing for the denizens of the Dutton ranch.

The Yellowstone universe is growing.
In addition to a possible fifth season, the show’s creator Taylor Sheridan has already begun to expand the Yellowstone canon on Paramount+. In addition to the Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, and Sam Elliott-starring prequel, 1883, which began airing in December, Sheridan has also inked a deal for an in-development spinoff, which is currently operating under the working title 6666.
SIGN UP FOR PARAMOUNT+
Like 1883 and Sheridan’s other show, Mayor of Kingstown, 6666 is expected to be streaming-first on Paramount+, though no date has yet been announced for when it may debut. The synopsis released along with the show’s announcement seems to suggest that it will be set in the modern day, on the historic 6666 Ranch (the actual 266,000 acre property of which was acquired by Sheridan this year) in West Texas. This would certainly be in keeping with season four of Yellowstone, which saw beleaguered ranch hand Jimmy being sent off to spend some time at the 6666 ranch, and left some to speculate whether he would be making further appearances on the spin-off.
Read the full synopsis below:
Founded when Comanches still ruled West Texas, no ranch in America is more steeped in the history of the West than the 6666. Still operating as it did two centuries before, and encompassing an entire county, the 6666 is where the rule of law and the laws of nature merge in a place where the most dangerous thing one does is the next thing … The 6666 is synonymous with the merciless endeavor to raise the finest horses and livestock in the world, and ultimately where world class cowboys are born and made.
