Yellowstone is soon to be back on screens with the second part of its fifth and final season airing soon. After the release of the first season back in 2018, the show was quick to earn stellar reviews. The Paramount Network has worked with Yellowstone on multiple spin-offs that included 1883, and 1923 as well as Lawmen: Bass Reeves. The series centers around the lives of the Dutton family which own the largest ranch in Montana, known as the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch. The storyline of the show follows the family headed by John Dutton III through their daily lives. It also gives us a glimpse of how they navigate situations such as sneaky family members, neighbor conflicts and issues with the government. The final season was divided into two parts with the first half airing in January 2023. The delay in releasing the second part of the fifth season amounts to the controversies that surround the lead actor Kevin Costner as well as the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes.

His creation of John Dutton is symbolic and powerful… and I’ve never had an issue with Kevin Costner that he and I couldn’t work out on the phone… I’m disappointed. It truncates the closure of his character. It doesn’t alter it, but it truncates it.”
