What We Know About ‘Yellowstone’ Season 5
As previously reported, we don’t know when “Yellowstone” Season 5 will premiere. But we do know that the season will have 14 episodes. However, as a result of the number of episodes, the season will be split up. Chris McCarthy, Chief Executive of ViacomCBS Media Networks and MTV Entertainment studios, also explained why the season will be split up. “We want to double down on that momentum and not waste it.”
McCarthy also recently told Parade, “Yellowstone continues to shatter records with more than 11 million viewers tuning in for the season finale, proving we’ve hit a cultural nerve. From the center of the country to each of the coasts. And still have lots of room to grow on linear.”
McCarthy then added that the network’s strategy to franchise “Yellowstone” into a universe of series. It will be used to fuel growth for Paramount+ is already exceeding expectations. With “1883” and “Mayor of Kingstown” proving to be two of the top titles.
Meanwhile, “Yellowstone” creator Taylor Sheridan did confirm that he is still in the process of writing Season 5 of the hit series.
