• Yellowstone has been renewed for season 5
  • Two cast members will have bigger roles
  • The TV show aired the season 4 finale last month

Big news for Yellowstone fans: the series has been renewed for a fifth season. The news comes one month after the popular TV show aired the season 4 finale.

Yellowstone confirms cast news on season 5 renewal

Today, the Paramount TV show announced on Twitter: "We've got some super sweet news: Yellowstone season 5 is a go. See you back at the ranch!"

On top of the renewal, two cast members have been upgraded to full-time roles in the new season, according to Deadline.

They are: Jennifer Landon, who plays the ranch hand "Teeter," and Kathryn Kelly, who plays "Emily," the girlfriend of "Jimmy" (Jefferson White).

Also interesting:

The bigger role for "Emily" appears to suggest "Jimmy" isn't leaving Yellowstone just yet — which was a worry for fans after the season 4 finale.

Otherwise, Kevin Costner and the cast are returning as the "Dutton" family in season 5.

No word on a release date just yet, but the TV show, which has been setting ratings records, will begin shooting season 5 in May.
