- 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).
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.
