Yellowstone ‘s mid-season finale just aired on Paramount Network in the US, and now fans will have to wait a long time to see how the story unfolds.

In fact, the second part of the season will debut next summer, at a date to be determined.

Yellowstone season 5 will be longer than its predecessors, with fourteen episodes instead of the usual ten. Eight of these were aired, almost as much as a canonical season.

The new season kicked off with a record: the premiere gained 52% in the adult 18-34 segment over that of season 4. More than 12 million viewers watched the first episode across all platforms on which it was made available.

Created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson , Yellowstone stars Kevin Costner , Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, Forrie Smith, Denim Richards, Ian Bohen, Finn Little, Ryan Bingham and Gil Birmingham .

Season 5 also saw the return of Josh Lucas as young John Dutton, as well as Jacki Weaver, Kylie Rogers and Kyle Red Silverstein . The cast was also joined by Kai Caster, Lainey Wilson, Lilli Kay and Dawn Olivieri .
