Yellowstone is a neo-western series following the Dutton ranching family - they have a long history in the American West and are the proud owners of Yellowstone ranch. The series has proven to be very popular and has so far spawned two prequel shows - 1883, which follows an earlier generation of Duttons as they embark on their westward journey, and 1923, which sees the Duttons struggle through Prohibition and the Great Depression.

What is Yellowstone season 5 about?

The ending of season four of Yellowstone saw Jamie kill his father Garrett, who had previously killed his own wife and organised a failed hit on the Duttons. Jimmy made the decision to leave Montanna for his fiancée Emily and the 6666 ranch in Texas, while John took the huge decision to run for governor of the State of Montana.

In season five, John is sworn in as governor, and with the powers of his new office is better placed to protect his ranch from his rivals. Jimmy and Emily are set to return this season, and several unanswered questions from season four need to be answered.

Jamie’s future is unclear - he was photographed killing Garrett, so will have to tread carefully to avoid jail. Additionally, after John’s daughter Beth was fired from Market Equities, she finds a new role as her father’s chief of staff. John will have to face against political enemies as he tries to hold his family, and his ranch together.
