Moreover, the fans should be aware that the series was postponed due to the worldwide pandemic, and production for Season 4 was also delayed, so details about the season launch take a little time. 

On the bright side! According to the statement made by the Paramount Network in mid-February, it was later announced that Yellowstone Season 5 would air in two installments with a total of 14 episodes. So fans have to be patient and wait for the next adventure till it’s launched.

Yellowstone Season 5 Plot

Some of the lingering questions that could be addressed in the next season are highlighted below:

The plot about Jamie Dutton’s political career effectively ended when he was caught in a compromising position with Beth. Beth may serve as her father’s campaign manager in his run for governor. Will Beth keep conspiring against Caroline Warner and Market Equities? Will Warner follow through on her threats against Beth and the Dutton property?

Fans are curious to know if Carter re-establish Beth’s trust. Will Beth give in and let him call her “Momma”? Will Walker leave the ranch for good after Mia and go next season? Could Bingham appear in the 6666 spin-off series?

Hopefully, we’ll get answers to all these questions and more on the next season of Yellowstone.
