Originally Yellowstone Season 5, Part 2 Was Premiering In Summer Of 2023

For those fans who are wondering why the remainder of Season 5 of Paramount’s flagship series has not been announced, it is because it has been delayed.

Originally, Yellowstone Season 5, Part 2 was going to premiere in the summer. However, there were some on-set issues that led to delays in filming. This includes some tensions with Kevin Costner’s availability.

Sources have reported that the Field Of Dreams star is only available to film for about a week. While his lawyer Marty Singer has characterized this generalization as “lies,” Taylor Sheridan has been tardy getting scripts ready. Therefore, they cannot film.

Originally, they were going to film the entirety of Season 5 in 2022, but Costner got Covid, and Sheridan did not have scripts ready anyhow.

Sources claim that though Costner was ready to film in January, Sheridan was too preoccupied with his other shows to get the job done for his flagship series. This escalated in February. Since then, it has been a chaotic three months of uncertainty.

Finally, just this week, Paramount confirmed that the series will end with these final six episodes. But, they don’t plan on filming until late summer, with a hopeful premiere in November.

Now, it seems that Paramount is giving fans something to watch while they wait. Don’t miss 1883, the Dutton origin story, airing on Paramount starting on Sunday, June 18.
