Journey into the wild, wild west and watch Yellowstone online to check out one of the most popular shows on cable TV.
The drama, starring Kevin Costner as a ranch patriarch, is a huge hit for the Paramount Network. Following the massive ratings for the season 4 finale, Yellowstone season 5 is already in the works.
The show's ratings success led to a spinoff, the prequel 1883 that tells the origin story of the Dutton family. It's streaming now on Paramount Plus. Three more spinoffs —6666, 1932 and 1883: The Bass Reeves Story — are in the works.
In Yellowstone, Costner plays John Dutton, head of his family, which has owned the Dutton Ranch for six generations. The ranch is located near Yellowstone National Park and Native American reservations.
He oversees the ranch alongside his son, Kayce Dutton (Lucas Grimes), a former Navy SEAL. Kayce is married to a Native American woman, Monica (Kelsey Asbille Chow), and they have a young boy named Tate. John's adoptive son, Jamie (Wes Bentley) is an attorney and aspiring politician.
Then there's John's daughter, Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly), a financier who has struggled with substance abuse problems. She married the ranch foreman, Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser).
The Duttons are continually fighting to maintain control over the ranch. They deal with thorny political machinations, battle greedy land developers and manage tensions with the local indigenous tribes. Season 4 ended with John seeking the governorship, Beth gathering blackmail material on Jamie and Kayce facing an uncertain future.
Fans can get behind-the-scenes details and juicy gossip from the official Yellowstone podcast, which brings in cast and crew members to talk about the show.
