Yellowstone has become one of the biggest shows on television. The season 4 finale ratings hit a new series high with 9.3 million total viewers. The explosion in viewership led to the spinoff 1883 on Paramount Plus, as well as the upcoming Yellowstone prequel 1923. Showrunner Tyler Sheridan even has a different show, Tulsa King starring Sylvester Stallone, currently streaming on Paramount Plus.

Yellowstone season 5 continues the saga of the Dutton family, who control the largest contiguous ranch in the United States. This is still frontier country and the ranch is under constant threat from land developers, an Indian reservation and conservation activists. 

Now, John Dutton (Kevin Costner) is the newly elected governor of Montana and has more power than ever — but it also makes him a bigger target. Here's everything you need to watch Yellowstone season 5 online. Plus, watch the trailer below:
