There’s a little something new for everyone to stream as we prepare for Thanksgiving. If you’re in the mood for a holiday classic, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is available on Apple TV+ (and it’s free for everyone on Sunday, November 19). Perhaps you’re looking for a new indie movie to watch? If so, Ray Romano’s evocative directorial debut Somewhere in Queens in streaming on Hulu.

But what about Yellowstone, you ask? Well, partner, we have a mix of good and bad news. Two Season 2 episodes are airing Sunday night on CBS (more on that below), but there won’t be a new installment of Taylor Sheridan’s beloved Western tonight. Or next week. Or the week after that.

When exactly will Yellowstone return with new episodes? Here’s everything we know.

Is Yellowstone on Tonight (11/19/23)?

Nope. Yellowstone isn’t on Paramount Network tonight. The network is airing the 2018 movie A Star is Born at 6:00 p.m. ET, followed by Titanic at 9:00 p.m. ET.

However, CBS will air back-to-back Season 2 episodes of Yellowstone (“Touching Your Enemy” and “Blood the Boy”) starting at 9:00 p.m. ET.

Where To Watch Yellowstone Season 5 Online:

All five seasons of Yellowstone are available on Peacock Premium. You can also stream select Season 5 episodes on-demand via the Paramount Network website, fuboTVSling TV (the $6/month “Comedy Extra” add-on), Hulu + Live TVYouTube TVPhilo, or DIRECTV STREAM.

Finally, individual episodes and complete seasons of Yellowstone are available to purchase on Amazon.

When Does Yellowstone Return With New Episodes?

Long story short: Next year. Earlier this month, Paramount Network announced that Yellowstone will return for the second half of Season 5 in November 2024. The network also revealed that two new Yellowstone spinoffs — currently titled 1944 and 2024 — are forthcoming.

No plot details for 1944 or 2024 were announced, but Variety reports that 2024 is expected to begin airing following the conclusion of Yellowstone, with the show featuring “new cast members and locations with some crossover characters as well.” This is the series that would most likely include Matthew McConaughey, who’s been rumored to star in a Yellowstone spinoff since April.

The second half of Season 5 was originally supposed to consist of six episodes, but during a June 2023 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sheridan said that he might write more than the previously reported six installments. “If I think it takes ten episodes to wrap it up, they’ll give me ten,” he said. “It’ll be as long as it needs to be.”

Is Kevin Costner Leaving Yellowstone?

Production on the second half of Season 5 has yet to begin, so Costner’s level of involvement in the remaining episodes remains a mystery. The actor revealed in a September court trial that he was initially offered $24 million to do Seasons 5, 6, and 7 of Yellowstone but there were “issues with creative.”

Per Deadline, another source of contention centered around the star’s shooting schedule. Costner reportedly wanted more time to spend on his upcoming multi-part Western movie Horizon: An American Saga, a film in which he starred, directed, co-wrote, and produced.

The situation remains in flux — Costner said in September that he’ll “probably go to court” over his Yellowstone exit — so it’s safe to say that he almost certainly won’t be involved in future spinoffs.
