Kevin Costner’s western drama series Yellowstone — dubbed “anti-woke” by some critics and widely snubbed at awards shows — promises more drama in its fifth season.
The Paramount Network released the first teaser of the show’s highly anticipated fifth season during a commercial break of the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night.
It comes after the series was finally recognized by the SAG Awards earlier this year after receiving an Outstanding Achievement nomination despite being snubbed for years.
The 16-second clip begins with narration, “We’re going to show the world who we are… and what we do,” along with some stars, beginning with Kelly Reilly (Bethany “Beth” Dutton). .

The teaser then promises that “everything will be revealed” as the music intensifies with a crescendo.
The footage ends with a shot of Costner (John Dutton) playing the series’ patriarch, leading the charge with Reilly and Wendy Moniz (Governor Lynelle Perry) and others.

Coming this fall: Yellowstone’s two-hour season five premiere premieres November 13 on the Paramount Network
The overwhelming popularity of the modern day ranch show streaming on Paramount has only grown in recent years, with a record 15 million people tuning in for the season four finale.
Although Yellowstone is often compared to HBO’s Succession — they came out the same year and are both family-owned dramas — it breaks with the hit series’ mold as it’s set in Montana rather than the East or West Coast. Shooting takes place in Utah.
And unlike shows like Succession, which set current dramas in the Big Apple or Los Angeles, Yellowstone avoids big city problems and political correctness conflicts, instead taking a look at rural America, where local businesses are losing wealth and power in a changing nation.
Yellowstone focuses on the Dutton family and their ranch in Montana
The show premiered in 2018, and while it had respectable ratings, last year’s season three premiere attracted only about half — 4.23 million viewers — of the current season’s viewership.
Yellowstone focuses on Costner’s John Dutton, a Montana landowner who oversees his wealth and family, a setting rarely seen among modern top shows.
Emily VanDerWerff, a television critic at Vox, ultimately credits Yellowstone’s success to its ability to tap into Central America and portray a different kind of fantasy.
“Yellowstone is comfortable in the leisurely pleasures of a world where all is as it should be. “That’s fine,” it says as the evening sun spreads red fire in the west.”
Although the show has received little media attention despite its high viewership, it received its fair share of criticism when it first aired.
The Yellowstone series is only available on Stan in Australia.
Yellowstone follows life on a family ranch run by Costner’s John Dutton
Yellowstone follows the history of the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, who controls the largest ranch in the United States.
The drama, set in the 1880s, springs from Dutton’s ambition to hold on to his wealth and his land, which is under constant attack from greedy land developers, a Native American reservation and national park of the same name.
Kevin Costner plays John, the sixth-generation patriarch who runs the ranch.
Luke Grimes, best known for his roles in American Sniper and Fifty Shades of Grey, takes on the role of John’s son, Kayce Dutton, a former US Navy SEAL married to a local Native American woman.
English actress Kelly Reilly plays John’s daughter, Beth Dutton, a financier and master manipulator who suffers from substance abuse and is loyal to her father.
Cole Hauser – a veteran actor who has starred in Dazed and Confused, Good Will Hunting and The Break Up – also plays Rip Wheeler, John’s right-hand man and Beth’s lover.
The show’s popularity has grown rapidly since its 2018 pilot garnered 2.83 million views. By the season 3 finale, The World is Purple, more than 5 million people were watching the show.
The premiere of the last double episode of the fourth season had about 8.38 million viewers.
