The anticipation is palpable as fans eagerly await the return of the hit ranching drama, Yellowstone, with its fifth season’s mid-season break in full swing. Scheduled to make its comeback with additional episodes in November, viewers are both excited and apprehensive as the ongoing strikes of the writers and actors guilds hover over the release date. With the recent revelation that these upcoming episodes will mark the show’s final-ever moments, many are turning to the earlier seasons of this captivating western tale. Whether you’re in need of a refresher on the tumultuous events at the Dutton ranch or embarking on your first journey into the series, here’s your comprehensive guide to catching up on Yellowstone.

Streaming Options

Streaming enthusiasts have reason to celebrate—the first half of Yellowstone’s fifth season is now available for streaming on Peacock. This release joins the ranks of the previously aired four seasons of the show, which have already found their home on Peacock. With summer in full swing, it’s the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the drama before the final episodes arrive.

Although Yellowstone airs on the Paramount Network, it’s not currently accessible through the Paramount+ streaming service. However, fans can delve into the world of the Duttons with the hit prequel show 1883 and the second Dutton origin story, 1923, both available on Paramount+.

While Netflix and Hulu are not hosting Yellowstone at the moment, all the current episodes can be purchased through Amazon Prime (please note, Prime members do not currently have access to the show for free.)

Additionally, for those who prefer live TV subscription services, options like Philo provide access to the show, and episodes can be purchased via iTunes or Vudu.

Cable Viewing

Yellowstone’s premieres are exclusively on Paramount Network, with concurrent airings on TV Land, CMT, and Pop. Furthermore, for viewers who wish to catch up or re-watch episodes, Paramount Network’s website offers online streaming when signing in through your television provider.

As CBS unveiled its fall schedule in July 2023, they also disclosed that re-runs of Yellowstone’s past seasons will be making their broadcast debut on the network. The first episode is set to air on Sunday, September 17 at 8:30 p.m. (though timing may shift if the NFL doubleheader extends). CBS will be starting the broadcast with season one, providing an ideal entry point for first-time Dutton watchers.

Whether you’re a dedicated follower eager for more Dutton drama or a newcomer curious to unravel the intrigue, the world of Yellowstone beckons. With a multitude of streaming options and the forthcoming CBS broadcasts, there’s no shortage of ways to get up to speed on the ranching saga before it bids its final farewell.
