The first half of Yellowstone Season 5 came to a volatile and dramatic conclusion in January 2023, with the show's producers promising that the second half would be arriving later in the year.
Originally slated for a summer 2023 release, the second eight episodes of Season 5 are now not expected to be shown until November 2023, as a result of the ongoing screenwriters strike.
Here, we'll have all the up-to-date news and latest soundtrack from each episode of Yellowstone Season 5 Part 2.
Unfortunately, due to the strike, it seems filming for Season 5 Part 2 has not yet commenced. Lainey Wilson, who plays on-screen musician and Ryan's love interest, Abby, revealed in a recent People interview that even she is unaware as to where things currently stand.
Lainey joked that she is still waiting to find out Abby's fate from Yellowstone's creator, “I have realized that the TV world is even crazier than the music world. I'm like, ‘Taylor Sheridan, you gotta let me know what's going on, bro’. I'm excited to see what happens. There’s no doubt the rest of Season 5 is gonna be money”.
The celebrated drama follows the Dutton family's attempts to keep hold of their sprawling, all-encompassing ranch in Montana, amidst a variety of challenges and attacks from their (surprisingly plentiful) group of enemies. Kevin Costner's lead character, John Dutton, began Season 5 by being sworn in as the reluctant new Governor of Montana, while Rip and Beth's endearing love-story continued to blossom.
We won't spoil the first half of Season 5 in case you're still catching up - but it's safe to say the producers left viewers balanced on a certified cliff-hanger by the end of the eighth episode.
As well as being renowned for its riveting plot-lines, spectacular setting and multi-dimensional characters, Yellowstone is also championed for its alt-country, red dirt and Americana soundtrack.
Season 5 Part 1 featured songs such as Zach Bryan's ‘The Good I'll Do’ and Lainey Wilson's ‘Smell Like Smoke’, as well as including on-screen appearances from both artists.
Part 2 will presumably feature some new music from Luke Grimes, who plays fan-favourite character, Kayce Dutton. Grimes continues to release a flurry of singles ahead of his debut country album, which is expected to be made available later in the year.
