Warning: This article contains spoilers for Yellowstone season 5 part 1.


Yellowstone is set to return this summer for what could be the last time. The first part of the fifth season arrived in November 2022 with eight episodes – and left fans hanging with a dramatic cliffhanger mid-season finale.

And the end may be nigh for the Paramount Network series, according to Deadline, after a scheduling dispute with the show's star Kevin Costner who portrays the Dutton patriarch, John Dutton.

However, a Matthew McConaughey-led spin-off show will continue the Dutton family saga, along with several original Yellowstone cast members, it has now been confirmed, regardless of whether Costner decides to return to the main series or not.

The new spin-off will join Taylor Sheridan’s expanding Yellowstone universe, including prequels 1883 and 1923.

So far in this fifth season, we've seen John being sworn in as Governor of Montana with the rancher trying his best to protect Yellowstone from his opponents.

A trailer for Yellowstone season 5 part 2 was previously unveiled, teasing familiar foes, new villains and a whole lot more drama for the Duttons in the upcoming instalment.

With season 5 part 2 on the horizon, read on to find out how can you watch Yellowstone in the UK as well as its spin-off series.

Yellowstone prequel series 1883, which stars Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Sam Elliott, with the former two playing Costner's character John Dutton's ancestors, debuted in the US in December last year, and we have some good news for UK fans.

As with the first three seasons of Yellowstone, the first season of 1883 has landed on Paramount Plus following its launch in the UK. That means all 10 episodes are available on the streamer.

Meanwhile, follow-up series 1883: The Bass Reeves Story is set to star David Oyelowo as the title character, "a legendary lawman of the Wild West". We don't yet have word on when that series will arrive in either the US or the UK, but will keep this page updated once further news has been revealed.

Where to watch 1923 in the UK

By far the starriest spin-off of them all, 1923 was announced in May of this year, and we can't wait to see what the team have in store.

The series stars Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren as Jacob and Cara Dutton, in a story which introduces "a new generation of the Dutton family and explore the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition, and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home."

Ford told Vanity Fair that his character is "the silverback", adding: "He’s responsible for that branch of the family. These are two people with a very strong bond to each other who are facing really complicated circumstances."

Meanwhile, Mirren revealed that her character speaks with an Irish accent rather than an American one, explaining: "I see Cara as an immigrant. One of the things I very strongly wanted was that she would speak with an Irish accent, not with an American accent.

"It’s always slightly annoyed me with Westerns that you have all these people speaking with modern American accents when in fact so many of them were fairly recent immigrants."

It debuted in the US on Sunday 18th December 2022, while in the UK the series debuted on Paramount Plus on Monday 19th December.

6666 was announced in early 2021, as a present day Yellowstone spin-off that will focus on the Four Sixes ranch in West Texas. No official cast has been announced for the series yet, so we may be a way off from seeing it either in the US or here in the UK. However, we do have this explainer for the series, as released by Paramount Plus: "Founded when Comanches still ruled West Texas, no ranch in America is more steeped in the history of the West than the 6666.

"Still operating as it did two centuries before, and encompassing an entire county, the 6666 has inspired a new scripted series where the rule of law and the laws of nature merge in a place where the most dangerous thing one does is the next thing.

"The 6666 is synonymous with the merciless endeavour to raise the finest horses and livestock in the world, and ultimately where world-class cowboys are born and made."

While originally announced for Paramount Plus in the US, the series has subsequently been moved to the Paramount Network, so exactly which platform it will land on in the UK remains to be seen.

Yellowstone season 5 airs new episodes weekly on Paramount Plus, while seasons 1-4 are available to stream now in full.
