The fifth season of Paramount Network’s hit drama series “Yellowstone” is just around the corner. The Taylor Sheridan universe released a sneak peek (Sept. 29) of the upcoming episodes in a new finger-biting trailer.
Following a record-breaking season and action-packed finale, fans receive a glimpse of the alarming politics that will take place weekly in the binge-worthy show. The short snippet opens with John Dutton, played by Oscar-winner Kevin Costner being sworn in as Governor of Montana. With authority and power, he promotes his daughter Beth Dutton [Kelly Reilly] as Chief of Staff to expand his family empire and save the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch.
“I John Dutton, do solemnly swear to uphold the constitution of the state of Montana,” said the cattle rancher with his hand placed on the Holy Bible. “Against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” he added.
Although Dutton scored a seat at an influential table, the former governor [Wendy Moniz] warned him to keep a close eye on his disloyal committee.
“You have no friend in this building, John,” she said. “You’re gonna have to bring your own,” she added.
In true Dutton fashion, he set the record straight by firing the committee of enemies. The impulsive decision led to chaos and “war.”
“I love Montana, but I’m doing this for our family,” Dutton uttered before signing off on a declaration that signifies war.
The trailer did not confirm whether the Dutton clan clashes with the Indian reservation or their vicious business rivalries that developed throughout the previous seasons. Complex conversations, murder, heated arguments, pure moments, and more are displayed in the captivating clip.
The award-winning Western Drama first premiered in the summer of 2018. The intriguing narrative chronicles the Dutton family, led by John Dutton. The cowboy owns the largest cattle ranch in the United States. The shifting alliances, mysterious murders, and continuous conflicts lured in TV enthusiasts.
