Yellowstone Season 5 Episodes 1 and 2 premiered on November 13 on Paramount Network, with episodes 3 – 8 weekly at the same time.
The premiere surpassed expectations amassing 12.1 million live-plus-same-day viewers, representing a new record!
Looking at the release of the Season 5 trailer alone showed us just how popular the new season will be. It had recorded 14 million views in just 24 hours!
The trailer shows us John Dutton being sworn in as governor. This is the main theme of the trailer, so we can expect that Season 5 will focus more on John Dutton’s governorship and its implications for the Dutton family.
With so many people keenly tuning in to follow the Dutton family as they fight to keep their spacious Montana ranch, many fans wonder how to watch the new season 5 and its future episodes for free.

UK and Canada fans can watch season 5 for free by signing up for the Paramount+ 7-day free trial. If wanting to watch all episodes, it would be best to sign up for the free trial when every episode is available to watch.
Season 5 won’t be available to watch or stream on Paramount+ at this time in the US, even though it is under Paramount’s name.
NBCUniversal, the owners of Peacock, purchased the streaming rights to Yellowstone in 2020 before Paramount+ was launched in 2021. Therefore, Paramount+ doesn’t have streaming rights in the US, but Peacock does.
You could also watch season 5 for free by signing up for the Peacock 7-day free trial. However, Yellowstone Season 5 will be released on Peacock sometime after the finale episode of Season 5, just as it did in previous seasons.
Looking at the Season 4 release on Peacock, the series concluded on January 2, 2022, and the full 10-episode season became available on March 28, 2022.
