‘Yellowstone’ gets a new streaming home, but not in the US
Yellowstone will soon have a new streaming home, it just won’t be in the US anytime soon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the launch of Paramount+ in the UK brought the show into the fold alongside spin-offs. 1883 and related projects by creator Taylor Sheridan. Sly Stallone was on hand to promote king of tulsaSheridan’s last, just like Yellowstone star Kevin Costner to celebrate the launch.
The show is available to stream in the United States, it’s just a bit far from Paramount’s streaming platform. Prior to the launch of the service, an agreement was reached for Yellowstone to have a streaming premiere on Peacock, where the early seasons of the show are live. Paramount+ in the US offers all other Yellowstone-tie-in series, while the series itself still airs on the Paramount Network.
Even without the original Yellowstone series on the platform in the US, Paramount+ still has a slew of content for fans to peruse. 1883 premiered to rave reviews, telling the prequel story of how the Duttons first arrived at the legendary ranch. It will soon be joined by a Bass Reeves spin-off, focusing on the real U.S. Marshal and the first black deputy marshal west of the Mississippi, and a prequel spin-off later titled 1923 starring Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford.
the original Yellowstone is sure to move to Paramount+ at some point, but until then fans can still eat it. They can also catch up a bit before the series returns for Season 5 in the fall. Yellowstone Season 5 is set to premiere Sunday, Nov. 13 at 8 p.m. ET. Costner spoke to PopCulture and other outlets on the Paramount’s New York red carpet from the get-go, setting the stage for raising the bar for the upcoming season.
“I feel like the foot is still on the gas pedal, so it holds up like the first four seasons, so I was really happy with that,” Costner said. “I think the writing really stays at a lever that’s important.” He teased his character’s political ambitions in future seasons and how well casting has picked up despite a two-year gap between production on seasons 4 and 5.
“There’s so much that’s familiar and the writing picks up where we left off, so it didn’t take long to go back and figure it out,” Costner added. “But there’s work we have to do. And we’re all proud of the first four seasons, so we have to keep going, as long as we choose to.” Yellowstone can be streamed on Peacock in the US and Paramount+ elsewhere. The show will return to Paramount Network in November.
