About this show
“Yellowstone” stars world-renowned actor and Oscar®-winner Kevin Costner, who serves in the lead role, and is co-created by critically-acclaimed, Oscar®-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (“Hell or High Water” and “Sicario,”) and John Linson.
“Yellowstone” chronicles the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect – the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America’s first national park.
“Yellowstone” returns to the air after its hit first season, in which it was 2018’s most watched new cable series and the most-watched drama series premiere on ad-supported cable television since 2016’s The People vs OJ Simpson. Over the course of the season, the show averaged 5.1 million total viewers (P2+), beating cable hits like American Horror Story (4.8M), Vikings (3.7M), The Alienist (3.5M), Better Call Saul (3.3M) and Westworld (2.7M), among others. During its nine-episode first season, Yellowstone garnered more than 20 million digital views. The show’s fanbase grew throughout the season, with four of the last five episodes hitting series-high ratings in its demographic (P25-54) and season one’s finale outperforming the premiere, with 5.4 million viewers (P2+) tuning in.
