The show will be returning from its mid-season break in January 2023. The eighth episode of season 5 will premiere on Paramount on Sunday, January 8, 2023, at 8 pm ET / 7 pm CT / 5 pm PT, which means the season is only going on a small hiatus for the holiday season.

Yellowstone Season 5: What Happened So Far?
The ongoing season began with John Dutton being elected as the governor of Montana, which brought a significant political change in the state. The move ruined the plans of Dutton’s enemies, Market Equities, who wanted to construct an airport on the Yellowstone Ranch.
Caroline Warner, furious over the development, decides to take down the Duttons and brings in corporate lawyer Sarah Atwood to carry out the task. The lawyer then starts to target Jamie and tries to influence him. Jamie also gives in and starts sleeping with her, not knowing her true motives.
