John Dutton becomes Governor of Montana in Yellowstone season 5 trailer

In Yellowstone season 4, the rivals of John Dutton (Kevin Costner) didn’t believe that he had what it took to transition to politics and successfully run for Governor of Montana. But in the first trailer for Yellowstone season 5, John not only takes office, but he also cleans house and fires all of the governor’s previous staff. Unfortunately for John, gaining power in the state means that his enemies have multiplied. And they will come gunning for his family as well.

The first four seasons largely followed the struggles of the Dutton family to hold on to Yellowstone, the largest ranch in the country. Everyone wants a piece of their land, from developers to Native Americans who view it as property stolen from their ancestors centuries ago. But if John thought running for Governor would make things easier for the family, then he was dead wrong. So it’s a good thing that neither John nor his kin ever shies away from a fight.

The best TV shows like Yellowstone

Now in its fifth season, few shows have had the enormous success that Yellowstone has managed. In an era when no one watches the same thing anymore, Yellowstone has managed to command and hold a remarkably large audience. The series, which is in many ways a more updated, gritty, and realistic version of shows like Dallas that aired back in the 1980s, has used consistently sharp writing, a roster of great stars, and plenty of Montana vistas to worm its way into TV fan's hearts all over the country.

If you love Yellowstone and slightly resent the fact that it's only on for a few weeks out of the year, fear not! There are plenty of other great TV shows that have things in common with Yellowstone, and may fill the hole in your heart left by the show's absence when every season ends. Some of these shows have similar creative teams, or are about similar things, or are set in a similar part of the country. Whatever the reason, though, each one of them has a chance of making you miss Yellowstone just a little bit less.
