Today, Paramount Network released the official trailer for Yellowstone season two, which premieres Wednesday, June 19 at 10 p.m., ET/PT. The full-length, action-packed trailer picks up with the Dutton family still fighting for their ranch and foreshadows new dangers that threaten to upend their home and their lives. The first season averaged 5.1 million total viewers per episode, making it 2018’s most-watched new cable series and ranking second across all cable TV series for the year.
Starring world-renowned actor and Oscar®-winner Kevin Costner, Yellowstone is co-created by critically-acclaimed, Oscar®-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Wind River, Hell or High Water and Sicario), and John Linson. The impressive cast list for Yellowstone also includes Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White and Gil Birmingham.
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 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.
Yellowstone, Paramount Network’s epic scripted dramatic series, stars Costner as John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous 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.
The Paramount Network original drama is co-produced and co-financed by 101 Studios. Executive producers for Yellowstone are John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner and David C. Glasser.
