There was really no doubt that Paramount would announce Yellowstone Season 5. The show was the top-rated cable network television show in 2021 and is presently the highest-rated cable network television show, with spinoff shows 1883 and the upcoming 6666.

It wouldn't be the first time we've seen family feuding among Montana's billionaires, and there's plenty of angst to go around regardless of who sits at the dinner table.

It should make for a tense and dramatic Yellowstone Season 5, but let's speculate on who might be the most dangerous figure next season, and where the creative team's hints might lead us.

Yellowstone Season 5 Characters to Watch Out For

Here are the characters who trigger so much tension:

Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley)

Jamie's character has had a lot of expectations placed on him. Granted, he is not without sin, and many of his actions have resulted in more being piled upon him, but it has long looked like his character is supposed to play a significant role in Yellowstone Season 5.

Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser)

Many true fans of the show could have a hard time believing this threat. Rip is the epitome of loyalty and is a fan favorite in practically every way. He owes John his life, he's married to the sole daughter of the Duttons, and he's spent his entire life on the Yellowstone with a strong sense of responsibility, so why would he pose a threat to the Duttons?

Fans must trust that the best barbarism is still to come, as much as we have enjoyed every minute of Rip's sheer cowboy-barbarity in his duties.

Summer Higgins (Piper Parabo)

Summer has already shown to be a thorn in the Dutton family's side. She's been the only force so far to sever John's (Kevin Costner) and Beth's (Kelly Reilly) indelible father-daughter link, but actually, she's mostly been a nuisance; she's only acted as a reminder to Beth that her father is, in reality, a red-blooded male.

Beth appears to have exacted her vengeance on the eco-activist by arranging for Summer to be arrested, which is what triggered John and caused the rift in the first place. Therein lies the threat, which will most likely be realized during Yellowstone Season 5.

Caroline Warner (Jackie Weaver)

Perhaps Beth's demise will not be brought about by John. Maybe it'll be Market Equities's diminutive but equally ruthless CEO? Audiences have watched a clown-car full of corporate stooges arrive and depart as villains to the Duttons' existence, but one of them must eventually get the better of the family.

Bill Ramsey (Rob Kirkland)

In an interview with Den of Geek, Kirkland revealed that some of these predictions aren't far off from what he knows will happen in Yellowstone Season 5, including the role his newly appointed Sheriff will play in the Duttons' world. Or possibly, what was once the Duttons' world.

Kirkland has swiftly become one of Taylor Sheridan's most trusted members of his cabal of outstanding performers, which implies Ramsey will play a significant role in the upcoming season.

Yellowstone Season 5 Release Date

Yellowstone Season 5 is not currently filming, but according to Sheridan, filming will begin in May 2022.

We were hoping for a Yellowstone Season 5 launch this summer, but filming isn't planned to begin until May, so we'll have to wait a little longer.
