How to watch Yellowstone from the beginning

With four seasons of Yellowstone having already been aired in full, those wanting to start the show from the beginning can do so by streaming them on Paramount+, in both the US and the UK. 

While you can sign up for Paramount+ itself, you also get access to the streaming service with an Amazon Prime account, meaning you'll get access to the movies and shows on Prime Video as well as all the perks of Prime. 

Right now, you can snap up a seven-day free trial of Amazon Prime to give you a head start on cracking on with the first season of Yellowstone. 

Alternatively, UK viewers can purchase the first two seasons of Yellowstone on Amazon Prime for £7.99.

Meanwhile, the fifth season of Yellowstone has been aired up to the eighth episode, with fans being left hanging over the arrival of the ninth episode.

Why is episode nine of Yellowstone not on Paramount+?

After the eighth episode of Yellowstone season 5 aired on Paramount+ on Sunday January 1st, viewers were raring for the ninth episode to drop the following week. 

However, fans were left confused when the next instalment of the show didn't arrive on January 8th. 

Episode 9 of Yellowstone season 5 hasn't landed yet due to a mid-season break, with the eighth episode airing as the mid-season finale. 

It is expected that the season 5 hiatus could last a fair few months, as Yellowstone's Summer Higgins star Piper Perabo revealed that the next episode is yet to even be filmed.

She told TV Insider, "There's a lot coming. Things are on the move.

"I can't wait to get back to the back half just because I want to know what happens.

"I personally only know what happens up to the midseason finale up to that last second, and I don't know what happens when we come back."
