The news comes ahead of the Season 2 premiere of the drama series, which airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET on the Viacom-owned cable channel. Season 3 will consist of 10 episodes, as will Season 2.
The drama series stars Kevin Costner along with Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, Danny Huston and Gil Birmingham. It chronicles the lives of the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Costner), who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States.

“Yellowstone” was co-created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson. Sheridan, John and Art Linson, and Costner executive produce along with David C. Glasser and Bob Yari. It is co-produced by Paramount Television and 101 Studios. The series has proven to be an undisputed hit for Paramount Network, averaging 5.1 million viewers across platforms during its first season.
