In between the barbecue and the fireworks, you can spend your Fourth of July weekend with Yellowstone, as Paramount Network is is airing all 39 episodes of the TV western over the holiday weekend, July 2-4. This is a great chance to catch up with Yellowstone season 1-4 before Yellowstone season 5 premieres in November.

The Yellowstone Fourth of July weekend marathon begins on Saturday, July 2, at 11 am ET/PT. While Yellowstone will take up most of the day on Paramount Network, you will get a few breaks in the early hours of the morning and also on Sunday and Monday. Here is a breakdown of the schedule:

Watch Yellowstone marathon

  • July 2: 11 am - 1:30 am ET/PT
  • July 3: 11 am - 1 am ET/PT
  • July 4: 11 am - 11:30 pm ET/PT

Obviously watching 39 episodes, live, on the Paramount Network is a bit of a commitment, especially on a holiday weekend. So, if sitting down to watch the whole thing episode by episode sounds a bit too much like hard work, recording the marathon is always an option. Or, alternatively, if you have the Peacock streaming service you can always catch up at a more leisurely pace.

If you want to watch any (or all) of the episodes live, you need to be sure to have a pay-TV cable service that carries Paramount Network, or a live TV streaming service that does, like FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV and YouTube TV.

About Yellowstone

Yellowstone is part of the Taylor Sheridan "universe". It's a neo-western that follows the Dutton family, who own one of the largest cattle ranches not just in Montana but the entire country. However, they are besieged by enemies on all sides that want to take the land from them. The series stars Kevin Costner as patriarch John Dutton, Kelly Reilly (Britannia, True Detective), Wes Bentley (Interstellar) and Luke Grimes (Fifty Shades trilogy) as his children, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White and Gil Birmingham.

The show has slowly built up its audience to the point where its most recent season (season 4) had episodes that delivered some of the highest ratings of any cable show in 2021. That audience is likely to grow even further when Paramount Plus launches in the UK next month. Anticipation is high for Yellowstone season 5, premiering November 13, and the show’s popularity also helped a prequel series following a previous generation of the Duttons, 1883, set records for the Paramount Plus streaming service, with another prequel, 1923, also on the way this year.
