It's a holiday weekend, so that means it's time for a Yellowstone marathon on Paramount Network. While fans eagerly await the return of Yellowstone season 5, Memorial Day weekend is going to be a chance for them to catch up with every single episode of the series, including the first eight of season 5.
Starting Friday, May 26, through Monday, Mat 29, watch Yellowstone from the very beginning. Here is the schedule for the Paramount Network Yellowstone Memorial Day weekend marathon.
Watch Yellowstone marathon
- Friday, May 26, 4 pm ET/PT to 2 am ET/PT (May 27): Yellowstone season 1 episode 1 to Yellowstone season 1 episode 9
- Saturday, May 27, 9 am ET/PT to 12:05 am ET/PT (May 28): Yellowstone season 2 episode 1 to Yellowstone season 3 episode 4

Obviously that's a lot of TV to commit to. 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, including Yellowstone season 5, which were just added to the streaming service on May 25.
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, Philo TV, Sling TV and YouTube TV.
If you don't have Paramount Network and don't want to put money down to get it, there is a free Yellowstone marathon available, as Pluto TV has a marathon of the western's first three seasons airing May 27-29.
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 also star.
The show has slowly built up its audience to the point where 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, as UK audiences can now watch the entire series in one place on Paramount Plus.
