How to watch: Paramount Network; trailer
Why to watch: The highest rated show on cable for two straight seasons, Yellowstone is the television phenomenon that somehow isn't more talked about. It's not for lack of ratings - at 11mm+ viewers, Yellowstone's season 4 finale even surpassed Game of Thrones' heavily anticipated pop culture juggernaut of a series finale. The crown jewel for burgeoning Paramount Network, Yellowstone features a talented cast of Kevin Costner, Cole Hauser, Kelly Reilly, Luke Grimes, Kelsey Asbille and Wes Bentley, among others. But the real star is series creator Taylor Sheridan, the former actor turned in-demand screenwriter of such taut, precisely written drama-thrillers as Sicario, Wind River and Hell or High Water. Sheridan elevates Yellowstone to must-see TV territory, and season 5 promises to be a banger.
