Yellowstone season 5 has concluded its midseason finale, leaving fans impatiently awaiting more episodes. While it will be some time before fans can catch up with the Duttons, Luke Grimes has entered the discussion over the show’s latest episode.
Following the announcement that the Paramount Network drama will return in the summer, the actor rushed to Instagram to express his gratitude to those who have consistently tuned in. He thanked his fans for their support of his work by posting a photo of himself dressed as his character Kayce Dutton. Furthermore, he imparted a secret that only people with acute hearing would have picked up on.
“Thank you for tuning in, and thanks to @yellowstone for including my song in last night’s show.” “Means everything,” he wrote on January 2 in reference to his single “No Horse to Ride.”
Yellowstone followers reacted quickly after Luke shared the photo on social media. While there were numerous reactions to his major music news, many were enraged by how long it will take to see him back on-screen.
I’m not looking forward to having to wait so long! But I enjoyed the last seven episodes!” one user bemoaned on Instagram. “I’m not sure I can wait until summer for the new episodes!” said another enthusiast. “Dude, it’s midsummer, what’s up with that?” That being said, I LOVE THE SHOW!” remarked another person.
His unexpected Instagram post comes as Yellowstone continues to soar. According to Entertainment Weekly, the season 5 premiere received the greatest ratings with 12.1 million people in November 2022. Season 5 is also the show’s longest season yet, with 14 episodes rather than the previous seasons’ usual of 10.
No one knows what to expect when Yellowstone returns in the summer. Fortunately, the episode announcement was accompanied with a teaser trailer, letting fans know that fan favorites (such as Kevin Costner’s John Dutton) will be returning shortly.
While fans wait for the show’s return, Luke has much in store for them. The country singer is presently putting the finishing touches on his debut record. In addition, he’ll be performing at the Stagecoach music festival in late April, on the same day as his co-star Lainey Wilson.
Hopefully, this will make the wait a little less painful.
