Less than two weeks until we tune in for the Yellowstone Season 5 premiere! Based on the official trailer, we already know Taylor Sheridan is bringing the heat. Yesterday, fans briefly got to go behind the scenes with some of our favorite cast members revealing some things we should expect from the show’s “wild” fifth season.

“It’s gonna be bloody,” Yellowstone‘s Instagram caption promises. However, there’s so much more to it than that.

As we saw previously, John Dutton (Kevin Costner) has already been voted Montana’s governor. However, the brand new teaser now shows us more of what we can expect from John’s new role. One frame even sees the stoic character at a campaign event.

“Now, John’s playing hardball,” says Wes Bentley, who plays Jamie Dutton. “Whether that’s good or bad, that’s up for debate.”

In addition, Gil Birmingham, who plays Tribal Chairman Thomas Rainwater, shared his character’s latest perspective of John Dutton. “Within the native community, we just can’t figure out what he’s going to be yet. It’s a good thing for John. I don’t know how it’s gonna be for us.”

In Yellowstone‘s past, we saw a lot of what it takes to be a Montana cowboy, honing in on the “grit” exemplified by Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) and Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser). This year, though, with Costner’s character as governor, Beth Dutton actress Kelly Reilly promises that we see a lot more of the “political world” of Montana.

“We get to see a lot more of the political world in Montana,” Reilly said, “and what that means.”

Stepping away from John’s new role, Cole Hauser turned our attention back to the new husband-and-wife couple, Rip and Beth. “It sets it up for a very interesting year with Beth and I.” Additionally, the teaser clip hints how Rip’s relationship with John might change as the longtime cowboy spends significantly less time at the ranch.

Meanwhile, Kayce and Monica (Luke Grimes and Kelsey Asbille) are navigating struggles all their own. They’re preparing to welcome their second child, which will hopefully bring at least a little lightheartedness.

There’s no telling what we can expect from this season! Like everyone else, we are not-so-patiently waiting for November 13 to roll around!
