Just four episodes into its freshman run, Paramount Network has announced that Yellowstone has been picked up for a second season. The good news reflects a solid start to the new drama, which become the cable network's most-watched original scripted series after averaging 2.8 million viewers (live+same day) for its 2-hour premiere.

Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, who are owners of a Montana ranch that is the largest of its kind in America. Led by patriarch John, the Duttons constantly contend with attacks from land developers, conflicts with the country's first national park, and tense encounters with a neighboring Indian reservation. But through it all, they relentlessly fight to keep their land in the family.

10 episodes have been ordered for Season 2 of Yellowstone, which will return in 2019.
