Yellowstone Season 5 production is now underway in Montana. And the Paramount Network has just made some huge casting announcements. Some familiar characters that fans haven't seen in years will return, as will new actors, and two recurring cast members will be upgraded to series regulars.

Yellowstone Season 5 new regulars

After four seasons as a recurring character, Wendy Moniz, who plays Montana governor Lynelle Perry, has been promoted to series regular.


Mo Brings Plenty, who plays Chief Thomas Rainwater's (Gil Birmingham) right-hand man, has been promoted to series regular as well. This is a significant step for the Lakota actor, who was contemplating retirement shortly before landing the role in Taylor Sheridan's neo-western.

“I took the role because I was going to be the sidekick to another Native who was a tribal chairman,” Brings Plenty revealed at the recent 2022 Reservation Economic Summit, per Native News Online.

“And, of course, Kevin Costner being in a project, who wouldn’t? Just before I did take the role, I was contemplating on whether or not I was going to step away from pursuing this anymore,” he added.
