Yellowstone season 5 spoilers: Be prepared for a lot of flashbacks!

The greater Yellowstone universe likes to cover a lot in terms of time periods — that much is abundantly clear at the moment

We’ve seen flashbacks here and there for John, and we’ve got a whole origin story for the ranch at this point in 1883

This is without even mentioning the upcoming 1932, which should give us a sense of how the place made it through the Great Depression

Well, for the upcoming Yellowstone season 5 we are venturing back to the past again … at least to another point in the life of John Dutton

According to a new report from TVLine, you are going to be seeing Josh Lucas, Kylie Rogers and Kyle Red Silverstein back as younger versions of John, Beth and Rip

So why venture back to the past at this point? That’s the real mystery, as there’s something important back there that impacts the present

It could be tied to a character we haven’t met yet, or a newfound challenge that quickly presents itself
