Will Jimmy Be In Yellowstone Season 5?

Yellowstone fans have eagerly anticipated the fifth season since the fourth season ended in August 2020. One question on everyone’s mind is, Will Jimmy Be In Yellowstone Season 5?

It’s always exciting to hear about a new season of a beloved TV show. If you’re familiar with the show, then you know Jimmy is a ranch hand for the Dutton family.

He’s an integral part of the show, and his storyline fills the show with exciting plot twists and turns. Fans have been rooting for him since he first appeared in Season 1.

Jefferson White (Jimmy) has been a light in a somewhat dark place. From the moment he stepped foot on the ranch after losing his grandpa.

He tried exacting his revenge on the culprits to the numerous times he’s had his a** handed to him.

However one thing remains true, he never gives up, no matter what, thus making him one of our favorites.

Season 4 Recap 

Season 4 had a lot going on. From Beth handling her business literally and figuratively to John, Kacey, and Rip all facing enemies in their front yards.

In addition, Jimmy too finds himself at square one once again. Jimmy fails to keep his promise to John about not getting on a horse again, and after some convincing from Mia, he gets back on his horse and, in turn, falls.

Season 4 opens with him and John both in the hospital, him recuperating from his fall and John from his gunshot wounds.

After he’s gotten out of the hospital, he’s sent to Texas. If they can’t make a cowboy out of him, then no one can, is the sentiment behind John’s thinking.

In Texas, his start is bumpy, especially with Emily, the vet at the ranch. However, he can salvage the money by bringing his comedy. 

Is Jimmy In Season 5?

Several occurrences have led fans to think that season 4 is the last season we would see Jimmy. One of those instances is when the official Yellowstone trailer dropped, and one particular face seemed to be missing.

That of Jefferson White which is a little to go on. However, as he is one of the prominent cast members and his story arc was a big part of season 4, this was shocking when he couldn’t be spotted in the trailer.

The second occurrence while most of the cast members took to their socials to give fans behind-the-scenes photos from the show.

Jefferson White was quiet, and some fans took this to mean he wouldn’t be in the upcoming season. However, Emily, played by Kathryn Kelly, was promoted to series regular.

Would this mean that Jimmy’s future would be short-lived, or would we see him only in flashbacks? 

The fate of Jimmy’s storyline is still uncertain, but some clues suggest that he may be back for another season.

When speaking to TVline, he said that although he has chosen his new life in Texas with Emily, there’s undoubtedly more Jimmy for fans. Whether that’s in Montana or Texas, we will have to wait and see. 

The good news is that it looks like Jimmy will be back for Yellowstone Season 5. Actor Jefferson White, who portrays Jimmy, has confirmed that he will return for another show season.

In addition, he has shared some exciting details about what fans can expect from his character in the upcoming season.

What Can We Expect To See From Jimmy In Season 5

Jimmy And Emily 

One of the best parts of season 4 was seeing the romance between Jimmy and Emily blossom. From their first encounter, Jimmy didn’t have to wear a mask, unlike in previous relationships.

He developed from the young bronc rider who was unsure of himself into a confident bonafide cowboy ready to take on Texas and Yellowstone.

While it was hard for Mia to see them together once they returned to Texas, it was undoubtedly the best choice. Now that Emily and Jimmy are engaged, a wedding is pretty close.

While Mia seemed to be the only thing that would probably stand in their way, she is off on her journey. We can look forward to seeing a married Jimmy either in the finale or in the middle of the season. Either way, we cannot wait.

Jimmy At The 6666 Ranch 

With Jimmy deciding to go to Texas with Emily to begin their new life, it seems his life at Yellowstone is done. However, we can only hope that he will be back regularly to check on his original family. 

Jefferson White On Jimmy’s Future 

Jefferson White has done an incredible job of portraying Jimmy onscreen. At the end of season 4, Jimmy can decide for himself for the first time in his life, and life at Yellowstone has only proven to be kind to its residents after a couple of beatings. 

When speaking to the press, Jefferson White said on the gift that John Dutton gave Jimmy, the ability to make a decision. For once in his life, he’s no longer just a soldier.

While incredible, this means that if things don’t pan out, he’ll have no one to blame but himself, leaving Jefferson White nervous about his future. 

White recently told Entertainment Weekly that he expects Season 5 of Yellowstone to be “bigger than ever.” He also teased that there will be some “major surprises” for Jimmy in the upcoming season.

We can only speculate as to what those surprises might be, but it’s safe to say that viewers are in for an exciting ride!

White also revealed that he believes Jimmy will have a more significant role in the storyline this season. He said he’s “really excited to dive into more of Jimmy’s backstory and for viewers to learn more about him.”

In addition, he shared that more surprises will be related to his character in the upcoming season.

Is Jefferson White Involved In Other Projects?

In February 2021, Taylor Sheridan revealed that he had a new Yellowstone spinoff in the works set in the Texas historic 6666 ranches, a ranch in west Texas where the rule of law and nature merge, inspired by the real-life legendary land.

The ranch is synonymous with raising the finest horses and livestock and also creates world-class cowboys, which is why John sent Jimmy in the first place.

Having Jimmy go back to Texas solidified that his new home would be the Four Sixes Ranch.

While they may now be a part of the Big Sky country, there are no casting announcements to say that Jefferson White will be a regular cast member of the new show.

For fans who can’t wait for the new season to drop and can’t get enough of Jefferson White, you can catch him on the official Yellowstone podcast. He’s one of the hosts, and new episodes are released every week on Thursdays. 

When Is The Yellowstone Season 5 Premiere?

Yellowstone season 5 has already premiered in the US on the Peacock network. In the UK, it’s available to be watched on paramount+.

It airs at 8 pm ET/PT on Sundays on the Paramount Network.

Is Jimmy In Yellowstone A Real Cowboy 

When jimmy first joins the Dutton ranch, he has no prior experience in ranch life, but he quickly takes to it.

With the help of Rip, Jimmy learns how to be a cowboy and appreciates the lifestyle. He even begins to love the work and can prove his worth on the ranch. 

While Jimmy may not have been a real cowboy before joining Yellowstone, he certainly has become one after being around the Dutton family and his time at the 6666 ranches.

So while he may not be a real-life cowboy, Jimmy has undoubtedly become one in Yellowstone!

In real life, Jefferson White is also not a real-life cowboy. Growing up in the city, he had no experience with ranch life, and the time he spent at cowboy camp with the other cast members helped with his role.


Jimmy is a central character in the show, and we can look forward to more of his story this season. Of course, fans can expect plenty of action in the upcoming season of Yellowstone.

In addition, we can expect more drama, suspense, and tense moments as the Dutton family continues to grapple with the various issues that come their way.

While it’s still too early to know what will happen in season 5 of Yellowstone, one thing is sure: Jimmy will be back! Viewers can look forward to seeing him return for another exciting season of the show.

With all the surprises and plot twists that are sure to come our way, it will be an incredible ride!

So if you’re a fan of Yellowstone, make sure you tune in when Season 5 arrives. There’s sure to be plenty of excitement in store, and we can’t wait to see what happens with Jimmy!
