Kevin Costner elected governor in 'Yellowstone' S5 trailer
Paramount released the first full-length trailer for Season 5 of its contemporary western, Yellowstone, on Thursday.
The cattle ranch drama stars Kevin Costner, Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Forrie Smith, Denim Richards, Ian Bohen, Finn Little, Ryan Bingham, Gil Birmingham, Mo Brings Plenty, Wendy Moniz, Jen Landon and Kathryn Kelly.
It will kick off its new season with a 2-hour premiere Nov. 13.
Thursday's 90-second preview shows John Dutton (Costner) being sworn in as the governor of the state of Montana, firing existing staff, appointing his hot-tempered daughter Beth (Reilly) as his chief of staff and declaring that he loves Montana, but everything he does is for his family.
"Ruin them, starting with her," wealthy land developer Caroline Warner (Jacki Weaver) says of the Duttons, singling out Beth.
Caroline later screams, "This [expletive] family!" before throwing a bottle of liquor against a window.

Grammy-winning rapper Coolio dead at 59
Grammy-winning rapper Artis Leon Ivey Jr. -- who performed under the name Coolio -- has died at the age of 59.
Ivery is best known for his iconic song, "Gangsta's Paradise," which appeared on the soundtrack of the 1995 Michelle Pfeiffer film, Dangerous Minds.
Weird Al Yankovic also famously parodied the song as "Amish Paradise."
Ivery's manager Jarez Posey confirmed his Wednesday death to Deadline and TMZ, saying the hip-hop star was found unresponsive in the bathroom of a friend's house.
Cardiac arrest is suspected, but an autopsy will be conducted to determine the official cause of his death.
Ivery's other hits include "Fantastic Voyage," "1,2,3,4 (Sumpin' New)," "It's All the Way Live (Now)" and "C U When U Get There."
The artist also wrote and performed "Aw, Here It Goes," the theme song for Kenan & Kel, a sitcom starring Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell.
He performed in South America and Europe over the summer and took the stage at a concert in Chicago last week.
Ivery also appeared on the reality shows Coolio's Rules, Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, Wife Swap and Big Brother. He was the author of the cookbook, Cookin' with Coolio: 5 Star Meals at a 1 Star Price, too.
"This is sad news. I witness first hand this man's grind to the top of the industry. Rest In Peace @Coolio," rapper Ice Cube posted on Twitter.
"Heartbroken to hear of the passing of the gifted artist @coolio," Pfeiffer wrote on Instagram.
"A life cut entirely too short. As some of you may know I was lucky enough to work with him on Dangerous Minds in 1995. He won a Grammy for his brilliant song on the soundtrack -- which I think was the reason our film saw so much success. I remember him being nothing but gracious. 30 years later I still get chills when I hear the song. Sending love and light to his family. Rest in Power, Artis Leon Ivey Jr."
"Peaceful Journey Brother. #Coolio," said musician and filmmaker Questlove.
"Oh man!!! RIP Coolio! Loved your music....too soon," said Oscar-winning actress Viola Davis.
"I am absolutely stunned," tweeted actor Lou Diamond Phillips. "Coolio was a friend and one of the warmest, funniest people I've ever met. We spent an amazing time together making Red Water in Capetown and we loved going head to head in the kitchen. He was one of a kind. Epic, Legendary and I'll miss him.
"Rest In Peace Coolio! A true legend and nice man. My heart goes out to your family and friends. So glad we got to hang and have some laughs," said comedian Rob Schneider.
