'Yellowstone': Jacki Weaver Plays the Duttons' 'Terrifying' Enemy, Caroline Warner

The hit series (and our beloved four-year-long obsession) Yellowstone is back with its highly anticipated fifth season, and based on what we've seen so far, it looks like plenty of family arguments, romance and drama will be hitting the Dutton Ranch for the foreseeable future. It also means a new cast of characters who'll cross John Dutton, Beth Dutton, Rip Wheeler, and the rest of the crew. While there are some new faces joining in the latest season, many of the favorites we met back in season four are back for more, including Caroline Warner, CEO of Market Equities. Seasoned actor Jacki Weaver is portraying the Dutton family's adversary and is yet again at odds with Beth Dutton over her plans to construct a massive airport on the Yellowstone's land.

Market Equities is the latest adversary to face off against the Duttons in order to take advantage of their massive ranch property, the biggest in the country. Last season we saw Caroline and Beth working together for a brief period of time (Beth working as a double agent), and now Caroline has about had it with Beth, the Dutton family, and anyone else standing in the way of her business goals. Will Beth be able to fully remove Caroline and Market Equities from the equation? It's anyone's guess, but as we've learned over the past four seasons of Yellowstone, you never can see anything coming.

"She's a city slicker walking through fields of cowpats in designer heels and classy tailored suits," Weaver told TV Insider.  "She looks out of place, but she's terrifying. She takes no prisoners, treats everyone badly-and is going to add another dimension to the huge cataclysmic drama that is the Duttons."

Joining Weaver in the previous season were Piper Perabo, who plays Summer Higgins, an environmental activist from Portland who's in Montana to protest industrialized farming, and Kathryn Kelly, who plays Emily, a vet tech who is currently involved with everyone's favorite ranch hand, Jimmy. Finn Little also joined the cast as Carter, a boy reminiscent of a young Rip who quickly forms a relationship with Beth and becomes a new addition to her family with Rip.

If you just can't get enough of the Duttons or Taylor Sheridan's brilliant western sagas, fear not. There are more Yellowstone spinoffs on the way: 1923, a prequel starring Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren, and 6666, a new series that focuses on the Four Sixes Ranch in Texas (and features a few familiar faces from Yellowstone).
