March 22 (UPI) — Season 2 of Kevin Costner‘s cattle ranch drama Yellowstone is to debut June 19 on the Paramount Network.

“There’s a war going on in this valley. Today’s the day you choose sides,” Costner says in a 15-second preview posted Thursday on Twitter.

A bull then charges at the camera in front of a barn adorned with the titular ranch’s “Y” symbol.

Costner plays John Dutton, the wealthy and powerful, but cancer-stricken patriarch of a family of ranchers who use any means necessary — legal or not — to maintain their business despite pressure from developers, criminals and the U.S. government.

The show was renewed for a 10-episode, second season in July.

Taylor Sheridan returned as the show-runner and writer for the series, which co-stars Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White and Gil Birmingham. The first season wrapped up Aug. 22.
