Yellowstone‘s most recent finale may have left the fate of a number of cast members up in the air, but there is good news for fans—Season 4 has already been ordered by the Paramount Network. In fact, filming has already begun on the new season, meaning the show should be able to make its usual release date. The finale of the show also set up a number of major plot points for the next season of Yellowstone.
Release Date Of Yellowstone Season 3
With Season 3 just concluding on Paramount Network, official release dates for Season 4 are a while away. At the same time, shooting and production has begun despite the pandemic so there’s a good chance we’ll see the Duttons this time next year in 2021.
Who is in the cast of Yellowstone Season 4?
The bigger question is who will not be in the cast when the show returns (SPOILERS FOR THE SEASON 3 FINALE AHEAD).
In the current season finale, both John Dutton (played by Kevin Costner) and Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) were close to death from gunshots and a bomb respectively, meaning both may have been seen for the last time.
Though it seems unlikely that the show will be losing its biggest star in the form of double Oscar-winner Kevin Costner, the character took a lot of lead in the finale, so it might take a miracle for the Dutton patriarch to survive.
Smith’s Instagram seems to confirm that Lloyd Pierce will be back, and he is likely to be joined by a number of other key cast members. In an Esquire interview, for example, Rip actor Cole Hauser teased his character’s return. Asked whether the character will get revenge on his enemies in Yellowstone Season 4, Hauser said: “You’ll find out. That’s something I’m not going to give ya. Soon enough.”
Also expected to return for Season 4 are actors like Wes Bentley (who plays Jamie Dutton), Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes), and Thomas Rainwater (Gil Birmingham).
Plot Of Yellowstone Season 3
Season 4 of ‘Yellowstone’ will continue the story forward from the events of Season 3.
The Paramount show tells the gritty story of a Montana family that finds itself and its generational land under threat from enemies. From land developers to builders to the Native American Reservation, everyone wants a piece (or all) of Yellowstone to themselves. But the Dutton patriarch John will do anything and everything to keep that from happening.
