Will There be a Yellowstone Season 4?

Paramount’s contemporary ranching drama, ‘Yellowstone’ follows the lives of the powerful but complicated, dysfunctional clan who lives on the Dutton Ranch. Boasting a solid cast and spectacular backdrops, the series became the most-watched original scripted title when it first premiered on the network. And over the three seasons that have aired across the years, its popularity has remained constant. Now, with the show’s third installment having reached an eventful end, fans are curious to know if and when they will get to see the fourth season. Well, let’s get started.

Yellowstone Season 4 Release Date:

‘Yellowstone’ Season 3 premiered on June 21, 2020, on Paramount Network. It ended with its 10th episode on August 23, 2020. Ahead of the third-season debut, the show was renewed for its fourth edition in February 2020. The news does not come as a surprise since the drama managed to become one of the breakout hits for Paramount.

Now, as far as the release date is concerned, you would be happy to know that the filming schedule is on track. The show’s creators, Taylor Sheridan and John Linson, confirmed the news in a statement to Deadline: “We’re supposed to start mid-August, and we’re putting that together as best we can. I’m fortunate that this show shoots on a ranch in Montana. We’re going to shoot exclusively there this year, or in and around it.”

Staying true to these words, Forrie J. Smith affirmed on his Instagram handle that season 4 had started filming on August 21, 2020.


Since things are moving according to the regular schedule, in spite of production shutdown concerns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we expect the series to return to its original, annual summer slot. In all probability, ‘Yellowstone’ Season 4 should release in June 2021.

Yellowstone Season 4 Cast: Who Can be it?

In season 4, the entire ‘Yellowstone’ cast is expected to make a comeback. We have Kevin Costner as John (the Dutton family patriarch), Luke Grimes as Kayce (the youngest Dutton son), Kelly Reilly as Beth (John’s daughter), Wes Bentley as Jamie (another son from the Dutton clan), Cole Hauser as Rip Wheeler (John’s right-hand man and a foreman at the ranch), Kelsey Asbille as Monica (Kayce’s wife), Brecken Merrill as Tate (Kayce and Monica’s son), Jefferson White as Jimmy (another ranch hand), Danny Huston as Dan, Gil Birmingham as Chief Thomas Rainwater, Ian Bohen as Ryan, Denim Richards as Colby, and Forrie J. Smith as Lloyd Pierce.

Yellowstone Season 4 Plot: What Can it be About?

Season 3 sees some dramatic developments in the lives of the Duttons. Jamie finally meets his real biological father, Garrett Randall. Garrett confesses to killing Jamie’s mother as she was a drug addict. In the finale, called ‘The World Is Purple’, Jamie digs more into his heritage while Beth gives us more insights into her complicated relationship with Rip. Season 4 will pick up the story from here and continue to dive deeper into the dynamics between the Dutton clan members. The creators have hinted that they are doing some things with the plot, which have never been shown on tv till date. The upcoming installment is expected to delve further into the ‘don’t mess with the Duttons’ attitude.
