Yellowstone is much more than just a boring old life-changing national park monument to the breathtaking majesty of nature…it’s also a TV show! And it is about to get a fourth season.
For three seasons now Yellowstone has staked its claim to telling exciting stories of family drama in a rural setting for Paramount Network. Though Paramount might not necessarily be a heavy-hitter, Yellowstone absolutely is. Yellowstone takes in around 5 million viewers per episode, which is superb for any cable entity – let alone one on a lesser-known network. The show stars Kevin Costner as the patriarch of the Dutton family – the owners of the largest ranch in the United States.
Yellowstone season 3 wrapped up its 10-episode run on August 23, 2020. Now the wait begins for Yellowstone season 4. And make no mistake: there will be a Yellowstone season 4. Paramount Network quietly renewed the show for a fourth season back in February of 2020 (heretofore known as “The Before Times”). Not only that, but the show has begun filming already!
Here is everything we know about Yellowstone season 4.
Yellowstone Season 4 Release Date
Yellowstone is one of the most remarkably consistent series on television in terms of release dates. The show’s three seasons have premiered on June 20, June 19, and June 21. Yes, that’s a Friday, a Tuesday, and a Sunday. Now, given the show’s level of success it seems as though Paramount Network feels pretty confident about the prestige Sunday night timeslot. If everything breaks the show and Paramount’s way, we could expect to see Yellowstone season 4 on June 20, 2021.
Of course, scheduling is a tricky thing these days given the coronavirus pandemic and necessary health and safety guidelines. Thankfully for Yellowstone fans, the show’s rural setting has filming advantages when it comes to social distancing. Showrunner Taylor Sheridan told Deadline that the show is able to begin shooting in Montana in August.
Yellowstone Season 4 Cast
In addition to Kevin Coster as John Dutton, the rest of the Dutton family cast is filled out by Luke Grimes (Kayce Dutton), Kelly Reilly (Beth Dutton), Wes Bentley (Jamie Dutton), and Kelsey Asbille (Monica Dutton). Cole Hauser (Rip Wheeler), Jefferson White (Jimmy Hurdstrom), and Gil Birmingham (Chief Thomas Rainwater) make up the rest of the main cast. Josh Holloway (Lost, Colony) played Roarke Carter in season 3. No additional castings have yet been announced for season 4.
Stay tuned for more Yellowstone season 4 news as it arrives. Seasons 1 and 2 of the show are currently available to stream on NBCUNiversal’s Peacock.
