Yellowstone season three ended on a cliffhanger on August 23, this year after airing ten episodes, which began from June 21. The Paramount Network original drama series has already been restored for a fourth installment. Hence, the viewers are not left in much doubt and are only expected to wait for it patiently to return.
In February 2020, three months beforehand of the season 3’s launch, the fourth season was advertised by Paramount Network itself. The ranch drama follows the Dutton’s and other dysfunctional characters, living on the Dutton Ranch. The show possesses a unique set of cast and characters with an impressive background to the show. To find out more about the release date, storyline, cast, and further details, let’s read on.
Yellowstone Season 4 Release Date
Season three of Yellowstone premiered on June 21, 2020, on Paramount Network with ten episodes in total while wrapping it up on August 23, 2020. As we all know, the show is already renewed for season four, the only unanswered question in people’s mind is: when is the premiere? To rest all the speculation, the newest edition will mostly come back in June 2021.
Why? Because Yellowstone and Paramount Network has a history of releasing the show in June every year religiously. Yellowstone’s return date hasn’t been revealed as of now, but if the production schedule is on track, then June 2021 would be its return time. (check: Trinkets season 3.)
Taylor Sheridan and John Linson, the show’s creators, said in an interview, “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.” And soon after, Forrie J. Smith confirmed the on-time schedule by posting a picture on Instagram and has been rigorously doing since.

Yellowstone Season 4 Cast
In the tenth and final episode of season 3, we discovered a bomb blow up in Beth’s office. At the same time, Kayce and John were shot in different scenarios. Are you wondering who survived and who didn’t? Let’s see. The finale on an expected cliffhanger note and that being the case, we don’t know what holds the Dutton’s fate. Nevertheless, Paramount hasn’t reported any death or injuries yet so we think the main characters might return anyhow.
We have Kevin Costner as John Dutton, Luke Grimes as Kayce Dutton, Kelly Reilly as Beth Dutton, Wes Bentley as Jamie Dutton, Cole Hauser as Rip Wheeler, Kelsey Asbille as Monica Long Dutton, Brecken Merrill as Tate Dutton, Jefferson White as Jimmy Hurdstrom, Gil Birmingham as Chief Thomas Rainwater, Denim Richards as Colby, and Forrie J. Smith as Lloyd Pierce.
Yellowstone Season 4 Plot
The story will be picked up where it was left off. The finale encircled Beth describing her on-again-off-again relationship with Rip and gives more insights. On the other hand, Jamie meets his biological father at last (Garrett Randall). The latter admits killing Jamie’s mother because of her drug addiction.
The network has provided no more information, and thus, the plot remains a mystery for now.
