‘Yellowstone’ Season 4 Launched With a Bang
Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched Season 4 yet and want to find out for yourself what happened, read no further.
In last week’s two-hour season premiere, we saw the Season 3 cliffhanger resolved. John Dutton (Kevin Costner) barely survived multiple gunshot wounds, enduring a long hospital ordeal. Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) walked out of her bombed-out office covered with burns. Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes), of course, mowed down the intruders at his office and took off to kill his father’s attackers.
Plenty of unanswered questions remain. We don’t know who was pulling the strings behind the attacks. But thanks to Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser), Market Equities villain Roarke (Josh Holloway) is now out of the picture. And a cute new wannabe cowboy has joined the Dutton Ranch: Carter (Finn Little), who will test what Beth and Rip are made of.
All told, it promises to be a suspenseful and action-packed season. The best one yet? Maybe. Listen up. We’ll keep you posted.
Taylor Sheridan Envisions Six Seasons, So Enjoy It While It Lasts
“Yellowstone” is spawning spinoff after spinoff right now, so it may seem like series co-creator Taylor Sheridan’s Dutton Ranch will last forever. But that’s not what Sheridan has in mind. In an interview last year with Deadline, Sheridan said he can see “Yellowstone” lasting for about six seasons.
“I know how the series ends, and you have to move in a straight line toward that end,” Sheridan said. “I don’t see this as a procedural show. So, it’s not something that we could extend indefinitely. I don’t think anyone would want to do that; you’d cheapen the product.”
Luckily for “Yellowstone” fans, Sheridan is not looking to make a tragedy. He says the show will end “on an upswing.” But with three seasons left to go, there’s a lot of room for drama in the meantime.
You can catch “Yellowstone” Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on the Paramount Network. And don’t miss the next Outsider podcast following it up.
