Yellowstone star Brecken Merrill AKA Tate Dutton was over the moon after the Seahawks edged out the Rams today. The 14-year-old actor raced to his Instagram account to celebrate the 27 to 23 win. The image the rising star posted shows him with his back to the camera. Wearing his DK Metcalf jersey, the young actor does the classic He-man flex as he looks down on the SoFi Stadium. “Yeeesssssss! Let’s go Hawks!!!”, Merrill captioned the post.

Brecken Merrill picked a good game to check out as a Seahawks fan. The Rams went into their game against the Seahawks with 5 straight losses. Of course, this makes 6 game losing streak for the beleaguered Rams. Following their last victory, the Seattle Seahawks will host the Carolina Panthers next week in hopes of starting a winning streak.

Brecken Merrill plays Tate Dutton in Yellowstone. Tate is the son of Kayce Dutton, a horseman and ranch hand, and Monica Dutton, a schoolteacher, and professor. His grandfather, John Dutton, owns the Yellowstone Ranch – the largest ranch in the contiguous United States. The show has gained an avid fanbase over the years, with viewership rivaling The Walking Dead at its peak. The Dutton family, fronted by John Dutton, is always under attack from those who desire their land. This includes developers, an Indian reservation, and America’s first National Park. The hit show (co-created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson) follows the Duttons as they fight to keep control of their ranch.

Brecken Merrill’s as in the dark as ‘Yellowstone’ fans about upcoming episodes

Outsider spoke with Merrill about the upcoming season, and he revealed that the cast still doesn’t know what will happen. Season five isn’t fully filmed yet, so there are many storylines left to explore. “We’re only halfway done, we go back soon,” the actor explained. Just like viewers only get to see one episode at a time, the cast members don’t know what’s going to happen in future episodes either. Merrill said that he believes they’ll begin shooting again in March, but there’s still a second half of the season left to film.

Merrill discussed the challenges of filming such a large season, with most seasons only having 10 episodes. However, this season has a staggering 14. “It was very chaotic,” Merrill said. “We didn’t know if we were going to have a break, we didn’t know when we were going to be back. So should I go back to school, or should I continue to be online?”

An upcoming spin-off of Yellowstone, 1923, is set to drop later this month. It stars veteran actors Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren as the series leads. This story follows the Dutton family during a time of great hardship, including Western Expansion, Prohibition, and the Great Depression. In Montana, these hardships began a decade earlier than in other parts of the country.
