“12 miles to the @yellowstone ranch…” captions the young Yellowstone star on his official Instagram. Within, we see a simple-yet-stunning photograph of Montana as the actor counts down to Season 4’s November 7 premiere. Little himself, however, is not responsible for the shot. Like a good chap, he gives credit where credit is due to a “C. Kidd”:
“So beautiful. Great eye!” replies Yellowstone fan Judie C. to the young star’s painting-like post. Fellow follower Jennifer C. calls Little a “Tough kid!” after, presumably referring to his rough & tumble teenager, Carter, whom we’ll meet in Season 4.
Indeed, interest is high for Finn Little‘s debut as Carter, who we’ll presumably meet during the two-episode premiere November 7. We know just enough about his teenage rapscallion to be wildly intrigued, with more surely to come.
If you’re catching up, Yellowstone Season 4 sees Carter enter as a deeply troubled teenager in need of a home. Early reports describe him in the same vein as young Rip Wheeler (Kyle Red Silverstein) whom John Dutton took in as a teenager.
The one tidbit that has fans reeling, however, is that Carter is to be mentored on the ranch by Kelly Reilly’s Beth Dutton. How’s that for a bombshell?
Beth to ‘Duttonize’ Carter in ‘Yellowstone’ Season 4
Perhaps the most pressing question this raises is: Will this pseudo-adoption mean Beth will finally get her chance at a form of motherhood? And is such a thing going to be beneficial for Beth or Carter? Not to mention Rip! How in the world will he fit into all of this? The man has said he doesn’t even like dogs, let alone kids…. The former being the one sin we can’t forgive Rip Wheeler for.
As it stands, we’re set to find out more about Carter and his role very soon. In the meantime, however, we’re still settling for updates via Instagram. Which, thankfully, Little has done a great job with via his own personal countdown.
“TBT: On this day last year… Sure miss the open spaces of Montana,” Little also posted to Instagram a few weeks back. As his own gorgeous photo shows, few places are as breathtaking as the expanses of Montana. It’s something Yellowstone showcases exceptionally well, and that the young actor has become a natural at capturing. Check out that photo for yourself right here.
By the time Season 4 gets rolling, though, we have a feeling Finn Little’s Carter will have far grittier things to show us about growing up on the Yellowstone. Yee haw!
