There is a single question that has been on the minds of practically every “Yellowstone” fan since the end of season three.

“What happens to the Dutton family?”

The third season did not end well for the powerful Montana cattle ranching family. Now, the status of three Duttons is very much up in the air. Here is a quick refresher on the events of the third season finale.

Three members of Dutton family come under attack as the final seconds of the third season tick away. John Dutton is shot several times on the side of the road as he helps a stranded family. John’s son, Kayce Dutton, is also attacked by unknown gunmen but he is able to take cover behind a desk in his office. John’s daughter, Beth Dutton, receives a mysterious package at her workplace that turns out to be a bomb. The bomb detonates when her assistant opens the package with a massive blast. Beth is mere feet from the bomb when it goes off. The status of these three characters is currently up in the air as a new “Yellowstone” season approaches.

Another question fans are asking themselves is just how in the world has the “Yellowstone” team kept the Duttons’ fate under wraps. In a world dominated by technology and social media, it’s nearly impossible to prevent spoilers from leaking out. Somehow — “Yellowstone” has figured out the secret to keeping storylines secret. How the heck they’re doing it is what fans of the show are asking themselves.

With the season four premiere just a few days away, it seems “Yellowstone” is about to do the unthinkable when it comes to show business — keeping a big secret. Our hats go off to them for pulling off what is practically a miracle.

‘Yellowstone’ Thrives at Holding Onto Suspense

What is the secret to keeping a secret?

We may never know the answer to this question but it is certainly adding to the suspense of the upcoming season four premiere.

Suspense is what “Yellowstone” is all about and the third season cliffhanger was a stroke of brilliance. Filming for the new season wrapped up late last year. That means the show has prevented the public from figuring out its biggest secret for more than a year. It’s just so impressive.

The premiere of the fourth season of “Yellowstone” will be one of the biggest television events of the year. Not knowing the outcome of the third season finale has led to a lot of speculation of what may be in store for the Duttons.

The show’s secrets are about to be revealed in a big way with the premiere just a few days away. The two-hour debut of the fourth season is set for this Sunday evening.
