Fans of the hit Paramount Network series “Yellowstone” have “officially” launched the countdown to the season four premiere. If you are keeping track there at home or at the office or anywhere for that matter — we have 22 days left before the latest season arrives.

For most “Yellowstone” fans, including us here at Outsider, the “unofficial” countdown began as soon as the third season ended. It isn’t the most pleasant memory for fans of the show but think back to all the “Yellowstone” drama earlier this year. It seemed a new rumor popped up on a weekly basis about when the new season would begin.

We were almost positive we were going to get an early summer return with Father’s Day weekend the target for a premiere. It was a solid prediction given that every other season of “Yellowstone” began on Father’s Day. The June 20 date came and went with no sign of a new season. Fans were disappointed but still excited that a season four was coming at some point this year.

Later in the summer, it was rumored that “Yellowstone” would air the first episode of season four in mid-August. Like the first rumor, this one also had a solid foundation. The show reportedly did not want to compete head to head with the Summer Olympics, which were held in Beijing, China this year. This rumor held weight because of the solid reasoning behind it. Going up against the popular sporting event would mean a power struggle over television ratings and no one wants that. We were sure that “Yellowstone” would be arriving as soon as the Olympics wrapped up their final events. Alas, it was not to be and fans were left to wonder when our favorite modern western drama would return to our lives.

‘Yellowstone’ Fans Get Good News on Season Four Premiere

More rumors came and went regarding the return of our beloved show that led to plenty of speculation. ‘Yellowstone’ producers finally broke their silence to announce the “Yellowstone” return in the fall. Beyond that, not much was known about exactly when the premiere date might come. Could it be early fall? Could it be late fall? “Yellowstone” fans didn’t know and, surprisingly, didn’t care. We were just elated to get confirmation that “Yellowstone” is indeed returning this year.

On social media, the “Yellowstone” team released the first teaser trailer as summer turned into fall. We all jumped for joy when we saw the new slogan for season four and learned of the November 7 premiere date. The “Every. Body. Pays.” tagline at the end of the video was enough to send chills down the spines of “Yellowstone” fans.

So shine up your cowboy boots, throw on your cowboy hat and make any last-minute preparations — we are almost there “Yellowstone” fans.
