“Yellowstone” star Kelly Reilly is as ready for Season 4 as you are.

On Thursday, Reilly swiftly passed along the news of the just-announced “Yellowstone” Season 4 premiere date to all of her fans. It’s Nov. 7, in case you haven’t heard.

“November 7th @yellowstone Season 4 … Best one yet apparently… 💣,” Reilly posted to Instagram, including a sly reference to the bomb in the Season 3 finale cliffhanger that put her character Beth Dutton’s life on the line.

Reilly Refused to Utter Any Spoilers, But She’s Proud of the Show

In interviews since the Season 3 finale, Reilly has consistently refused to say anything about whether Beth lives or dies. And given that Beth is a fan-favorite character, the suspense has been killing many “Yellowstone” fans.

For example, in a February chat with ScreenRant, Reilly left open the heartbreaking possibility that Beth did not survive the bomb that tore through her office – and just as she and Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser) had finally gotten engaged, too.

“I’m not allowed to really say too much about whether or not I’m part of Season 4,” Reilly said. “In fact, I’m not allowed to say anything. But what I can say is that season four has been shot, and that it’s wonderful what happens. I will say that. It’s really mind-blowing and big and extravagant, and [EP] Taylor Sheridan came back. He writes every script, and he directed a bunch of them again, so I know it’s bigger than ever.”

But Reilly is clearly proud of “Yellowstone,” and she foreshadowed her Thursday remark that this season is the “best one yet” by adding, “I think the seasons are just getting better, personally. And our audience is getting bigger as well. It’s become a real thing.”

At Last, ‘Yellowstone’ Fans’ Wait Is Nearly Over

For “Yellowstone” fans, the news of the Season 4 premiere date couldn’t come soon enough. First, everyone expected it to happen in June. That was, after all, when the first three seasons premiered. And even the Chief Joseph Ranch, the real-world setting for the fictional Dutton ranch, posted to its Instagram that the premiere would happen this summer.

Alas, June came and went with no premiere. There was some speculation that Paramount Network didn’t want to lose audience share to the Olympics, or that they needed to re-shoot some scenes. Finally, last month, news broke that Paramount was eyeing November for the premiere.

Now fans know exactly how long they have left to wait for more “Yellowstone.” And if Reilly is right, the wait should be well worth it.
