We all are obsessed with Yellowstone, whether you admit it or not. But, would you believe if we told you it’s just going to get better? No? What about if Jefferson White, the actor who plays Jimmy, says it?

In an interview with TV Insider, he makes that bold claim. We just hope Yellowstone season four can live up to our ever-growing expectations now.

“It’s incredible,” starts White. “I think Season 4 is the best season yet. We shot it all in Montana, and that really has a transformative effect. I really think it’s an incredible season.”

Will Yellowstone Season Four Live Up to the Hype?

It’s not just scenery that makes this season better than the rest, however. White says that it’s an action-packed season that starts out strong.

“Season 3 had a kind of slow-burn pace to it,” says White. “It was like a slow, simmering build to that finale, which obviously had such a climactic explosion leaving so many of the Duttons in danger, and Season 4 just starts out at this breakneck pace. The first episode of Season 4 is my favorite episode of the show yet, so I just can’t wait for people to see it.”

The last time we saw the Yellowstone characters, half were either dead, dying, or in some sort of immediate danger. While Jimmy wasn’t shot or blown up, he battled his own internal struggle.

After a bad rodeo accident that left him bruised and battered in the hospital, John Dutton agreed to pay the costly medical bills, but only if Jimmy promised to give up his newfound love. No not Mia. Rodeo. However, he does seem pretty smitten with his first girlfriend.

Back In the Saddle

Jimmy decides to defy orders and climb back into the saddle. Literally and figuratively. He quickly finds himself back in the dirt and back in pain. When Jefferson White was asked about this situation’s effect on Jimmy’s character in the future, he explains how he must consider everything at stake.

“He’s used to being young and invincible. I don’t think he really considers his own mortality. He’s been kicked off so many horses and hurt over and over again that he always bounces back pretty quickly, but I think this time it’s different because, if he gets back up, not only would he be very badly injured, but he’s also broken his word to John Dutton, which is its own kind of consequence.”
