‘Yellowstone’ TV: Season 4 Trailer Features New John Dutton Footage

by Jacklyn Krol

Yellowstone‘s fourth season is almost here! The new Yellowstone Season 4 trailer gives fans a taste of the action and drama that’s to come.

On Thursday, August 19, Paramount Network premiered a teaser trailer for the show’s upcoming season. The short clip featured a man asking the patriarch if he was John Dutton. We then see the man come out of the back of a van with a gun and shoots him. Dutton is left on the side of the road bleeding next to his truck. Numerous vultures are seen swirling him.

It seems as though the premiere episode will surround John Dutton and his murder or attempted murder? Would Taylor Sheridan kill off Kevin Costner’s character? Who knew that such a quick clip could lead to so many questions?

The premiere date has also been unveiled as November 7, 2021. Are we counting down days? Yes.

‘Yellowstone’ Delay

It seemed as though that fans were waiting for the Yellowstone Season 4 trailer for an eternity. Due to the pandemic, the show’s fourth season was delayed to the fall instead of the typical June release.

“Everyone keeps calling me going ‘when in the heck is Yellowstone airing’,” series creator Taylor Sheridan told Along For The Ride with Andrea Fappani.

“I say the same thing. I’m really curious about that myself,” he added with a chuckle.

“COVID, it messed everything up,” Sheridan said. “You have all these programing things that got knocked out of whack. So it’s trying to figure out where to slate them back in.”

Sheridan did note that since things are opening back up, it may be a bad time to launch a new season since everyone is out of the house.

Returning and New Characters

Luckily, the entire main cast will be returning. This includes: Kevin CostnerKelly ReillyCole HauserLuke Grimes, and Wes Bentley.

Will Patton, who portrayed Garrett Randall (Jamie Dutton’s biological father) has become a series regular.

Deadline revealed that there are four new cast members that are added to the recurring characters list.

Jacki Weaver will be portraying Caroline Warner, the CEO of Markey Equities. You’ll recall that it is her company that is launching attacks on the Dutton family. Additionally, Piper Perabo will play the role of Summer Higgins. Her character is a Portland native who is protesting the state-funded police force for not aiding in the industrial farming and animal slaughter issues.

Vet tech Emily will be played by Kathryn Kelly. Emily will reportedly have a romantic relationship with one of the cowboys on the show. Finally, Finn Little will join the cast as Carter. Carter is described as “a youth reminiscent of a young Rip (Cole Hauser).”

Furthermore, Yellowstone Season 4 premieres on Paramount on November 7.
