“Yellowstone” fans are not sitting idly by as the originally anticipated Season 4 premiere date comes and goes. Many of them are making their displeasure known in social media posts and on fan message boards.
In fact, Jimmy Hurdstrom actor Jefferson White recently jumped into the Instagram comments section in an attempt to soothe fans’ impatience over the delayed Season 4 premiere. Amid a smattering of testy comments and the unsubstantiated claim that Season 4 had been cancelled, White hastily reassured fans that their waiting would not be in vain.
“Appreciate y’all!!” White posted. “Season 4 is worth the wait, I promise!!”
Season 4 of ‘Yellowstone’ Has Been Pushed Back
Initially, fans believed Season 4 would premiere in June, as it has for the three previous seasons. That belief was backed up by an Instagram post from the Chief Joseph Ranch, the real-world setting for the fictional Dutton ranch, last November.
“That’s a wrap on filming Season 4!” the ranch’s Instagram account posted late last year. “Who is excited for the premiere in June?”
But then June arrived, and there was no official announcement of a premiere date. What there was, however, was a casting notice calling for extras for a recent shoot in Montana. It seems possible that “Yellowstone” is now reshooting some scenes from Season 4.
If that is the case, fans could have a while longer to wait for the Season 4 premiere. But with no official word yet, fan speculation is rampant.
Fans Are Getting Impatient
Meanwhile, “Yellowstone” fans have been hitting the online message boards with theories about what’s holding Taylor Sheridan et al. up. Some speculated that the Olympics is what prompted “Yellowstone” producers to push the premiere back. Others suggested it was due to the pandemic.
In the comments section of this week’s @Yellowstone Jimmy appreciation post, the show’s Instagram followers had some choice words about the delay.
“Hey season 4 hurry up,” one fan posted, after a making a comment about Jimmy and Mia (Eden Brolin).
“BUT WHEN DOES SEASON 4 START??!! 😩,” another fan commented.
“Can we stop posting anything other than the series release date. K? Thanks,” yet another fan posted in the comments.
Thanks to White’s comments, it’s clear that Season 4 will be airing at some point. It’s just not clear when.
