‘Yellowstone’ TV: Tate Actor Brecken Merrill Drops Behind-the-Scenes Photo From Season 4 Filming

by Thad Mitchell

Yellowstone star Brecken Merrill, who plays Tate Dutton on the Paramount Network series, is sharing good news on social media.

Merrill has been on a recent quest to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. On Monday, he took to social media to announce that he and “Team Young Hollywood” had reached their goal of $2,500. Merrill teamed up with fellow Yellowstone actors Kyle Silverstein and Dalton Baker to raise money for the great cause. The trio held a question and answer session with Yellowstone fans to raise the funds that will now go to St. Jude. Merrill also thanks everyone who participated in the fundraiser in his social media post.

“We reached our goal!” Merrill says in the post. “Between Instagram and Facebook, we were able to raise $2,500 for St. Jude with Team Young Hollywood.”

The young star also made good on a promise to provide Yellowstone fans with a glimpse behind the scenes of season four. He shares a photo of himself and Dutton family cook “Gator” as they are on set for fourth season filming.

“As promised, here is a behind-the-scenes from Yellowstone season four when Gator took a giant leek right next to the snack table,” Merrill continues.

Brecken then takes the opportunity to thank everyone involved in the event and the people who made donations.

“Thank you to everyone who donated and shared and participated in this great cause,” he says in the post. “You guys are the best! See you in June.”

Though an exact date is not yet been announced, Yellowstone will be returning next month. Previous seasons of Yellowstone have premiered on Father’s Day, which falls on June 20 this year.

Brecken Merrill is one of Yellowstone’s breakaway stars as the young cowboy-in-training Tate Dutton. The only grandchild of Yellowstone Ranch proprietor John Dutton, Tate is the son of Kayce and Monica Dutton. He spends his days on the ranch watching how the cowboys keep the cattle in line among their other chores.

Fans are eager to see what the fourth season of Yellowstone has in store for Tate. Season three ended with his family under attack as his grandfather, father and aunt, Beth Dutton, could be dead or alive heading into the new season. Though he is still just a child, it’s hard not to think revenge for the attacks on his family won’t be on his mind.
