On the edges of seats is where you will find “Yellowstone” fans as we get closer to a new season.

The fourth and latest season of the Paramount Network hit series is just three weeks away and there is excitement in the air. A bulk of that excitement comes from the intense cliffhanging finale of the third “Yellowstone” season. The show may be killing off as many as four main characters when we head back to the Dutton Ranch. Starving for answers, the fan base has been patient with the show’s officials — even through an extending waiting period. A big reason is that practically everyone who watches “Yellowstone” believes the long wait will be well worth it come November 7. The show’s enormous fan base is eager for answers and the upcoming two-hour premiere is likely to dive right in.

While there is plenty of excitement surrounding the upcoming new season, there is a mystery regarding the show’s future. “Yellowstone” officials have been silent to date on the possibility for a fifth season renewal. There were rumors earlier this year that filming for a fifth season was imminent — but this did not come to pass. Instead, we’ve heard nothing but silence regarding the potential return of “Yellowstone” for a fifth season.

Now, before you get too worked up — allow me to put your mind at ease regarding the “Yellowstone” future. It is highly likely there will be a fifth season of the show and also likely it will extend past five seasons. With “1883,” a “Yellowstone” prequel series, currently in production — it’s likely the spinoff is the focus at this point. But rest assured that there is a 99 percent chance that “Yellowstone” will live on past the fourth season.

‘Yellowstone’ Has Yet to Make Fifth Season Official

You might be wondering just what “Yellowstone” is waiting for when it comes to announcing a fifth season. The guess here is that they are waiting for a special occasion — like maybe a two-hour season premiere, perhaps. While that prediction may or may not come to pass, it is a sure bet that we’re going to leave what season four has in store for us. Let’s make it through the new season and then look toward another season after that. If only it were that simple, right?

“Yellowstone” producers have yet to come out and say just how many seasons of the modern western drama they are aiming for. The show’s immense popularity suggests it will remain relevant for the foreseeable future. As long as it continues drawing top ratings among cable television shows, it has much to give.

So shine up your cowboy boots, strap on your spurs and sit back and enjoy the modern western goodness that is “Yellowstone.”
