It’s all there, in 1883, and I’m honored to be part of it.”

McGraw describes 1883 as truly a dream job and says that the Sheridan has found a way of storytelling. “The Duttons are tremendous characters. It’s so thrilling to be able to bring them to life,” McGraw says about the Yellowstone family.

When Will Season 4 of the Series ‘Yellowstone’ Premiere? 

Although Paramount has remained quiet of exactly when season 4 of Yellowstone is set to premiere, the network recently confirmed that the hit series’ new season will premiere in the Fall of 2021. 

In a June 2019 interview with IndieWire, Kevin Costner explains he’s not quite sure if his character, John Dutton, will be satisfied with his Yellowstone storyline. “If [John] keeps making these same mistakes, people will lose faith in who [he is] even as a character,” Costner states. “The show has to watch out for that.”

In regards to Yellowstone’s quick approach to its storyline, Costner adds, “If your foot’s on the gas, you can run into a wall. Something can run quite awhile if the architecture of it is careful – not explosive, but careful.”
