Cole Hauser’s Mom May Be More Excited Than Anyone for ‘Yellowstone’s Return

by Jennifer Shea

“Yellowstone” star Cole Hauser’s mother is one proud mama bear. And she proved it by taking to Instagram earlier this week to count down the days until the show’s Season 4 premiere.

As she counts down, Hauser’s mom, Cass Warner, has been sharing pictures of Hauser’s growing-up years. In one picture, we see a young Hauser decked out in camouflage, snapping off a salute. In another, we see young Hauser with his natural red curls, staring pensively into the camera. And in yet another, we see an adolescent Hauser in shades, lounging in front of a car.

“This week is going to be all about Mr. Cole!” Warner posted three days ago. “I have had the pleasure of watching his passions come into being, and couldn’t be happier that they’re being shared with the world! Rip returns in 6 days, along with the rest of the wonderful Yellowstone cast, AND excitement is in the air! Tune in, and enjoy with me. Yippee! Bravo.”

Then: “I loved and still admire Mr. Cole’s ability and enjoyment in taking the time to ponder or think deeply about life and what’s happening around him! It’s a care factor and an awareness that gives him the art of understanding others. Fine details are not missed. Profoundness and honesty make up his characters, always! So looking forward to more of Cole creating Rip! Only 4 more days! Yes!”

‘Yellowstone’ Star’s Mom Cass Warner Is a Filmmaker in Her Own Right

Hauser’s mother – who is the granddaughter of Warner Bros. co-founder Harry Warner – founded her own production company, Warner Sisters, in 1994. She’s also a writer, director and producer.

Cass Warner’s documentary, “The Brothers Warner,” which she wrote, directed and produced, tells the story of the legendary studio’s founding and the relationships between the four Warner brothers who launched it.

The studio became known for making socially conscious films as well as for Jack Warner’s autocratic ways, according to Cass Warner. In fact, she wound up writing a book, also titled “The Brothers Warner,” which tried to set the facts straight in the wake of the more self-serving account published by Jack.

Season 4 Is Just Two Days Away

Meanwhile, as Warner notes in her Instagram posts, Season 4 of “Yellowstone” is just days away. It premieres Sunday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. ET. And Hauser’s mother is not the only one who’s excited about it.

Millions of “Yellowstone” fans will be tuning in to find out how Hauser’s character, Rip Wheeler, will respond to the deadly attacks of the Season 3 finale. Rip is not known for his patient, forgiving nature, and he is sure to rain down vengeance upon whomever is responsible for those attacks.

As Hauser himself promised in a behind-the-scenes featurette, “Everybody’s gonna get f—ed up.”

Will Rip put a stop to the threat posed by Market Equities? The hedge fund’s CEO, Caroline Warner (Jacki Weaver), shows up in Season 4, and while John Dutton (Kevin Costner) has never yet sent Rip to dispatch a woman, maybe he’ll make an exception for her.

And what about Jamie (Wes Bentley)? After the adopted Dutton told Rip not to call him anymore, alarm bells are going off for Rip. How will he deal with Jamie, who may become less of a nuisance and more of a villain, in Season 4?

Above all, will Rip and Beth (Kelly Reilly) finally tie the knot? The battle-scarred lovebirds have been through so much, and fans are really rooting for them to walk down the aisle together. There’s only one way to find out. Catch the Season 4 premiere this Sunday evening.
