‘Yellowstone’ Season 4: When Does It Start? Everything to Know

by Jon D. B.

Yellowstone Season 4 is right around the corner, and we’ve gathered everything we know about the show so far to get fans ready.

Season 4 will officially premiere on November 7. The thrilling announcement dropped with an all-new trailer. Check it out below:

The wait has been long, but it’s almost time for Yellowstone‘s return! Below, you’ll find only official information on Season 4. From the premiere date, to new and returning cast members – it’s all here!

Here’s what we know so far:

‘Yellowstone’ Season 4 will Air November 2021 on Paramount Network

While Paramount originally toted a familiar summertime release for Season 4, several factors have led to its delay. For one, the COVID-19 Pandemic held up nearly every production on record, with Yellowstone being no exception. This, combined with Paramount’s restructuring with CBSViacom, led to the network adjusting to fall.

As such, Yellowstone Season 4 will premiere in Fall 2021 on Paramount Network.

Fall is traditionally when most big shows make their return or debut, after all. With this in mind – and with Yellowstone becoming cable television’s biggest drama – Paramount wants to milk Season 4 for all its worth with prime scheduling.

Beyond “Fall 2021,” however, we still do not have an exact release date for Yellowstone Season 4. Additional shooting with new and returning cast members is currently underway, so a later, November / Holiday 2021 window is most likely.

Right off the bat, it’s worth noting that the entire core Yellowstone cast is set to return. That means Kevin Costner, Kelly Reilly, Cole Hauser, Luke Grimes, Wes Bentley, and the whole original cast will feature heavily for Season 4, as expected.

But there are a few surprises in store, that’s for sure. For starters, Will Patton has signed on as a Season 4 series regular. This means his villainous Garrett Randall, a.k.a Jamie Dutton’s biological father, is set to play a much larger role in the events to come. We’ll leave it at that.

When it comes to new characters, Yellowstone Season 4 promises to deliver. Deadline broke the big news at the beginning of July, and filming with the following new cast members has been underway since:

  • Jacki Weaver will be playing CEO of Market Equities Caroline Warner. As a recurring cast member, Weaver should play a big part in the company’s attacks on the Duttons. Audiences have seen her in Silver Linings Playbook and Stoker, among many film and guest television appearances.
  • Piper Perabo is joining the cast as Summer Higgins. Summer is a protestor from Portland, and is against the state-funded police force in place to protect industrial farming and animal slaughter. She is also a recurring cast member, and audiences will know her from her breakout role as Violet Sanford in Coyote Ugly.
  • Kathryn Kelly is cast as Vet Tech Emily. The Nashville actress is set as a recurring cast member as well, and her Emily will strike up a relationship with one of the Yellowstone cowboys.
  • Finn Little is joining the cast as Carter, “a youth reminiscent of a young Rip (Cole Hauser) whom the Duttons gave a home. Here, Beth decides the ranch is the best place to teach the youth how to be a man,” per Deadline.
