Yellowstone season 4 release date
Yellowstone season 4 began on Sunday 7th November 2021 on the Paramount Network for US viewers. The premiere launched with two episodes.
Filming took place over the summer, with a casting call being sent out in May requiring supporting artists for crowd scenes, which wouldn't have been possible at the height of the pandemic.
In June 2021, Yellowstone missed its usual premiere date on Father's Day, prompting star Jefferson White to promise fans their patience would be rewarded, saying: "Appreciate y'all!! Season 4 is worth the wait, I promise!!"

Yellowstone season 4 cast
Kevin Costner (Man of Steel) leads the Yellowstone cast as John Dutton, whose family has owned and run a lucrative ranch for six generations, but their claim over the land is continually challenged.
Family is a major theme in the series, with several other members of the Dutton family taking key roles, including Luke Grimes (Fifty Shades of Grey) as youngest son and former Navy SEAL, Kayce.
Meanwhile, English actress Kelly Reilly (Britannia) plays John's daughter, Beth, a ruthless and loyal financier who suffers from substance abuse issues.
Cole Hauser (Olympus Has Fallen) appears as her on-again off-again partner Rip Wheeler, who works on the Dutton ranch as a foreman and is a trusted ally to their family.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Gil Birmingham is back for Yellowstone season four, returning to the role of tribal chief Thomas Rainwater, who views the Dutton ranch as stolen from the Native Americans who once lived there.
Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games) stars as Jamie, Beth's eldest brother, who often goes unsupported by the rest of his family, with season three revealing that he was actually adopted as an infant by the Duttons.
Yellowstone season four delves deeper into this storyline, promoting Will Patton (Swamp Thing) to series regular as Jamie's biological father Garrett Randall, who has recently been released from prison after serving a lengthy murder sentence.
A further addition for season four is Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), who will play Caroline Warner, the CEO of Market Equities.
Yellowstone season 4 trailer
Paramount Network released the Yellowstone season four teaser trailer in June 2021, promising fans that the 15-month wait between episodes will be worth it.
The trailer confirmed that patriarch John Dutton survives the shooting he suffered in the action-packed episode, which is not hugely surprising given that Kevin Costner is the show's biggest name. Watch below.
A longer trailer dropped in September, featuring more brand new footage from the upcoming season, as Will Patton's Garrett Randle makes an ominous return, now boasting series regular status. Watch below to find out what's in store.
