What was in the Yellowstone Season 4 Finale?
John, Kayce, and Beth survived the militia attack, and it didn’t take long to figure out that Riggins was behind the curtain. Plans to kill him were put on hold as Beth moved her attention to getting revenge against Jamie.
We already knew that a major character would die, and so did happen. Justice was served for the deathly attacks against John and his children Beth and Kayce.
Like you’d suspect, it does not end here. Their family ranch remains surrounded by enemies and threats, and who knows what the way out is?
Yellowstone Season 5
Here’s the burning question: will there be a season 5? If so, when? And who will be in it?
Let’s break it down. Executive Producer David Grasser says that Taylor Sheridan is deep into season 5 of Yellowstone and has got some brilliant ideas about storyline succession. In January 2022, he also implied that the show would resume filming in May- and if we’re lucky enough, Yellowstone season 5 will be back by fall!
Yellowstone Season 5 Cast
Considering where the show left off, it is almost a sure knot that Kevin Costner, Kelly Reilly, Luke Grimes, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Gil Birmingham, Forrie J. Smith, and others will be back. Here’s a brief on who they will play:
|Kevin Costner||as John Dutton|
|Luke Grimes||as Kayce Dutton|
|Kelly Reilly||as Bethany Dutton|
|Wes Bentley||as Jamie Dutton|
|Cole Hauser||as Rip Wheeler|
|Kelsey Asbille||as Monica Long Dutton|
|Brecken Merrill||as Tate Dutton|
|Jefferson White||as Jimmy Hurdstrom|
|Gil Birmingham||as Chief Thomas Rainwater|
|Forrie J. Smith||as Lloyd Pierce|
|Denim Richards||as Colby Mayfield|
|Ian Bohen||as Ryan|
|Ryan Bingham||as Walker|
|Finn Little||as Carter|
Yet, it is unclear whether Caroline Warner (Jackie Weaver), Summer Higgins (Piper Perabo), or other recently added characters will be back.
Yellowstone Season 5 Cast and Crew Comments
Seeing as Yellowstone is the talk of the town, naturally, the cast and crew had a few things to say. Executive producer David Glasser gave us enough reason to jump up in excitement when, in January 2022, he announced, “It’s the prime of the show. I think the show is still maturing, and there’s still a lot of stories to tell. I know with [show creator Taylor Sheridan], he’s got a lot to say and a lot to write. He’s deep into season 5 of Yellowstone now. He’s got some incredible ideas that he shared that I think audiences are going to be really excited about.”
If that wasn’t enough to make us squeal, it was hinted that Cole Hauser, in a virtual happy hour, pointed toward the preparation of season 5. “[Showrunner and writer Taylor Sheridan] is working on it right now,” he told Kathryn Hall. “Season five is going to be wonderful. The way we ended season four—I can’t give too much away, but the way season four ends, I think the audience… will be happily surprised,” he said. He later also said, “For us as actors, and I think I can speak for everybody… we come together. This is now going into our fifth year,” hence indicating that at the very least, one fore denizen of the Dutton Ranch will return.
We’re in for surprises, and with Yellowstone, that has become the new normal. We suspect that season 5 will break all bounds and leap forward even faster than Yellowstone ever has before.
