Even though we're all sad that Yellowstone season 3 ended on some significant cliffhangers, we can rest easy knowing that the fourth season is in the works and will be hitting our screens soon enough. It seems that the Paramount Network has some interesting casting in store for Yellowstone season 4 based on this Reddit thread found by a fan.
Apparently, the series was looking for twin babies under the age of six months to be available for a couple of days of filming. Needless to say, there are a ton of potential theories behind who these babies might be. Odds are, they will be playing one character since you typically use twins to make things easier on set when filming with babies and young children (similar to Carrie on Little House on the Prairie).
Could they be Jamie's child who we didn't hear about at all in Season 3? We can't imagine how the Dutton family would react to that news and we've been waiting for an update ever since it was revealed that Jamie's former girlfriend Christina (Katherine Cunningham) was pregnant at the end of Season 2. It could even be Jamie as a baby in a flashback scene since Season 3 revealed that he was adopted by the Duttons and he got to meet his birth father.
Or are we all wrong and the baby belongs to Rip and Beth? We know that Beth can't have children of her own but maybe they decide to adopt at the end of the season? Those two have really been through a lot and they deserve a family of their own, right? Only time will tell but now we're even more excited about the upcoming season.
(Spoilers ahead) We're anxious to see what creator Taylor Sheridan has in store for all of our favorite characters on the beloved TV show. We know that Rip (Cole Hauser), Kayce (Luke Grimes), John Dutton (Kevin Costner), Monica (Kelsey Asbille), and Jamie (Wes Bentley) will all be back for the next season, but Kelly Reilly's Instagram post before the third season finale has us a little worried about Beth Dutton's fate. Hopefully, she comes back to the Dutton Ranch because we honestly can't imagine the series without her. Based on her recent Instagram posts, we think she'll be back.
Taylor Sheridan told Deadline that he's working with the governor of Montana to make sure that they are careful filming the new season during the coronavirus pandemic.
"I'm fortunate that this show shoots on a ranch in Montana. We're going to shoot exclusively there this year, or in and around it. So we've got the crew and the cast up there, and it's in an area of the state that has no active cases now. As long as we're very careful to not bring any in...so once we're there, we'll be very cautious about how we move."
If you live under a rock and haven't watched this incredible show yet, now is your time to catch up! Unfortunately, Yellowstone isn't on most of the popular streaming sites like Hulu, Netflix, or Amazon Prime, but it can be accessed on NBC's new streaming service, Peacock. Seasons 1 and 2 are also available for purchase on Amazon. You have plenty of time to watch the first three seasons of Yellowstone before the season 4 release date this summer. If the show is following their schedule from this past season, we're guessing it should premiere around June.
