Yellowstone’s highly-anticipated season 4 is coming in November, and the trailer promises that “everybody pays” in the new episodes. According to star Wes Bentley (Jamie Dutton), season 4 will pick up “right where we left off” and the premiere will be “spectacular to see.”

The Dutton family was under attack in the ‘Yellowstone’ season 3 finale

The explosive Yellowstone season 3 finale ended with a seemingly coordinated attack on John Dutton (Kevin Costner), Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes), and Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly). Patriarch John was on the side of the road helping a woman change a tire when an unknown man drove up and shot him.

At the same time, a group of armed men stormed into Kayce’s Livestock Commissioner office, forcing him to take cover behind his desk. And Beth was cleaning out her office at Schwartz & Meyer when a package exploded.

Jamie was the only Dutton who wasn’t in danger. And just before the explosive final moments of the finale, he told Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser) not to call him anymore. These are two of the reasons that some Yellowstone fans believe that Jamie was behind the attacks on his family.

The return of Jamie’s biological father will be an important part of season 4

In season 3, Jamie discovered that he was not born into the Dutton family.

After his father killed his mother, John and Evelyn Dutton (Gretchen Mol) adopted him as a baby. Jamie’s biological father Garrett Randall (Will Patton) — claims he did his time for the crimes he committed.

When Jamie went to see him, Garrett told him that he should be running the Dutton Ranch. And the only way to take over an empire is to “kill the king.” In the upcoming season, Patton will be a series regular. And the trailer makes it clear that he will be an important part of Jamie’s story.

In the season 4 trailer, Garrett says, “Fair. Moral. Those are words men invented to scare and shame other men from taking back what they’ve stolen.” But “what about right or wrong?” Jamie asks, with his hand shaking as he holds a gun. “There’s no such thing,” Garrett says.

Bentley revealed that “where we pick up is right where we left off,’ while speaking about the season premiere of season 4,

“The action of the scene is [in] real-time,” he explains. “My heart was pumping just reading it so I think it’s going to be pretty spectacular to see.”

The season 4 Yellowstone teaser shows that the police are on the scene after the bomb goes off at Schwartz & Meyer. That explosion was so powerful it blew out the windows of cars parked outside. The clip also appears to show Rip finding John and telling him, “Don’t you die on me now, not like this.”

Jamie is seen acting a bit surprised, but simply says “oh my God.” 

The implication is that he just found out about the attacks on his family. Of course, this could be very misleading.

Will Patton found season 4 ‘surprising’

Patton told Express that you never know what’s going to happen next in Yellowstone ahead of his first season as a series regular,

“Even though they say, ‘this is probably what’s going to happen,’ you never quite know with this series, you never know where you’re really going to go,” Patton explained. “So for me, it was surprising as we went along where it went.”

When asked if Jamie was done with the Duttons for good, Patton played coy. But he did admit that “it would make sense.”

“Well, if you know Taylor [Sheridan], it’s gonna be hard-hitting,” Patton said with a laugh. “Not many people are involved with forgiveness on that show. You don’t want to offend anybody on that show. That’s all I know to say right now. Everybody who comes on that show is afraid they’re going to be hung upside down naked by Rip.”

Season 4 of Yellowstone will premiere Sunday, Nov. 7 on The Paramount Network. Seasons 1 through 3 are available exclusively on Peacock.
