Yellowstone fans have been waiting for season 4 ever since the final moments of season 3 aired in August 2020. The volatile finale abandoned the Dutton family fighting for survival, and lovers have a lot of questions regarding who made it out alive. They also want to know who was behind the attacks.
Fans have a whole lot of theories about what is coming in season 4. But a few are now convinced that there isn’t going to be answered anytime soon. Has 4 of Yellowstone been postponed?
‘Yellowstone’ Has A History Of Premiering In June
During the first three seasons of Yellowstone, the Taylor Sheridan-generated series has premiered in June each moment. Season 1 premiered on the Paramount Network on June 20, 2018, and year 2 first hit TV screens on June 19, 2019. Season 3 premiered on June 21, 2020, so the assumption was that season 4 will begin this season on the weekend of June 20.
Numerous Yellowstone enthusiast pages have promised this premiere date, and a few have even created art. Additionally, there are Facebook groups using a countdown to Father’s Day, June 20. But the countdown isn’t for the holiday. It’s a countdown to the expected Yellowstone season 4 premiere date.
The Paramount Network Hasn’t Announced A Premiere Date
Despite the pandemic, the creation for season 4 of Yellowstone was not delayed. There was a manufacturing bubble to its cast and crew on set in Montana to keep everyone safe. As a result, filming began in October 2020.
The Paramount Network revealed at the end of November that filming had formally wrapped, but they’ve still failed to announce a premiere date for season 4. Many viewers have voiced their frustration on social networking, saying the community’s silence is”frustrating and painful”
Has Season 4 Of ‘Yellowstone’ Been Delayed?
Though filming wrapped months ago, post-production to get a show like Yellowstone might not be complete. It will take a few months to finish the episodes, but still doesn’t explain why Paramount has been tight-lipped about Yellowstone season 4. There has been zero promotion on social networking, and enthusiasts are starting to voice their concerns on Reddit.
The Paramount Network has also released their schedule for June 20, also Yellowstone was nowhere to be found. Instead, they have a complete day of Bar Rescue episodes scheduled to air. This fact pretty much verifies that the popular western will not be premiering in June as fans anticipated.
Internet Sleuths May Have Discovered The Cause Of The Delay
Some fans posited that the Paramount Network could be waiting to premiere the new season of Yellowstone until after the Olympics. The international juggernaut is traditionally a TV rating bonanza that’s aired across multiple platforms and networks. However, the Paramount Network isn’t part of NBCU universal, the business that is broadcasting the matches.
There aren’t any program conflicts with the Olympics, so what is causing the delay? According to articles from Facebook accounts that hire extras for Yellowstone, there was an additional two-day shoot on June 10 and June 11 in Montana.
‘Yellowstone Hasn’t Finished Production On Season 4
The Facebook post reads, “Hello Montana!! We will be back for a 2-day shoot in June!! This is a protest scene that we had to cancel last year because of snow. If you are accessible & fit the classes please submit!”
This post verifies that filming has not completely wrapped like lovers originally believed. It looks like the wait for season 4 is going to be longer than fans anticipated.
For lovers wanting to revisit the series while they await new events, seasons 1 through 3 of Yellowstone are available on Peacock.
