What happens in Season 4 of Yellowstone?

The beginning of Season 4 of Yellowstone promises to be as explosive as the Season 3 finale as we find out which members of the Dutton family will survive. It remains a mystery to the Duttons who ordered the assassination attempts on them.

In the finale of Season 3, "The World is Purple" John was shot on the roadside, Kayce was pinned down by gunfire at the police station, Beth's office was targeted and hit with an explosion and a gunman arrived at Monica's house to kill her.

While we still don't currently know who survives, the Season 4 trailer of Yellowstone suggests someone will have to pay the price for the crimes.

Who stars in the new season of Yellowstone?

Many of the show's regulars return for the new season but there are new characters entering the fray too.

The Dutton family are scheduled to return: Costner (John), Grimes (Kayce), Reilly (Beth) and Bentley (Jamie). Cole Hauser returns as Rip Wheeler, Kelsey Asbille is back as Monica Long Dutton and Gil Birmingham returns as Chief Thomas Rainwater.
