Yellowstone has almost arrived on The Paramount Network and it has been a long time coming for fans. The fates of the Duttons were left hanging in the balance at the end of season three and fans are still waiting to find out what happened. Will the double-bill premiere reveal who was responsible? Here’s all we know.
Will the Yellowstone 2 hour premiere reveal who attacked the Duttons?
The Paramount Network will be treating fans to a double bill of Yellowstone this season, following an excruciatingly long wait.
Not much has been given away regarding what the premiere will entail as the promotional videos have all contained old footage.
The one thing viewers did learn was that ranch hand Rip Wheeler (played by Cole Hauser) managed to save John Dutton (Kevin Costner).
The fates of Beth (Kelly Reilly) and Kayce (Luke Grimes) remain undetermined but the premiere should shed light on whether they survived.
This early on in the series, it seems unlikely the show will kill off two fan-favourite characters.

As for who ordered the attacks, however, this storyline may well be dragged out across the episodes.
One of the main plot points will be discovering who was behind the assassination attempts, with many viewers believing Rip will lead the investigation.
With this in mind, it could be the case that fans will not find out who is responsible straight away.
There is a possibility the revelation will not come to light until the season finale, leaving the latest outing on the ultimate cliffhanger.
The network has promised the fourth season will be “worth the wait”, so fans can expect an intense premiere.
The Paramount Network is airing all previous episodes of Yellowstone so fans can get up to speed.
Beth star Reilly has previously teased what could be in store for the Duttons.
Speaking to Esquire, she said: “As an actor, especially one that’s been put through hell and back with a character like Beth, I was like, ‘What’s the end game?’
“And there’s a big cliffhanger obviously at the end of season three. Obviously I can’t tell you whether or not Beth makes it another day, to see if she finds that peace that you talk about.
“But it’s an interesting question with any character. Is happiness something that is an ultimate end goal? Or is it something that kind of… there are moments of it in all our lives and days and… it doesn’t last.
“It’s like you touch it and you don’t try and hold on to it. I think there’s a great William Blake quote about that.”
Yellowstone season 4 airs on The Paramount Network on November 7.
