Fans of Yellowstone have been eagerly awaiting the release date for season 4. It’s a show that has an average IMDb rating of 9.2/10 and is one of the most anticipated new shows on Netflix this year, but unfortunately, we now know why it was delayed:
In January 2019, reports were circulating from Variety about how Paramount Network (the channel that airs Yellowstone) had fired their president Kevin Kay after just weeks in the job. This is because they wanted to take a more “entrepreneurial approach” by striving to be less reliant on corporate parent Viacom while still maintaining profitability and growth.
This led them to cancel some existing productions, including Treadstone, which was originally set to be the fourth season of Yellowstone, and it’s now been confirmed that there won’t be a new release date until Treadstone is renamed.
The show came to Netflix with some controversy when Paramount Network announced they were going to air the final two seasons exclusively on their network before bringing them over to Netflix for international viewers. This will mean an exclusive window running from 2020-2022, which means we have at least another year before we can expect any news about a release date for Season Four.
This led many fans of the series who do not subscribe to Paramount Network (like me!) into panic mode because this meant waiting up to three years after the end of Season Three just so I could see.
Tate Dutton shares disappointment on the delay!
‘I’m a little disappointed,’ actor Tate Dutton said. ‘The show is going to be on for another year and I would have liked it to end sooner rather than later.’
Dutton acted as the character of Kate Elder in seasons three, four, and five. He was expecting that filming had been completed but now he’s not so sure when Season Four will come out.”
“We finished shooting probably two weeks ago,” Dutton explained. “So we were assuming that it would air very soon because they usually do their thing quite well before they announce something like this. So yeah, there are some questions about what happened with Paramount Network or whatever – whether someone pulled the plug at the last minute or what!”
Reason for the delay of release!
Yellowstone season four know the reason for the delay. The fourth series was supposed to come out before Christmas but there was a change in management or funding, resulting in more time being needed to complete post-production on the series. Regardless of what the reasons truly are for this delay, it will surely be frustrating for fans who were expecting Season Four to come out before July
“It would make sense if they just wanted us back sooner than later,” Dutton said when speaking about how he thinks Paramount Network plans to address viewers’ concerns with regards to why there has been such an extensive delay between seasons three and four. “But I don’t know – we’ll see!”
We believe this is due to a change in management or funding, resulting in more time being needed to complete post-production on the series. Regardless of what the reasons truly are for this delay, it will surely be frustrating for fans who were expecting Season Four to come out before July.
The delay is, in our opinion, due to a change in management or funding on the part of Paramount Network. While we can’t say for certain what exactly has caused this unanticipated problem with airing Season Four, it’s clear that there have been some serious changes behind the scenes at the studio. If you’re feeling frustrated by how long it will take before new episodes come out – don’t worry too much! It looks like they’ll be releasing them as soon as possible after post-production wraps up and all goes well.
Without any major spoilers about what happens between now and when Yellowstone season four does eventually air next year: one thing we know for sure is just how excited fans are going to be once they do.
