Star of Paramount’s hit modern Western series Wes Bentley has been previewing the events of the upcoming fourth season. When Yellowstone finally continues, some foreboding comments from Jamie Dutton himself have hinted towards an impossibly bleak opening episode. 

Jamie Dutton (played by Wes Bentley) endured his toughest journey yet in the third season of surprise hit Yellowstone. 

Showrunner Taylor Sheridan put John Dutton’s (Kevin Costner) loyal yet unstable son through the ringer this year, as Jamie discovered his adoption had been kept a secret since childhood. 

He then confronted his biological father, Garrett Randall (Will Patton), who shamelessly confessed to killing Jamie’s real mother when he was a child. 

Meanwhile, the devastating final episode gave viewers traumatic flashbacks to Game of Thrones as the audience was forced to watch the Duttons targeted one by one.

With John Dutton left bleeding on the side of the road and the fates of Beth (Kelly Reilly) and Kayce (Luke Grimes) unclear, it’s anyone’s guess how the next season will begin.

Many fans are already convinced Beth was killed by the explosive package delivered to her office, though the fates of John, Kayce and Tate (Brecken Merrill) are less certain. 

Theories have already levelled accusations at prime suspect Garrett Randall, as Jamie’s father ominously referred to ‘killing the king’ in their confrontation. 

When the hit series returns, the earlier episodes are predicted to comprise a murder mystery of sorts as the Duttons recover in time to deduce who orchestrated the attacks on the family.

However, some foreboding comments from series co-lead Wes Bentley have teased this may not be the case. 

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Bentley hinted towards Jamie taking centre stage in the next season after the rest of the family meet their maker. 

Though many fans were distraught by the events of the finale, Bentley opened up by praising the game-changing new direction from head writer Taylor Sheridan. 

He said: “When I read the script, I was like, ‘Oh?!’ With Taylor, we’ll be on a path down one way and he’ll cut the branches on the side so we’re going to tumble down with him.”

“I think big, big, dramatic things happen, violent things happen, and in a lot of ways it defines the show because that’s who gets the ultimate say.”

Despite the series’ narrative taking its cues from classic Westerns, Sheridan transposes the action to the modern day and imbues Yellowstone’s story with 21st Century corruption, revenge and visceral violence. 

Yellowstone certainly proved itself as one of the toughest watches in recent memory by the end of season three, and the next instalment is expected to be no different. 

Additionally, comments from Bentley have implied Sheridan will follow through with the unforeseen twist in the season finale in more ways than one when the show returns.

The star continued: “To restart or refresh, he definitely has left himself an open door for a lot of options. I think that’s clever. 

“He has a plan, so I think he was ahead of it. As an audience, it feels like the board got wiped and we can write some new things on that board.”

Bentley may simply be referring to the gutsy decision to place almost all of the show’s key characters in the crosshairs during Yellowstone’s final moments of season three. 

However, with the rug firmly pulled out from under the feet of the series’ millions of viewers, there’s a strong possibility season four will be several characters short when it starts up next year.

Yellowstone is available to watch on Paramount.
