Ranch owner John Dutton (played by Kevin Costner) and his family were the victims of a horrific series of attacks at the end of the latest season of Yellowstone. With season four due to premiere on Paramount later this year, some updates from behind the scenes seem to suggest they survived the ordeal.

A new cast member for Yellowstone season four could indicate John Dutton will still be alive when the Western drama returns.

The powerful ranch owner was struck down in a roadside ambush by unknown enemies in the closing minutes of the season three closer, ‘The World Is Purple’.

Although he was seemingly saved from certain death by his cell phone, conveniently placed in his breast pocket, there’s still a chance he succumbs to his wounds before he’s found.

Moreover, the first and only footage revealed from the next season so far features John’s trusted ranch manager Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser) finding him lying motionless by his truck.

Season three also threw the fates of John’s children Beth (Kelly Reilly) and Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) into doubt.

John’s son Kayce leaps into action to shield himself from armed intruders, but Beth isn’t so lucky as she’s caught in the blast of a deadly explosive package sent to her office.

With fans still trying to sniff out the culprits, it still hasn’t been revealed who will live and who will die heading into the next season.

Thankfully, the appearance of an unnamed ‘Hospital Visitor’ in the updated cast list suggests at least one of the Duttons will make it through to season four.

One perceptive viewer posted the list on Reddit when they noticed a number of newcomers had been added on IMDb.

User 7ruby18 said: “I just noticed there have been some updates to the characters on the cast and crew list on

“Whether or not these ‘new’ characters are important or pivotal, I have no clue.”

Bear in mind, listings on IMDb don’t always come from official sources, so these theories should be treated as speculation.

That being said, the addition of actor Mike D. Harris as ‘Hospital Visitor’ could provide some insight into Yellowstone’s upcoming premiere.

John Dutton will undoubtedly need extensive medical attention after being riddled with bullets by masked shooters.

Had he, in fact, been killed in the attack, it would be more likely for the fourth season to open with a funeral than a trip to the hospital.

After being saved by his mobile phone and, potentially, Rip Wheeler, the season premiere could open on John having been raced to the hospital to treat his wounds.

On the other hand, there’s a strong chance that both Beth and Kayce were severely injured by the attacks.

There’s also the question of ranch hand Jimmy Hurdstrom (Jefferson White), who refuted John’s advice and got back on his horse despite landing in the hospital himself last time he was bucked in the rodeo.

Whatever the case, Yellowstone season four is shaping up to be a painful experience for the Dutton clan.

Yellowstone season 4 will premiere in late 2021 on Paramount.
