Another elated fan admitted that she couldn't wait for the next season to premiere as the show is the best. Other thrilled viewers used exciting emojis to dictate their joy at the thought of the new season returning.

Fans of the series recall that season 3, which ended back in August, concluded with a scary cliffhanger that saw three major members of the Dutton clan John, his daughter Beth (Kelly Reilly), and Kaycee (Luke Grimes) fighting for their lives.

During an interview in December, Costner opened up about his character's fate on the show, saying that he couldn't reveal if for sure he would be returning for the upcoming fourth season of the western series.

However, the award-winning actor assured that the audience was in for a powerful end with a dramatic arc that they never saw coming. Costner's decision to star in the series came as a shock to many of his fans. 

Known for his performance in blockbusters, the two-time Golden Globe winner starring as the lead in a seasonal show was a diversion from his usual track record. A source close to the actor said about his involvement in the series:

"The show so satisfies him creatively that he doesn't feel he needs to do the big movies now."

His love for the show has translated into his personal life. The actor is the owner of a 160-acre ranch near Aspen. Costner is a doting father of 7 kids and has been married to Christine Baumgartner for more than a decade.
