Season 4 began with an investigation as the Duttons’ attempt to figure out who tried to kill John, Beth, and Kayce at the end of season 3. In a shocking twist, Jamie’s biological father, Garrett Randall, organized the hit on the Dutton family. Beth learns about this stunning revelation and gives Jamies a choice: kill his biological father or go to prison. Jamie chooses to kill his father, and while disposing of the body, Beth snaps a picture of the act, owning Jamie from here on out.

At the start of season 5, John is sworn in as the Governor of Montana. John will continue to manipulate his children to ensure his family remains powerful, as evidenced in the trailer. Meanwhile, Kayce is expecting his second child with his wife, Monica. However, Kayce saw a vision of the end of his relationship with Monica in a tribal ceremony so this thought will loom large over the youngest Dutton.

With Stranger Things renewed for a fifth and final season, Matthew Modine  is campaigning for his character, Dr. Martin Brenner, to return to the Netflix series. On the BAFTAs red carpet, Modine suggested that his character may not be dead after the events of season 4.

"Is he dead?" Modine asked when questioned by Radio Times about Brenner's fate. "I wish I knew. I love Millie Bobby Brown. I love the Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy. And it was such a wonderful show to go to work on. It was fun every day that I worked on the show. I hope that there's some way to resuscitate Dr. Brenner and put him in season 5 because it would be wonderful to be part of the last season."

At long last, The Mandalorian has returned with its first new episode in more than two years.

The live-action Star Wars series wrapped up its second season in the winter of 2020. Now, The Mandalorian season 3 has made its long-awaited premiere on Disney+.

Yellowstone starring Kevin Costner could be coming to an end

The top-rated drama on cable, Yellowstone, could be coming to an end very soon.

According to Deadline, Taylor Sheridan and Paramount are moving to end Yellowstone in its current form. However, Sheridan is planning to extend the franchise in a new series starring Matthew McConaughey that would feature current Yellowstone cast members.
“We have no news to report. Kevin Costner is a big part of Yellowstone and we hope that’s the case for a long time to come," a Paramount Network spokesperson said to Deadline. "Thanks to the brilliant mind of Taylor Sheridan, we are always working on franchise expansions of this incredible world he has built. Matthew McConaughey is a phenomenal talent with whom we’d love to partner."
The reason for the sudden ending revolves around the drama behind Kevin Costner's shooting schedule. Costner limited his schedule to 65 days of shooting, but his request changed to 50 days for the first part of the fifth season. Deadline reports that Costner wants to shoot even less for the second half of season 5. Costner is working on Horizon, an epic Western film he co-wrote with Jon Baird. In addition to co-writing the film, Costner will star and direct Horizon.
