How Many Kids Did John Dutton Have?
The center of the Yellowstone universe is Kevin Costner‘s character, John Dutton III. Lee, Beth, Kayce, and Jamie are the four offspring of the Dutton family patriarch. Before her tragic death in a horseback riding accident in the late 1990s, John III’s wife, Evelyn, was an important member of the family. The family finds it difficult to go on without her, as she is regarded as “the spine of the family.” Her absence is greatly felt. Every youngster adds a distinct aspect to the show, which enhances the depth of the plot.
Lee (Dave Annable) was slated to inherit the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch as the eldest sibling. But then disaster struck when he was murdered in an accident while trying to find animals that had been taken.

Luke Grimes plays Kayce, the youngest of the siblings. Kayce, a former Navy SEAL, begins working for the Montana Livestock Association as a livestock agent before deciding to help out on his father’s ranch. The story is made more complex by his function as a liaison between the Duttons and the Native Americans living on the Broken Rock Indian Reservation.
The second oldest sibling, Jamie (Wes Bentley), was adopted by John III and Evelyn following a terrible event involving his biological father. The series’ complex web is further enhanced by his experiences as Montana’s attorney general and the nuances of his relationship with his adopted family.
Cole Hauser plays Rip Wheeler, a teenager who was taken in by John Dutton III after being orphaned. Rip starts off as a ranch hand on the Yellowstone ranch and eventually works his way up to the post of foreman. He becomes John Dutton III’s valued confidant and is crucial to the day-to-day running of the ranch. while Rip initially arrived at the ranch while they were teenagers, that is where their friendship began.
Does Kayce Dutton Have a Fourth Brother?
According to claims from Christian rock artist Cory Asbury, there may be a fourth Dutton brother, an intriguing prospect. Asbury was supposed to play Kayce Dutton’s long-lost sibling (maybe twin) in a sixth season that was never developed because Yellowstone was canceled. Asbury expressed his delight about the role and the family’s plans to relocate to Montana for a full year, so there was a tangible sense of excitement and expectation for this announcement.
There’s little doubt that the possibility of a fourth Dutton brother would have given the story a whole new perspective. Asbury’s participation and the Dutton family’s preparation for the part suggested a plot that might have delved deeper into the complexities of the Dutton family. Sadly, this story thread was left unfinished when the show was canceled in the middle of its fifth season, leaving viewers with a sense of what might have been.
Will Yellowstone Season 5 Introduce Dutton’s Lost Brother?
Christian rock artist Cory Asbury revealed that he was originally supposed to play this part in Season 6, which heightened fans’ expectations of a long-lost Dutton brother being revealed in Yellowstone Season 5. Asbury, who was “fired up” about the prospect, expressed both excitement and disappointment, which echoed the feelings of fans who were ready to see this new chapter in the Dutton drama come to life.
Asbury, who kind of looks like Luke Grimes, brings something different to the possible introduction. Asbury’s seriousness and importance of this planned introduction are indicated by his plans to go to Montana for a year, his family’s meticulous preparations, and the expectation of meeting Luke Grimes and series creator Taylor Sheridan.
Sadly, their intentions came to an abrupt stop with Yellowstone’s mid-season cancelation. The entrance of the fourth Dutton brother remained unsolved with the decision to end the series in November 2024. Even though the show’s finale signifies the end of one chapter, the prospect of spinoffs, such as 1944 and 2024, guarantees that the Yellowstone world will keep growing and enthralling viewers with novel and surprising adventures.
