Now production has resumed in Montana, Hauser has also opened up about the physical challenges of returning to the character of Rip.
The star admitted: “Horseback riding at a very high level is a hell of a workout for the core, back and legs, you name it. Riding and roping and cutting, all the different disciplines we do on the show, it’ll keep you in shape.
“That first initial, when you come back to work on the show, you’re sore for a week and then you kind of power through.”
Sheridan’s fourth season of the acclaimed modern Western should be eying Yellowstone’s traditional June release window, giving Cole Hauser plenty of time to rein in his performance.
Yellowstone will return with season 4 in 2021 on Paramount and Peacock.
