However, that's not all, as it has also been revealed that a number of other cast members who haven't been on the show for some time will also be making a comeback in the upcoming season. Josh Lucas, Kylie Rogers and Kyle Red Silverstein, who play Young John Dutton, Young Beth Dutton and Young Rip Wheeler, respectively, will once again feature in flashback scenes to the nineties.

Taking to Twitter shortly after the news was shared, one fan wrote: "That's great news! Josh Lucas was awesome as a young John Dutton." Another said: "So I am going to guess that there is more to the Rip & Beth story when they were teenagers," and a third added: "I can't wait to see all of them again!"
