Taking to his Instagram page, the 16-year-old actor shared a snap from the upcoming season which showed the star dressed in character while sitting in the dining room at the Dutton ranch. 

Fans were quick to comment on the Australian teen's growth spurt, with one person writing: "Finn you look so different from season four to season five. Wow," while another added: "Can't wait to see how they explain the new Carter! So grown up and handsome in just a blink of an eye to TV viewers."

A third commented: "Get outta town! All grown up in just a year!" while another took to Twitter, adding: "I'm curious how the show is going to deal with Finn Little's amazing growth spurt in the last three years since those episodes were filmed. He doesn't even look like the same kid!"

While only a year will have passed since season four premiered by the time new episodes roll around in November, Finn's grown appearance can be explained by the fact that production on the upcoming series took place almost two years after filming for the previous season began. 

Production on season four began in August 2020 while filming for series five kicked off back in May this year.

Yellowstone isn't the only show to have a young actor experience a growth spurt in between seasons in recent years. Fans of Netflix's sci-fi drama, Stranger Things, were quick to point out how the younger members of the cast had grown from series three to four, due to the three-year gap between seasons.
