Elsa Dutton

The oldest offspring of James and Margaret Dutton, Elsa (Isabel May) filled in as the storyteller of 1883 preceding her passing in the season finale.

Jack Dutton

The child of John Dutton I and Emma Dutton, Jack Dutton (Darren Mann) works with his dad and extraordinary uncle to watch out for the Yellowstone land during 1923. He falls head over heels for Elizabeth Strafford and weds her in an informal (however lovely) service.

It was initially felt that Jack would become the dad to John Dutton II — episode 5 of 1923 uncovered Elizabeth was pregnant — in any case, given his significant other’s unsuccessful labor in the season finale, it appears to be more probable Spencer and Alex will be Johnny Jr’s. actual guardians.

Set up as Jack’s old flame in 1923, Elizabeth (Michelle Randolph) turns into the soul mate and spouse of the youthful Dutton. In episode 5 of season 1, she discovers she is pregnant, however, she loses in the season finale.

Apparently the child of Spencer and Alex — or, maybe, once more, Jack and Elizabeth, in the event that they consider — John Dutton II isn’t ensured to show up in 1923, however, he appears as an elderly person in flashback episodes of Yellowstone. He was once the Dutton family patriarch and is the dad of Costner’s John Dutton III.

Beth Dutton

John Dutton III and Evelyn’s just girl, Beth (Kelly Reilly) is the firecracker of the family, an unadulterated power of nature with slicing gazes and battered bangs to demonstrate it. The possible individuals for whom she’ll assent — if by some stroke of good luck scarcely — are her dad and her better half, the rancher Tear Wheeler.

Rip Wheeler

A cowpoke complete, Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser) first showed up on the Yellowstone Ranch as a damaged youngster, where he met and gradually went gaga for his supervisor’s girl. Until now, he is John Dutton III’s most confided-in man.

Everlastingly untethered inside the Dutton family and at one point alienated from his dad, Kayce (Luke Grimes) is the most youthful of the Dutton brood however the first to have his own family. He wedded Monica Long of the Messed up Rock Reservation, and together they had Tate Dutton, whom John Dutton III ultimately develops close with as Kayce’s attentiveness dies down.

Frantic to please and effectively controlled, Jamie (Wes Bentley) is a lawyer and the embraced child of John Dutton III and Evelyn Dutton, whom John later excludes when things get a bit uncertain between them. Jamie’s biological dad was Garrett Randall, who killed Jamie’s mom when Jamie was only a child. Jamie himself kills Garrett when things get sketchy between them.


When a worker of Jamie’s during his mission for state principal legal officer, Christina (Katherine Cunningham) turned out to be momentarily sincerely connected with Jamie and fathered his kid. As of season 5, they appear to at this point not be together.

Raised on the close Broken Rock Reservation, the faithful and savvy Monica Long Dutton (Kelsey Asbille) is normally dubious of the Dutton family’s aims, however, she has become fonder of them as her child grows up and her significant other, Kayce, falls back inside his dad’s grip. She has functioned as an instructor both on and off-kilter.

Tate Dutton

The main enduring offspring of Kayce and Monica, Tate Dutton (Brecken Merrill) is a daring kid who — like his dad and granddad — has experienced incredible hardship at least a time or two. Yet, as one of a handful of the Dutton relatives who appears to see the value in the land however much his progenitors, it appears to be conceivable, while possibly not likely, that the ranch will ultimately tumble to his consideration.

Assuming Yellowstone goes down that course, it would welcome some invite subtlety for the series to investigate, as the blended race child of a rancher and a Local American re-acquires the land once taken from his progenitors.
