After plenty of speculation, Kevin Costner is apparently set to leave Yellowstone after Season 5 of the popular drama series.
Is Kevin Costner leaving Yellowstone?
Entertainment Tonight has reported that sources close to the show’s production are saying the star will not be returning to Taylor Sheridan‘s massive series after Season 5 concludes. The outlet also stated that sources report that the Yellowstone cast and crew are still not sure when filming on the remaining Season 5 episodes in Montana will resume, leading to “a lot of confusion and frustration.”
It was reported back in February that Costner may have been reducing his shooting schedule for the remainder of Season 5 and that a Matthew McConaughey-led Yellowstone spin-off was in the works.
Yellowstone is created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson. It stars Kevin Costner, Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, Forrie Smith, Denim Richards, Ian Bohen, Finn Little, Ryan Bingham, Gil Birmingham, Jen Landon, and Kathryn Kelly.
“The series chronicles the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States,” reads the synopsis. “Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect — the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America’s first national park.”
