Is Kevin Costner Leaving Yellowstone?
Is Kevin Costner leaving Yellowstone? Could Season 5 be his last?
Fans of the show Yellowstone are not going to be happy about this. Rumor has it, this could be his last season.
Why Are People Thinking This?
Well…there are a couple of reasons.
First of all, Kevin Costner’s current film and production commitments could mean he doesn’t have the time to commit to the show. He is currently working on The Gray House, a Civil War-era film that he is producing with Morgan Freeman.
Also, Taste of Country reported that some of the new Season 5 cast members have said they have never met Costner offscreen, because his time is so stretched. Second, He only committed to the one season and has stated several times about how important work-life balance is to him and his wife. Thirdly, He has not said whether or not he will return for another season and has been seen less in Season 5 episodes.
Fans have been noticing that he has been unusually reflective in Season 5, which might be a sign that he is preparing to say goodbye.
All of these reasons are starting to add up if you think about it.
What Has Costner Said About The Show
How about we look at what he hasn’t said . According to this interview with USA Today which was back in November of 2022, Costner declined to confirm that he’d participate in another season after Season 5.
He also revealed that he’d initially only committed to one season.
He gave the statement “I give everything I can to what I’m doing, But the moment I feel that it’s not right, I’m just going to step away.”
Dang…this isn’t good news.
What Do We Know About The Rest Of Season 5
Part 2 of Season 5 will debut in the Summer of 2023. Cole Hauser (Rip Wheeler) has spilled that there will be a Season 6 and a Season 7, Beyond that, there’s not much to know about the future of Yellowstone.
