Yellowstone It’s set to officially end after the final batch of Season 5 episodes debuts in November.
The cancellation of Paramount’s hit western comes after months of speculation that series lead Kevin Costner would be leaving amid rumors he had butted heads with creator Taylor Sheridan.
It was said that the actor’s filming schedule for another project left Yellowstone The crew with minimal time to complete the shoot.
Costner’s attorney refuted the claim at the time, saying, “The idea that Kevin was only willing to work for one week in the second half of Season 5 of Yellowstone It’s an absolute lie.”
It has been confirmed that Sheridan is working on a spin-off. While exact casting and plot details for the sequel are still under wraps, it has been reported that Matthew McConaughey will star.
“Yellowstone It was the cornerstone that we called a whole world of global success – from 1883 to Tulsa KingI am sure Yellowstone “The sequel will be another huge hit, thanks to the brilliant creative mind of Taylor Sheridan and the amazing cast that brings these shows to life,” said Chris McCarthy, President and CEO of Showtime and MTV Entertainment Studios.
Dutton’s story continues, and picks up where Yellowstone Leaves in another epic story. We are thrilled to bring this new ride to audiences around the world,” said David Glaser, CEO of 101 Studios.
