Kevin Costner isn’t coming again to Yellowstone after season 5, based on a report from Leisure Tonight. The star, who helped flip Yellowstone right into a phenomenon, will reportedly depart the collection after the season that’s at present in manufacturing.
This reported cut up comes after months of rumors and experiences of feuds behind the scenes of one of the fashionable exhibits on tv. Based on experiences, the collection co-creator Taylor Sheridan had issues over Costner’s dedication to the filming of Yellowstone’s fifth season.
Half 1 of Yellowstone’s fifth season has already aired, however the second half hasn’t been accomplished and doesn’t have a launch date but — and based on Leisure Tonight, it’s unclear when the forged and crew will return to work on the brand new episodes in any respect. Among the many rumors about Costner’s dedication to filming half 2 of the season was that he solely made himself out there for one week of filming, one thing Costner’s lawyer denied.
Regardless of Costner’s simple star energy and its key position in getting Yellowstone off the bottom, the collection, and Taylor Sheridan’s bigger TV empire, has since gone far past its unique star. The Yellowstone universe alone has 5 spinoff collection thus far, with stars like Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren, and extra on the best way, together with a collection starring Matthew McConaughey.
Nonetheless, with manufacturing stalled on season 5’s second half, it stays to be seen what Sheridan and his group’s answer might be for coping with Costner’s obvious absence from the Yellowstone universe’s flagship present — or even when that present will proceed with out its first large star.
