“Yellowstone,” the hit Western series that has captivated audiences with its compelling storyline, relatable characters and stunning cinematography, may be facing its final frontier. Recent reports suggest that the series could be ending its run in its current form. However, those reports may not exactly be true right at the moment

Sources have indicated via Deadline that the franchise is being considered for a new show, with the potential of having Matthew McConaughey as the lead. The rumored closure of the series comes amid disagreements between the show’s current star, Kevin Costner, and the production team over shooting schedules.

Sources claim that Costner had originally agreed to shoot 65 days for the first part of the series’ fifth season but only ended up filming for 50 days. For the second half of the episodes, it’s being said Costner only wanted to spend one week filming, causing friction with the cast and crew. The alleged disagreement has said to be affecting morale among the other actors on the show.

Paramount Network has shot down these rumors, stating that Kevin Costner is an integral part of “Yellowstone” and that they have no plans of letting him go. Paramount is also hopeful that Costner will continue to be a part of the series for a long time.


“We have no news to report. Kevin Costner is a big part of ‘Yellowstone’ and we hope that’s the case for a long time to come.

“Thanks to the brilliant mind of Taylor Sheridan, we are always working on franchise expansions of this incredible world he has built. Matthew McConaughey is a phenomenal talent with whom we’d love to partner,” they added.

Costner recently won a Golden Globe award for his portrayal of John Dutton, the owner of the Yellowstone ranch and is is currently working on “Horizon.”

While the future of “Yellowstone” remains uncertain, it is clear that the show and its characters have captured the hearts of many, and fans are eagerly waiting to see what the future holds for the show next.
