Part 2 of the fifth season is currently underway, but it’s hit a bump in the road as a result of alleged behind-the-scenes drama with Kevin Costner. He’s been working on his four-part Western epic Horizon, which reportedly caused issues with Sheridan.

Rumors started circulating about the possibility of the show ending with Season 5 and Matthew McConaughey becoming the new lead of the franchise in another show.

While Costner’s lawyer denied the allegations, Paramount recently confirmed the end of Yellowstone while announcing the next untitled series.

In a statement, Chris McCarthy, president & CEO of Showtime and MTV Entertainment Studios, said: “Yellowstone has been the cornerstone on which we have launched an entire universe of global hits – from 1883 to Tulsa King, and I am confident our sequel will be another big hit, thanks to the brilliant creative mind of Taylor Sheridan and our incredible casts who bring these shows to life.”

David Glasser, CEO of 101 Studios, also said: “The Dutton story continues, picking up where Yellowstone leaves off in another epic tale. We are thrilled to bring this new journey to audiences around the world.”

“That’s going to be problematic. He has a lane that he operates in that is not as expansive as some would want it to be. And he won’t change.”

Costner continued: “I was only going to do one season, but I’ve done this many,” Costner said. “I give everything I can to what I’m doing.”

As for who could make it out of Yellowstone’s final season, Wes Bentley predicted a “crazy bloodbath” in the last episodes.
