Reports surfaced Monday that “Yellowstone” star Kevin Costner won’t commit to filming all of the remaining episodes of the show’s final season.
Sources close to the production claim Costner was not informed ahead of time about Paramount’s Friday announcement that the show would be ending after the final half of season five airs in November, according to Puck News. And thus far, he reportedly hasn’t agreed to film the final episodes that are currently being written by the show’s co-creator, Taylor Sheridan.
The same outlet broke multiple stories early in 2023 surrounding ongoing tensions between Costner and Sheridan. “Yellowstone” is set to film in Montana throughout the summer and fall, but Costner is going back and forth with producer David Glasser over the number of days he will have to commit to, according to Puck.

At least one or more of the sources claimed Costner won’t commit to returning to the show until he is satisfied with the fate of his character, John Dutton, Puck continued. Rumors suggest Costner doesn’t want to be killed off like Patrick Dempsey’s character in “Grey’s Anatomy,” who died in an F-you car crash, the outlet reported.

So at least we have that to look forward to!
