Yellowstone aficionados are fervently anticipating the latter portion of the fifth season. Nevertheless, hearsays about the feasible departure of Kevin Costner, one of the drama’s prominent players, have left several people speculating on the program’s future. So, what is the current situation with regard to Kevin Costner’s involvement in Yellowstone Season 5?
At the moment, Costner is situated in Utah working on his new four-part movie anthology, Horizon: An American Saga. The anthology’s second segment is ongoing and touts a remarkable cast, including Sam Worthington, Danny Huston, Luke Wilson, Sienna Miller, Thomas Haden Church, and more.
Despite his involvement in this venture, there has been no official statement regarding his commencement of filming for Yellowstone Season 5.
Despite the fact that no official launch date has been disclosed for the final six episodes of Yellowstone Season 5, it is projected that the program will resume in the summer of 2023. While Seasons 1-4 are accessible on streaming platforms, Season 5 episodes are exclusively obtainable on demand through Hulu + Live TV.
However, hearsay concerning the program’s deferral and Costner’s behavior on set have aroused apprehensions about his future participation in the show. As per a recent article by entertainment attorney Matthew Belloni, Costner’s “headstrong” disposition on set has triggered substantial discord between him and the show’s creator, Taylor Sheridan.
The article implies that Costner has made monetary demands beyond his $1.2 million per episode salary and has expressed dissatisfaction with the production timetable.
The situation was further complicated when Costner contracted COVID-19 during a promotional event in Calgary, Canada, limiting his availability for filming. While Costner’s attorney has refuted the allegations of limited availability, the show’s network has reassured fans that they anticipate Costner’s long-term involvement in the show.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding Kevin Costner’s future in Yellowstone, viewers can still look forward to Yellowstone Season 5 returning in the summer of 2023.
As we await more information, it is evident that the show’s star and creator are preoccupied with other projects, and it remains to be seen if they will resolve their differences and continue collaborating on this beloved drama.
