And Kevin Costner gave a big update about Yellowstone that caused a stir with fans. 

Kevin Costner confirms what his future is on Yellowstone

Filming is underway for the second half of season five of the Paramount Network smash hit, Yellowstone.

Season five marks the conclusion of the beloved series.

The biggest question on the minds of fans for months has been whether or not actor Kevin Costner will return to wrap up the story of his beloved character John Dutton.

Costner had a falling out with series creator Taylor Sheridan and the show’s producers.

He claims it was over the lack of a script.

The show claims that he wanted a shortened schedule to film his movie Horizon: An American Saga.

Costner finally closed the door on a potential return to Yellowstone with a post on social media.

“Hi, everyone. I just want to reach out and let you know that after this long year and a half of working on Horizon, and doing all the things that’s required, and thinking about Yellowstone, that beloved series that I love and I know you love. I just realized that I’m not going to be able to continue Season 5, or into the future,” Costner wrote.

“It was something that really changed me. I loved it and I know you loved it. And I just wanted to let you know that I won’t be returning. I love the relationship that we’ve been able to develop, and I’ll see you at the movies,” Costner concluded.

The fate of his character John Dutton will be a mystery that will have to be answered by the show’s creator.

Kevin Costner reveals why he walked away from Yellowstone 

Costner previously admitted that he wasn’t happy about the wild speculation about his departure from the show.

“I read all the stories,” Costner said. “I was disappointed that nobody on their side . . . ever stepped up to defend what it was I actually did for them. There came a moment where I thought, ‘Wow, when is somebody going to say something about what I have done versus what I haven’t done?'”

Costner told The Hollywood Reporter why he finally decided to walk away from the show he turned into one of TV’s biggest hits.

“It wasn’t tough,” Costner said about his decision. “It was a necessary decision to say, ‘Hey, okay I don’t want to really talk about this anymore. It’s time to move on.'”

The 69-year-old actor said he didn’t need to deal with the drama surrounding his situation with the show.

“I gave this thing five seasons,” Costner said. “I was really happy to do it. And I don’t need drama. So, let’s just take that drama away, let’s take the guessing [away]. The fans have been way too good to me. And my obligation is to go on and continue to make things that mean something to them.”

He suggested that fans of Yellowstone would like his new western movie, Horizon.

“Well, I’m not saying they are [going to like it], but I’m saying I think if I like it, I think they will like it,” Costner explained.

Yellowstone’s conclusion with Kevin Costner will always be one of TV’s great what-ifs.
