There has been so much controversy about it Kevin Costner in his final season of the hit drama series Yellowstone. The creator of the show, Taylor Sheridan, has done a good job of keeping the peace with the show’s patriarch, but it looks like Costner won’t officially return in the show’s final episodes, and everyone is pretty frustrated. Luckily, it doesn’t appear that his decision is impacting the story.
Last week, we reported that Costner was rumored to not appear in the final episodes, which would begin filming in early 2024, but now it’s official.
Previous reports say Costner only wanted to spend a week filming the second batch of Season 5 episodes, instead of the 50-65 days he had in the past.
Sheridan previously said of the issue:
“I’m disappointed. It truncates the closure of his character. It doesn’t alter him, but it truncates him… I don’t like car accidents. [Dutton’s] destiny swells [Costner’s] Ego or insults are collateral damage that I don’t take into account when it comes to storytelling.”
It’s good to know that this decision doesn’t send Sheridan’s story off course, and he also had the following to say about the actor:
“My opinion of Kevin as an actor hasn’t changed. His creation of John Dutton is symbolic and powerful… and I’ve never had a problem with Kevin that he and I couldn’t resolve over the phone. But once the lawyers are Once they get involved, then people can’t talk to each other and start saying things that aren’t true and try to shift the blame based on how the press or the public seems to react. I don’t know if anyone deserves it. His film It seems to be a big priority for him and he wants to shift focus. I sure hope so [the movie is] It’s worth it – and it’s good.”
I hope so too. You’d think he might give it a month or two to wrap up the character and give a proper farewell to the show, but who knows all the details of his decisions. Hopefully the series ends well in the fans’ opinion, and Costner goes on to make a really good movie.
