Kevin Costner Teases Possible ‘Yellowstone’ Return After Exit

Kevin Costner has left the door open for a potential return to the hit series “Yellowstone,” despite announcing his departure from the second half of its fifth and final season.

The Horizon actor confirmed his exit last week, ending months of speculation about his future as John Dutton.

During a recent interview on CBS Mornings, Costner discussed the circumstances surrounding his departure and the possibility of a comeback if the story aligns with his vision. “I wanted to work more than once a year and it was important that I made room for ‘Yellowstone’ and made room for ‘Horizon,'” Costner explained, highlighting the scheduling conflicts between his two major projects. “But people ran through deadlines. They were busy; they had a lot to do.”

Costner emphasized that “Yellowstone” was his top priority, but acknowledged the challenges of balancing commitments. “At a certain point when you make commitments you just have to live with them,” he said.

The departure of Costner has not been without controversy. “Yellowstone” creator Taylor Sheridan has publicly accused the “Dances with Wolves” star of prioritizing “Horizon” over the beloved western series. Despite these claims, Costner has consistently expressed his dedication to completing the show, dispelling Sheridan’s assertions.

As fans eagerly await the conclusion of “Yellowstone,” the show’s future remains a topic of intense speculation. Season 5 Part 2 is set to premiere on Sunday, November 10, promising to deliver the final chapters of the Dutton family’s saga. Whether Costner will make a surprise return remains to be seen, but his comments have certainly fueled hopes among the show’s dedicated fanbase.

For now, Costner’s focus is on “Horizon,” but his willingness to consider a return to “Yellowstone” if the story is right offers a glimmer of hope for viewers who have followed the series since its inception. As the premiere date approaches, the anticipation for what lies ahead continues to build, with fans holding out hope for a satisfying conclusion to the epic tale of the Duttons.
