Will 'Yellowstone' come to an end after Season 5? Kevin Costner addresses show's future
Paramount’s blockbuster hit show ‘Yellowstone’ broke several viewing records with the finale of Season 4 and ended with one of the most riveting episodes in the show’s history. So, it doesn’t come as a shock that there’s a lot of excitement for the show’s upcoming edition, which might turn out to be the most important one yet because it might be the beginning of the end for a lot of characters.
Over the years, the show’s creator and writer Taylor Sheridan have said that he knows how the show ends, but he has not yet decided how many seasons it will take for the show to reach its conclusion. A lot of fans would want the show to run for another four seasons, but that might not be possible. However, the show’s lead actor Kevin Costner has a different take on it and believes that discussing the ending of the show is not something that he is interested in.
While speaking in an interview, the veteran star opened up about if he discusses the ending of the show with Sheridan or if he knows how the series comes to a close. The star patiently explained that the writers are still working on how to complete the story and the only time he will be discussing the ending is when he decides to leave the show.
Speaking with Extra, Costner said, “No, I don't, because I think probably in some way we're making it up, even if we say what we know. If we say we know it, is that really what it means? I think what comes on the page will be what I look at...I think I could have some say...I'll say when I don't want to do it anymore.”
Relax, the actor is not leaving the show anytime soon. However, if he starts feeling that the show has started to feel repetitive, then he might think of dropping out of the project. He added, “I'll say when I feel like it's repeating it. And that will be the moment when I have authorship of what it is I do.”
Even though Costner says that he doesn’t know when the show will come to an end, a lot of people believe that Season 5 might be the end. With Sheridan busy in three spin-off shows and three separate TV dramas, it might not be easy for him to carry on with a show that’s probably nearing its conclusion. Also, he might not want to drag the story to a point where fans start bashing the show for being boring or irrelevant.
The ending of Season 4 made everyone believe that there are some stories that still need a befitting end. Whether it was Beth’s relationship with Summer or Jamie’s troubled relationship with the Dutton Family, there’s still a lot to explore and Season 5 might be doing the same. Nevertheless, we are excited that ‘Yellowstone’ will be returning for another season in November 2022, and once again, it’s going to be full of action and riveting drama.
