Confirmed: Yellowstone comes to an end with its season five

Yellowstone is officially coming to an end, with the final episodes of the fifth season of the Paramount Network series set to drop in November. Additionally, an untitled sequel series has been ordered to premiere on Paramount Network and Paramount+ in December.

The announcement comes after months of speculation that Kevin Costner would leave the series, reportedly because of his desire to focus on the epic two-part western “Horizon”which would have seriously affected his availability to film “Yellowstone”.

“’Yellowstone’ has been the cornerstone on which we’ve launched a universe of world hits, from ‘1883’ to ‘Tulsa King,’ and I’m confident our sequel to ‘Yellowstone’ will be another great success, thanks to the brilliant creativity mind of Taylor Sheridan and our incredible casts that bring these shows to life,” said Chris McCarthyChairman and CEO of Showtime and MTV Entertainment Studios.

The exact details of the sequel series’ plot and cast are currently under wraps, but it was previously reported that Matthew McConaughey was in talks to star in a new show that would feature various characters from “Yellowstone”.

Yellowstone was co-created by taylor sheridan and john linson. Executive producers include John Linson, Art Linson, Sheridan, Costner, Glasser, Bob Yari, Stephen Kay, and Christina Voros. Both “Yellowstone” and the new sequel are produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios.

“The Duttons’ story continues, picking up where Yellowstone left off in another epic story. We are delighted to bring this new journey to audiences around the world,” he said. David GlasserCEO of 101 Studios.

Yellowstone, which follows the Dutton family and their sprawling Montana cattle ranch, has proven to be one of the most popular shows on television. The premiere of the first half of season 5, which aired in November 2022, drew a staggering 17 million viewers.

The sequel series not only allows Paramount and Sheridan to sidestep any potential issues with Costner, but also allows them to broadcast a new series featuring most of the series’ original cast.

Sheridan currently has a massive overall deal with Paramount, under which he has released the prequels to “Yellowstone” “1883” and “1923”as well as the programs “Major of Kingstown” and “Tulsa King”. It also has upcoming shows “Lioness,” “Land Man,” and “Lawmen: Bass Reeves”with several more in development.
