‘Yellowstone’ Starts Production on Final Episodes

The final episodes of the hit series “Yellowstone” are now being produced in Montana, after prolonged periods of delay, according to a press release from the Paramount Network. The episodes in question are the concluding part of the fifth season, which hasn’t released new episodes for over a year. The previous portion of this season debuted in November 2022. While it remains uncertain whether Kevin Costner, the headline star of the series, will return for these final episodes, he has indicated potential willingness under certain circumstances.

Clearing Up Speculation about Costner’s Return

There have been recent disputes between Kevin Costner and “Yellowstone”‘s creators, particularly regarding the filming schedule and his potential involvement in future episodes. However, in an interview with Deadline, Costner stated that returning was definitely an option for him, providing that he is happy with the script. He contended that many rumors circulating about his reluctance to return for the final episodes were unfounded. It is important to note that while this topic is under debate, Costner is not currently in Montana. He has been occupied with the recent premiere of his new film, “Horizon: An American Saga,” at the Cannes Film Festival.

This series will be adding to the collection of other prequels or spinoffs related to “Yellowstone”.

Wrapping Up
