Now, it seems there is a chance that Costner might return to the final installment as he expressed interest in finishing the show. There is no confirmation yet as the feud between him and Sheridan is still not settled.

Kevin Costner Speaks Up About Potential Return To Yellowstone


While speaking with ET Online, actor Kevin Costner just gave fans hope that he might come back as John Dutton in Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone. He shared his honest feelings about the series and it seems like he’s ready to join on board again.


I’d like to be able to do it but we haven’t been able to. I thought I was going to make seven [seasons] but right now we’re at five. So how it works out – I hope it does – but they’ve got a lot of different shows going on. Maybe it will. Maybe this will circle back to me. If it does and I feel really comfortable with [it], I’d love to do it.”

Costner even revealed he has already ideas for his character and how he will navigate through the show again. Still, he thinks the decision lies in the hands of the director.

Well, you know, he needs to be proactive in what happens, and I’ve kind of had my own fantasy how it might be, but that’s Taylor’s thing. I said as much to him a while back. I had thoughts how it could happen, but we just have to see.”

Fans are yet to rejoice for Costner’s comeback in the series, though hopefully, he gets to settle his rift against Sheridan first.

Taylor Sheridan Is Unhappy With Kevin Costner’s Departure From The Series

Taylor Sheridan previously aired his disappointment at Costner’s exit from Yellowstone. He stated via The Hollywood Reporter:


I’m disappointed. It truncates the closure of his character. It doesn’t alter it, but it truncates it.”

He also explained that he had a good working relationship with the actor until the controversial departure happened which already involved the court.

 “I’ve never had an issue with Kevin that he and I couldn’t work out on the phone. But once lawyers get involved, then people don’t get to talk to each other and start saying things that aren’t true and attempt to shift blame based on how the press or public seem to be reacting.”

Still, he wished Costner the best of luck for his four-movie epic titled Horizon: An American Saga, in which he serves as the writer, actor, and director.

His potential return to the series might spell another success for the franchise as his character remains a fan-favorite one. Still, fans will have to wait for further announcements from the actor or the director himself.


Yellowstone is available to stream via Paramount Network.
