Fans of most scripted TV shows are in a tough spot this fall thanks to writer and actor strikes, but for Yellowstone viewers, the extra delay is especially cruel. It’s been more than a year since Taylor Sheridan’s flagship story went on hiatus midway through its fifth season, but even as we wait for news of its return, we can at least take some comfort in waiting for Matthew McConaughey’s reported spinoff. big. However, now an insider has suggested that the series could be in trouble before it even begins.

It was February 2023 when Matthew McConaughey was first rumored to be starring in a new Yellowstone spinoff, just as rumors began circulating about a conflict between creator Taylor Sheridan and John Dutton actor Kevin Costner and the final episodes of Yellowstone. However, as negotiations drag on — and there still appears to be no timetable for when the project will begin — the Oscar winner is said to be feeling nervous. A source told Life&Style:

No deal has ever taken so long for Matthew. Especially after he won the Oscar, convincing people to meet his asking price was easy. Although no one from Matthew McConaughey’s camp has confirmed any details about their negotiations with Paramount and/or Taylor Sheridan — including whether the 2024 spinoff announced in November is confirmed or not. movie in which the True Detective star will appear – it would make sense that the famous Texan actor would need to juggle his schedule to stay booked and avoid conflicts.

There’s also been a lot of behind-the-scenes squabbling reported between the Yellowstone mastermind and some of his actors, who reportedly may not be happy with Matthew McConaughey. The insider also added:

The matter was then resolved “with prejudice.”

We’ll have to wait and see what happens with Matthew McConaughey’s presence among the Dutton cowboys, but at least now Yellowstone fans know when they can expect to see the conclusion of Season 5. Although the season The series’ conclusion will likely happen without Kevin Costner, who is not expected to return as John Dutton to finish his story, the final six parts of which are now scheduled to begin airing. in November 2024.
