Between travelling and filming, an engagement is not the only thing Lucas is celebrating.

The actor, also known for his role in Sweet Home Alabama, recently revealed he’ll be reprising his role as young John Dutton in Yellowstone’s series finale.

“I did text Taylor [Sheridan] a couple of months back and said, ‘Hey man, I’ve loved working on the show so much’. He’s like, ‘Well, we’ll be back and we’re gonna finish’,” he told Deadline.

The star also spilled some huge news about the show’s highly-anticipated ending.

“I think we’re going to do 10 or more episodes and wrap up the story,” he revealed.

With eight episodes in Season 5 Part 1, an extra 10 episodes to finish the chapter would certainly be a treat for fans!
