‘I Would Go Back’: Kevin Costner Reveals His Condition to Return to Yellowstone

Yellowstone is soon wrapping up with the final batch of episodes, but that will be far from the end for the popular Paramount franchise. With more spinoffs and sequels planned, original star Kevin Costner revealed he would be open to returning to the Dutton land if his conditions are met.

Speaking to CBS Sunday Morning about reprising his role as John Dutton in Yellowstone, the actor expressed his willingness to return. The Oscar-winning actor also addressed the controversy surrounding his departure from the franchise and explained whether his new project, Horizon, had anything to do with his departure from the final episodes of the beloved series

Responding about whether his Yellowstone filming schedule stopped him from working on his new franchise, the actor replied: “No,” Costner said. “I did everything that I was contracted to do with Yellowstone.” The answer comes after the actor noted his departure came because he wanted to focus on his four-part Horizon project. The actor also responded whether he’d be willing to return to Taylor Sheridan’s universe. “Yeah, if I like the story, where it was going, I would go back,” he replied.

“Yeah, if I like the story, where it was going, I would go back.”

Costner also addressed his comeback on June 17 in an interview with Today about possibly coming back to the Yellowstone universe. “I’ve supported that thing and I’ve loved it,” he said of the show. “It’s been really important to me. I would love to go back under the right circumstances. I think that all of us want. For me, it really needs to be the right circumstances.” He added, “Saying there’s a chance, there’s always a chance. I love the thing. You’ve got to be really clear about that.

Kevin Costner Could Return in the Yellowstone Sequel

Yellowstone has started production on the final batch of episodes of Season 5 last month. The series had been on hiatus since January 2023 after Costner’s controversial exit, and the delay had been long enough to allow the Oscar-winning actor to return for the grand finale. However, the series will continue with more spinoffs.

Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed, three stars of the original show were reported to join the upcoming Yellowstone sequel series. Cole Hauser (Rip), Kelly Reilly (Beth), and Luke Grimes (Kayce) are all reported to reprise their roles. This way, if Costner doesn’t make his return as John Dutton in the Yellowstone finale, there might be a way for him to return in an upcoming spinoff.

Yellowstone Season 5 Part 2 is expected to premiere in November 2024.
