I just want to reach out and let you know that after this long year and a half of working on Horizon and doing all the things that’s required, and thinking about Yellowstone – the beloved series that I love, that I know you love – I just realised that I’m not going to be able to continue Season 5b or into the future.”

McCarthy’s statement read: “Yellowstone has been the cornerstone on which we have launched an entire universe of global hits – from 1883 to Tulsa King. I am confident our Yellowstone sequel will be another big hit, thanks to the brilliant creative mind of Taylor Sheridan and our incredible casts who bring these shows to life.”
