  • Cast returns include Kelly Reilly, Luke Grimes, and Wes Bentley; Kevin Costner exits post-season due to other commitments and creative differences.
  • The season focuses on personal struggles, particularly Beth's past issues and Rip's support, while Kayce continues to face challenging dilemmas.

Will There Be Yellowstone Season 5 In 2024?

Yes, it is officially confirmed. The schedule for Yellowstone Season 5 took an unexpected turn. Initially set for a summer 2023 release, the remaining six episodes were postponed to November 2023. The reason? Scheduling conflicts with Kevin Costner, the show's lead, but later continued to be delayed.
Regarding speculation about the show's future, Deadline provided insights into the behind-the-scenes challenges. They reported that disagreements over filming schedules, particularly involving Kevin Costner, were central to these issues. Costner, who initially agreed to 65 days of shooting for Yellowstone, later wanted to reduce his time on set to 50 days for the first part of the current season. For the upcoming episodes, his availability was even more limited, proposing just a week of shooting.

A bunch of the original stars from "Yellowstone" are coming back for the second part of season five. We're talking about Kelly Reilly as Beth Dutton, Luke Grimes as Kayce Dutton, Wes Bentley as Jamie Dutton, and others like Gil Birmingham, Josh Lucas, Kylie Rogers, and Kyle Red Silverstein.
Also, some actors who were just guests before got bumped up to regulars last season. Think Jen Landon, Kathryn Kelly, Mo Brings Plenty, and Wendy Moniz.
Now, here's the scoop on Kevin Costner, who plays John Dutton. There's been a lot of talk about whether he'll stick around. At PaleyFest, the big boss at ViacomCBS, Chris McCarthy, didn't give a straight answer about Costner's future on the show.
Kevin Costner won't be in any more seasons after this one. Entertainment Tonight confirmed it. Why? Well, it looks like he's got a scheduling clash with a new Western movie, "Horizon." Plus, People magazine says he had some creative disagreements too.
Costner spilled the beans in court, during a child support case. He talked about a tough negotiation for season five and how the offer they made him was less cash than before. He felt he couldn't contribute to the show anymore.
And, there's more. In his divorce from Christine Baumgartner, Costner mentioned that he's not making as much money in 2023 because he's done with "Yellowstone," which was a big source of his income last year.

The latest episodes of "Yellowstone" Season 5 are picking up exactly where the last one left off. Here's a quick update, but beware, spoilers ahead: John Dutton, played by Costner, has become the new governor, yet he faces the risk of impeachment. At the same time, the Dutton family is dealing with conflicts among themselves. They're also up against a serious threat - a dangerous bacteria affecting livestock, which could ruin their way of life.

Cole Hauser, who plays Rip, mentioned in an earlier interview that the fifth season is definitely worth the wait. He hinted that the end of season four sets the stage for some unexpected and exciting developments in the next season.

In a chat with Entertainment Weekly back in September 2022, Hauser shared some insights about Rip and Beth's relationship. He explained how the storyline gradually unfolds this season, focusing on Beth's struggles with her past and Rip's support for her. Hauser pointed out that Beth is dealing with internal battles, facing ghosts from her past, uncertainties about the future, and trying her best to live in the moment.

Luke Grimes, who portrays Kayce, also spoke with EW. He described Kayce's situation as being stuck between a rock and a hard place, which is typical for his character.
