'Yellowstone' Fans Shocked at Series' Reported Demise
Yellowstone is reportedly coming to an end. On Monday, Deadline reported that Yellowstone would be ending and another Dutton-centric series, starring Matthew McConaughey, would be produced in its place. Naturally, fans of the popular drama series had plenty to say about this shocking news on social media.
According to Deadline, Yellowstone's reported ending has much to do with its star, Kevin Costner. The actor reportedly agreed to 65 days of shooting at first. However, Costner, who portrays patriarch John Dutton, limited himself to 50 days of shooting. When it came to the second half of Season 5, which is currently airing, Costner only wanted to film for a week. Due to the scheduling disagreements with the show's main star, Taylor Sheridan, Paramount Network, and Paramount Global are reportedly moving forward with ending Yellowstone in its current form.
Understandably, the news of Yellowstone's possible ending left fans everywhere shocked. They soon flocked to social media to share their frustrations over this update.

The Paramount Network did release a statement about the news, which read, "We have no news to report. Kevin Costner is a big part of Yellowstone and we hope that's the case for a long time to come. Thanks to the brilliant mind of Taylor Sheridan, we are always working on franchise expansions of this incredible world he has built. Matthew McConaughey is a phenomenal talent with whom we'd love to partner."prevnext
