Is “Yellowstone” Ending This Summer?

Kevin Costner might be leaving “Yellowstone”, due to scheduling conflicts.  He’s busy directing and starring in a western film called “Horizon” . . . and that could lead to the original “Yellowstone” coming to an end when Season Five wraps later this year.

But the show is VERY popular . . . so if that happens there’s talk of a possible spinoff with Matthew McConaughey.

This is just a rumor for now though.  A spokesperson for Paramount said, quote, “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 . . .

“[But] we are always working on franchise expansions of this incredible world . . .  Matthew McConaughey is a phenomenal talent [and we’d love to work with him].”

Radar Online says Costner wants a shorter schedule because he is receiving pressure from his wife to spend more time at home. A source tells the website; “It’s really knocked a hole in their family life. The show is such a mega-hit, producers want it to go on forever! However, Christine wants her husband to hang up his cowboy hat, with an insider saying her patience is starting to fray…She wants a firm commitment this is his last season – or he might have to hit the dusty trail! It’s no secret that Kevin’s been getting itchy feet, but he’s not saying either way if he’s in or out. It’s driving cast and crew alike crazy!”
