Following an array of rumors about the future of Paramount Network’s critically acclaimed drama series Yellowstone, the worst has been confirmed — the hit show will be coming to an end this November after the final episodes of its fifth season air.
Yellowstone chronicles the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Kevin Costner), who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect — the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders — an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America’s first national park.
In addition to Costner, the show’s ensemble cast includes Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, Forrie Smith, Denim Richards, Ian Bohen, Finn Little, Ryan Bingham, Gil Birmingham, Jen Landon, and Kathryn Kelly.
This news comes on the heels of several conflicting statements and speculation about Costner’s future with the series, with some reports claiming that Matthew McConaughey is in talks to lead a new Yellowstone series from Taylor Sheridan. No details about the cast — new or old — or the plot have been officially confirmed, but we do now know a sequel series that continues to follow the Dutton family will launch in December following Yellowstone‘s series finale.
Yellowstone‘s other current spin-offs include 1883, 1923, and the upcoming 6666.
While Yellowstone itself is currently streaming on Peacock, viewers will be able to watch the sequel series coming later this year on Paramount Network and Paramount+.
