Kevin Costner finally comes clean about his exit from 'Yellowstone'

Kevin Costner has eased fans’ doubts about his loyalty to Yellowstone, putting a slew of speculations to rest. 

The 69-year-old denied assertions made by the show's creator, Taylor Sheridan, that Costner was unwilling to return for the second half of season five in favor of his own movie, Horizon: An American Saga, in a recent interview with Deadline.

The Waterworld star threw production under the bus, saying that after finishing the first half of the final season, they had no script to move forward with.

"You've been reading one version [of this behind-the-scenes drama] for a year and a half," Costner said to the outlet. In order to meet them for 5B on time, I left my movie. It was difficult for me because I left right when they wanted."

It appears that they were missing the 5B scripts. The actor insisted, "They needed four more days just to finish the first eight episodes." "I left early to give them what they needed to have a complete eight, and I felt bad that the audience didn’t get 10."

He went on, "It's really that easy: 101 Studios and Paramount handled this poorly. For five, six, and seven years they had me. I consented to carry it out. After that, they started gradually altering their format."

In closing, Costner reiterated his position, saying, "If the writing is there, I will be there too."

For those who are unaware, the first installment of Yellowstone's final season debuted in November 2022, and the second installment is scheduled to air in November 2024.
