Find out why Kevin Costner is leaving Yellowstone and what the future holds for the classic western franchise by reading on.   In 2018, Costner made his debut appearance as John Dutton, the eccentric Montana rancher, and patriarch of the Dutton family. The fifth season of the show is now airing, and new episodes will be released this summer. Now The question is why Kevin Costner is leaving Yellowstone.  Allow www.tvacute.com to offer you all of the necessary information.

For what reason is Kevin Costner leaving Yellowstone?

Conflicting filming schedules are apparently the blame. The problem, as Variety, has learned from its sources, is that “The issue seems to be Costner’s shooting schedule, with Costner being available for fewer days as the show has progressed.” Deadline also made the same discovery. It has been reported that this season “Costner, who had previously limited himself to 65 days of shooting on Yellowstone, only planned to shoot for 50 days,”. According to reports, Costner “only wanted to spend a week shooting,” so this scheduling conflict has damaged the second batch of episodes for the show’s current fifth season.
Although Deadline reported in early February that Yellowstone star Kevin Costner only wanted to work one week on the second half of the Paramount Network drama’s fifth season, the actor’s representative has now denied those claims.
Actor’s attorney Marty Singer addressed the rumors in an interview with Puck.com. News and dispelled speculation that Coster had suspended production on Season 2. he said, “The idea that Kevin was only willing to work one week on the second half of Season 5 of Yellowstone is an absolute lie.”  A Paramount Network spokeswoman has stated that they hope Costner will remain a member of the show despite the rumors that he has left. There is no breaking news at this time. We’re glad to have Kevin Costner on board and hope he stays with Yellowstone for a long time.
The Western “epic” Horizon, a four-part feature film, has been picked up by Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema, and Costner is now directing and acting in it. Perhaps the actor’s busy schedule is a result of the days needed to film Horizon.
In an interview with Variety from last year, Costner estimated that filming the many films would take up to eight months. The shoot for the first installment began in the fall of 2022, and the shoots for the next three films are scheduled to begin in April 2023, “with the trio of titles shooting at the same time.”  According to Deadline’s sources,This has allegedly been “a source of frustration” for Yellowstone’s co-creator and showrunner Taylor Sheridan, even causing “morale problems for the other stars of the show.”
According to the article, Paramount Network turned down Costner’s supposedly one-week-only labor plan in favor of remaking Yellowstone for Paramount+, presumably starring Matthew McConaughey. With Season 5 of Yellowstone coming to an end, Kevin Costner has decided to leave.
Assuming that scenario plays out, Season 5 of OG Yellowstone might wrap up this summer. After the midseason finale, viewers and characters alike were left wondering whether or not John Dutton (Costner) and Beth (Kelly Reilly) would kill Jamie (Wes Bentley). (A summary can be found here.)
According to a representative from Paramount Network, “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.”
