Fans of Paramount Network’s popular western drama “Yellowstone” have been left in shock as the network confirmed the show’s fifth season will be its last. However, there’s good news for fans as a new unnamed sequel is already in the works.
Rumours had been swirling for months about the future of the show and whether star Kevin Costner would return. Costner’s representatives have since denied that the actor had any disputes about his filming schedule, and revealed that he is “incredibly passionate about the show.”
The second half of season five was set to premiere in the summer of 2023, but it’s unclear if filming has even begun. Fans were disappointed when the show’s lead cast, including Costner, were no-shows at a scheduled appearance at PaleyFest in Los Angeles earlier this year.
The new sequel, which will premiere in December on Paramount Network and stream on Paramount+, is shrouded in mystery, with little information available about its storyline or cast. It’s also unclear if the new series will be a continuation of “Yellowstone” or a standalone show set in the same universe.
Despite the end of “Yellowstone,” the show has already spawned two successful prequels, “1883” and “1923,” with another prequel, “1944,” in the works. The prequels will continue to offer fans a glimpse into the show’s rich and complex universe.
As fans prepare to say goodbye to the Dutton family and their sprawling Montana ranch, it’s clear that the legacy of “Yellowstone” will continue to live on through its prequels and its new sequel.
