Kevin Costner May Sue Over Yellowstone Exit
Kevin Costner, the star of the popular series Yellowstone, has indicated that he may sue over his abrupt departure from the show. During a court hearing in his divorce case, Costner openly stated that he will “probably go to court” over his exit from Yellowstone. His departure came after disagreements with producers over shooting schedules for the series.
Costner also mentioned that he was offered $24 million to do Seasons 5, 6, and 7 of Yellowstone but that there were issues about creative aspects, which led to negotiations breaking down.
The issues between Costner and the producers reportedly revolved around disagreements over shooting schedules. Costner wanted to limit his shooting days, causing conflicts with the production schedule. Ultimately, the actor’s comments in court suggest that he may pursue legal action over his exit from the hit series.
Paramount Network recently announced that Yellowstone will end with Season 5B and will be followed by an untitled sequel from series creator Taylor Sheridan and production companies 101 Studios and MTV Entertainment Studios.
It remains to be seen whether Costner will follow through with legal action or if this is part of the ongoing legal proceedings in his divorce case.
Yellowstone producers have not commented on Costner’s remarks in court.
