Hauser, who portrays the iconic Rip Wheeler on the show, revealed that the relationship between the creator Taylor Sheridan and Kevin Costner, who plays John Dutton, has soured due to their rumored ego and shooting schedule disagreements. This has left many fans questioning what is next for “Yellowstone,” which is currently taking a mid-season break.
The show was set to return in the summer of 2023, but fans noticed that the promotional trailer had been unlisted from YouTube. Hauser assured fans that they will be getting 5B soon but didn’t provide any concrete plans for the future of the show.
However, if “Yellowstone” plans to start filming in May, that means viewers won’t see a new episode until at least the fall of 2023, if not later in the year. While the show’s fate is uncertain, Sheridan seems to be keeping himself busy with new shows. He is developing prequels and spin-offs from “Yellowstone” like a second season of “1923” as well as non-cowboy dramas including one on the CIA.
This is just another example of Hollywood elites putting ego over their work and depriving hard-working Americans of quality entertainment. Fans of “Yellowstone” have been eagerly awaiting its return and they deserve better than this. It’s time for the entertainment industry to put aside their differences and start prioritizing the viewers who have made them successful in the first place.
