News of Yellowstone coming back for Season 5, Part 2 also came after CBS announced that it would air Yellowstone Season 1 for the first time on the network starting on September 17, 2023 each Sunday at 8:30 p.m. The decision to air Yellowstone reruns in the fall comes amid the Writer’s Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA strikes, which has halted production on many of CBS’ regular primetime series, such as the NCIS franchise, the FBI franchise, Fire CountryBlue Bloods and The Equalizer.

News of Yellowstone‘s final season also came after reports that Kevin Costner, who played John Dutton, was leaving the series due to his drama with creator Taylor Sheridan. Paramount Network is set to replace Yellowstone with a new spin-off led by Matthew McConaughey.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in June 2023, Sheridan hinted that Yellowstone Season 5, Part 2 may be expanded from 6 episodes to 10 episodes. “If I think it takes 10 episodes to wrap it up, they’ll give me 10,” Sheridan said. “It’ll be as long as it needs to be.”

He also teased how Yellowstone Season 5, Part 2 will wrap John Dutton III’s story witout Costner, admitting that he was “disappointed” that Costner wouldn’t be in the series. “It truncates the closure of his character. It doesn’t alter it, but it truncates it,” he said. “I don’t do [beep]-you car crashes,” Sheridan said. “Whether [Dutton’s fate] inflates [Costner’s] ego or insults is collateral damage that I don’t factor in with regard to storytelling.”

Sheridan also told The Hollywood Reporter about how the idea for McConaughey to replace Costner came about. “[McConaughey] seems like a natural fit,” Sheridan said. “We had a few conversations over the years, and spitballed a few ideas. Then he started watching Yellowstone and responded to it. He was like, ‘I want to do that.’ And by ‘that’ he meant diving into a raw world clashing up against the modern world. And then I said, ‘Buddy, that we can do.’”

He also couldn’t confirm if the Yellowstone spin-off starring McConaughey will include characters and cast members from the original Yellowstone. “My idea of a spinoff is the same as my idea of a prequel — read into that what you will,” Sheridan said of the matter.
