Kevin Costner answers burning question about whether he'll be in final season of Yellowstone

Kevin Costner has finally answered the question fans most want to know about the final season of "Yellowstone"--sort of.

Costner said he would like to be in the second part of season five of the popular show, but said he didn't know if it would work out for him to do so.

"I'd like to be able to do it, but we haven't been able to — I'm not sure how it's being worked out," he told Entertainment Tonight at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

"I've loved making that series," he went on. "I made five seasons of it. I thought I was going to make seven [seasons] but right now we're at five. So how it works out — I hope it does — but they've got a lot of different shows going on."

Awaiting production

The final part of the season is not yet in production with yet another spinoff featuring Matthew McConaughey getting underway.

"Maybe this will circle back to me. If it does, and I feel really comfortable with [it], I'd love to do it," Costner told ET.

Costner plays John Dutton on the series, and the character was most recently in a battle with his son Jamie, who wants him out as governor.

There were rumors Costner wouldn't appear in the second half of season five due to scheduling conflicts and a rumored dispute over extra time needed to shoot the episodes.

Costner's vision

Costner said he was offered $24 million to shoot seasons 5 through 7 before the production schedule began to conflict with his upcoming project, Horizon: An American Saga."

Costner said he would like to see Dutton ride off into the sunset, but that Creator Taylor Sheridan might have other ideas.

"Well, you know, he needs to be proactive in what happens," Costner told ET of his character. "And I've kind of had my own fantasy how it might be, but that's Taylor's thing. I said as much to him, you know, a while back. Maybe he doesn't remember. I had thoughts how it could happen, but we just have to see."

Ian Bohen, who plays Ryan on the series, told Entertainment Tonight in March that the second part of season 5 would have six episodes and would start shooting in May or June.

It is expected to begin airing in November or December, and the season and series finale could coincide with the 2025 Super Bowl.

"And that will be the end of an era," Bohen said, noting that he had not seen any scripts yet.
