Has Yellowstone been cancelled? Kevin Costner as John Dutton in Yellowstone

Has Yellowstone been canceled? After months of turmoil with reports of Kevin Costner being unsettled by the production schedule, and the various industry strikes impacting productions, fans may still need to know if Yellowstone is coming to an end.

Yellowstone has been heralded as one of the best TV series of recent years, and has seen the Yellowstone cast expand through various new Yellowstone series, spin-offs, and prequels. These days, the Yellowstone timeline is more complicated than you’d think. But is that all about to change?

Has Yellowstone been canceled?

The news was confirmed on Friday, May 5, 2023, that Yellowstone is officially set to come to an end with the upcoming season 5 finale to mark the end of the show.

There will be no Yellowstone season 6, as Kevin Costner is set to depart one of the best drama series around. We can’t lie — this came as something of a shock.
