Will Kevin Costner return for Yellowstone season 5 part 2? Yellowstone fans are still adjusting to the news that Yellowstone is ending, set to be replaced by a sequel series starring Matthew McConaughey.

Of course, there is a more optimistic outcome in which Costner does return to wrap up the series, and we’re all crossing our fingers for this so that the drama series can end on a high — albeit a premature one.
