It is never good to learn that your favorite show is set to cease or, worse yet, be canceled.

It tears my heart once more every time I read or hear that one of the many shows I’ve grown to adore is moving close to its last curtain. You’d think by now I’d had enough disappointment to be able to accept it and look forward to learning something new, but I haven’t.

I’m fairly confident that I’m not the only one who panicked when reports regarding the upcoming season of the well-liked Western series Yellowstone started circulating last week. I guess I could also say there is no future.

Following the conclusion of its fifth season, which is almost at its midway point, the Paramount hit is anticipated to complete its run. This seems to have almost been officially announced.

The reasons behind the predicament are the subject of much speculation. Considering how popular Yellowstone is and how it has established a cult following a five-season renewal would most likely not be met with any opposition.

It appears to be ending prematurely because the show’s creator, Taylor Sheridan, and actor, Kevin Costner, are apparently at differences.

The publication recently received information from someone who claimed that Sheridan and Costner’s rivalry intensified because “certain people in charge of the production developed a God complex.”

According to rumors, Hollywood’s biggest star, Costner’s displeasure with the show’s general direction was the main issue. The Daily Mail claims that after raising his concerns, Costner, an executive producer on Yellowstone, was advised to “stick to acting.”

The insider said that Kevin will always be appreciative of Yellowstone and proud of it and that he considers the cast to be like family.

He was instructed to stick to acting and informed that Yellowstone was departing from its intended course.

The New York Post also said that Costner intended to reduce his workload for the fifth season of the Western so he could spend more time on other projects.

As with every showrunner and major performer, there is respect but sometimes friction, a source told the Washington Post.

It is believed that 68-year-old Costner only expected to film for one week on the second half of season five of Yellowstone after cutting back on his work on the first half. According to a February article from Deadline, the Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves protagonist needs more time to focus on his upcoming movie, Horizon.

However, the actor’s lawyer Marty Singer denied rumors that Costner had tried to reduce his workload, saying: “As everyone who knows anything about Kevin is well aware, he is incredibly passionate about the show and has always gone way above and beyond to ensure its success.”

Whatever the case, it is beyond dispute that Costner and Yellowstone director Taylor Sheridan are at odds. According to a “highly placed” Hollywood source, Taylor is the star of his show, according to the New York Post. The main focus of each of his goals is on him.

Insiders who spoke to The Daily Mail claimed that Sheridan was “overburdened” with his workload and that the director was unprepared when Costner made himself available. This might be the underlying cause of the current problem.

“Kevin has been accommodating while dealing with Taylor and 101 Studios, his production firm. They didn’t have the scripts,” a source told the Post. “They were expected to shoot the second chapter of Season 5 late last year.

Kevin has previously agreed to produce his other films. He had provided the filmmakers with his itinerary. Nothing was there to shoot.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m hoping for a solution. I’m a major fan of Yellowstone, and I find it hard to think that the show would be as excellent without Kevin Costner.
