Actor Kevin Costner said he’s open to returning to the hit Western series “Yellowstone” if it makes sense to do so.

The 69-year-old star shared his thoughts during a Monday appearance on TODAY.

“I’ve supported that thing and I’ve loved it,” Costner said of the Taylor Sheridan drama series. “It’s been really important to me. I would love to go back under the right circumstances I think that all of us want. For me, it really needs to be the right circumstances.”

“Saying there’s a chance, there’s always a chance,” he added. “I love the thing. You’ve got to be really clear about that.”

Costner has previously indicated he is open to making a return to playing family patriarch John Dutton after some squabbles over contract obligations. The actor told GQ in May that he had signed on for seasons five, six, and seven but was thrown for a loop when the fifth season was split into two parts.

Following speculation over why the actor exited the series, Paramount put out a statement in February 2023 stating, “Kevin Costner is a big part of ‘Yellowstone’ and we hope that’s the case for a long time to come.”

Costner was also committed to working on his passion project, a three-part Western film series called “Horizon.” The actor wrote, produced, directed, and stars in the project.


“Their big plan was to suddenly do eight now and then in the fall do eight more,” Costner said at the time. “I said, ‘I have a contract to do “Horizon,” and I have people and money.’ I think there was a belief that I couldn’t get it mounted, but I didn’t really care what anybody believed.”

Meanwhile, the first installment of “Horizon,” which Costner financed mostly himself, has struggled to gain traction since its premiere at Cannes. Film one will open nationwide in theaters beginning June 28, while the second movie will follow on August 16.

“Horizon: An American Saga Chapter 1” currently has a 43% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
