Yellowstone” stars Piper Perabo and Lainey Wilson weighed in on reports that the hit series could come to an end after Season 5 amid rumors that Kevin Costner’s leaving the show.

During the Billboard Women in Music awards gala on Wednesday, Perabo and Wilson each talked briefly about the “drama” but admitted they didn’t know much about the status of the show’s 68-year-old star, Fox News reported.

“I mean, there’s always a lot of drama when it comes to ‘Yellowstone,'” Perabo said. “Don’t believe everything you hear.”

“He’s [Costner] such a movie star, and it’s so inspiring to be around an actor like that,” she added.

When pressed further, the actress said Taylor Sheridan, the creator of the hit series, “knows to play it really close to the vest, and I know better than to speak outside the ranch, but I’m excited to see what happens next.”

Wilson, who is also a country singer, has never actually worked with Costner but said, “from everything I’ve heard about the man, he’s just as kind as he is talented.”

“You know what, I don’t know much, but I have a feeling they’re going to end it the right way, and there’s gonna be more of it,” she added. “And I’m hoping I’m gonna be back in it!”

Costner’s attorney, Marty Singer, has denied the reports, calling them “ridiculous,” the outlet noted.


“The idea that Kevin was only willing to work one week on the second half of season 5 of ‘Yellowstone’ is an absolute lie,” Singer shared previously. “It’s ridiculous — and anyone suggesting it shouldn’t be believed for one second. 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.”

Paramount Network has also slammed the rumors about Costner, saying, “We have no news to report. Kevin Costner is a big part of ‘Yellowstone,’ and we hope that’s the case for a long time to come.”
