Actor Kevin Costner mentioned on Monday’s TODAY show that he would consider returning to the popular Western series “Yellowstone” if the opportunity aligns with the right circumstances. The 69-year-old star expressed his ongoing support and fondness for the Taylor Sheridan drama, emphasizing the importance of the project to him. Costner acknowledged his interest in reprising his role as family patriarch John Dutton, despite previous contract negotiations, including unexpected developments in the show’s production schedule.

Following speculation surrounding Kevin Costner’s departure from the series, Paramount released a statement in February 2023 affirming his significant role in “Yellowstone” and expressing hope for his continued involvement. Alongside his commitment to the show, Costner was deeply involved in his personal passion project, “Horizon,” a trilogy of Western films where he serves as writer, producer, director, and lead actor.

“When they suddenly planned to produce eight more episodes in addition to the eight already scheduled,” Costner explained, “I pointed out my commitment to ‘Horizon’ under contract, with investments and personnel involved. There was skepticism about my ability to proceed, but I was resolute regardless of perceptions.”

In the meantime, Costner’s self-financed passion project, “Horizon: An American Saga Chapter 1,” has encountered challenges since its Cannes premiere. The film will begin its nationwide theatrical release on June 28, with the second installment following on August 16. Currently, the first chapter holds a 43% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
