Do you enjoy putting on your cowboy boots and tuning in for every episode of “Yellowstone”? If so, you're probably familiar with Kevin Costner's role as John Dutton. Recently, there's been a lot of chatter about whether Costner might return to the ranch.

Kevin's portrayal of John Dutton is undeniably essential, adding a unique appeal to the show. Without his presence, Yellowstone feels a tad incomplete. So, what could coax him back into the saddle for another ride?

Costner's Explanation on Show

In an interview on ‘Today' (reported by EW), Costner gave fans some insight into his reluctance about returning to the series and what would need to change for him to come back.

He said, “I did Yellowstone for five years. What I wanted was to more than once a year. During one phase, we lost an entire year. I don't want that to happen again as it took us well over a year to pick up from that point. After five years, I decided that I need to be involved in the making. The materials and scripts need to be ready, and unfortunately, that wasn't the case.”

Expressing his bond with the show, Costner added, “I've loved and supported Yellowstone; it is very important to me. I would to return, but only if certain conditions are met. That's what we all want. It has to be under the right circumstances.”

However, all hope isn't lost yet. If John Dutton fits into the storyline well enough (like appearing in a flashback or on another ranch), there might still be room for Costner's return. Furthermore, a greenlit sequel series will Cole Hauser (Rip Wheeler), Kelly Reilly (Beth Dutton), and Luke Grimes (Kayce Dutton). This set-up certainly keeps the door wide for Costner to stride back into the show.


With Kevin Costner's cowboy hat still hanging in the stack, the question remains: Will we see Costner ride again on the vast landscapes of Yellowstone? If so, how will the series accommodate his role?
