Yellowstone Season 5: Kevin Costner Says John Dutton Hates Weakness – “He Doesn’t Want To See It In His Children”

Yellowstone Kevin Costner

We’re only four days away from the highly anticipated Yellowstone season five premiere, and as expected, the show is hitting us with a number of teasers that have us foaming at the mouth for that first episode.

With that being said, they recently dropped a video, titled “Yellowstone: Inside the Phenomenon,” documenting everything that’s gone into the success of the show.

Not to mention, a number of actors weighed in on what we can expect in season five, and in particular Kevin Costner, who plays John Dutton.

He kicked off by discussing what drives John to continue protecting the ranch, as well as the scene we can expect as soon as season five kickstarts:

“The image of somebody making a living on a horse, there’s something kind of free about it. It’s enough for him. It’s always been enough for him. But the world’s more complicated.

As you enter Yellowstone, you realize that the family is in complete chaos. There’s just extensive pressure on everyone. John is an aggressive personality and doesn’t like weakness, and he doesn’t wanna see it in his children. It’s family, it’s a dysfunctional family.”

We’ve learned that the Dutton family doles out Western justice swiftly, and that’s a legacy that has been there since the beginning:

“It’s almost like an exposed nerve. That’s how ‘Yellowstone’ started, and it’s not stopping.

We’ve created a big hornet’s nest, and when something happens, other things are going to fall. You can’t be in these situations without there being severe consequences. And that’s the world of ‘Yellowstone.'”

And lastly, he teases that John will be as ruthless as ever in season five:

“I think the strength of this story is that we don’t take our foot off the gas. John has proven time and again there’s nothing he won’t do to save the ranch. 

He’s more than ready to make his decision, and that doesn’t land popularly.”

Kevin Costner Says ‘Yellowstone’ Is “Too Naughty” For His Family To Watch It

If you’ve watched at least one episode of Yellowstone, then you already know that Kevin Costner, who plays John Dutton, is the star of the show.

His relentless actions to keep the Dutton family name and their ranch alive and well has resulted in the Dutton’s destroying practically any enemy who crosses their path, and it’s going to be interesting to see if they come out victorious in Season Five, knowing that they may be facing their most powerful enemy thus far.

And speaking of Season Five, Costner recently sat down with Extra to discuss how wild  it may be.

In fact, he even admitted that he doesn’t let his family watch the show.

The 67-year-old famed actor told the outlet:

“It’s too naughty for them to see and they probably do figure out how to see it. But it’s got some nasty little bits that are good fun for everybody else.”

He continued:

“Listen, a lot of my movies have some of those themes, so they’re going to find them in the course of their life. I hope they find ‘Fandango.’ I hope they figure out what I’ve been doing with my life.

I’m their dad for sure.”

So no Yellowstone in the Costner house, at least not when dad is around.

Costner shares three kids, Cayden, 15, Hayes, 13, and Grace, 12, with his wife of 18 years, former model Christine Baumgartner.

He also has four other children from previous relationships, in Annie, 38, Lily, 36, Joseph, 34, and Liam, 26.

Kevin Costner Asks Yellowstone Fans Their Hopes For Season 5

It’s official…

Yellowstone Season 5 has the green light, production started in May, and if we’re lucky and there are no delays, we’ll be gearing up for the Season premiere on November 13th.

And since that initial announcement, we learned a few things… one of which is that Jen Landon (Teeter) and Kathryn Kelly (Jimmy’s fiancée Emily) have been elevated to series regulars.

That means that Jimmy, who appeared to be leaving for Texas at the end of Season 4, will also be a big part of Season 5.

A number of stars from the show took to social media to share the news about Season 5, and even the main man himself, Mr. John Dutton, shared the news on Instagram.

Sharing a picture of the iconic Dutton Ranch, Kevin Costner asked fans:

What do you want to happen in season 5?

And there was a number of different answers, but three in particular had the most traction:

Goodbye Monica Dutton

Apparently, Yellowstone fans can’t stand Monica.

The wife of Kayce Dutton, and mother to John’s grandson Tate, Monica (Kelsey Asbille) is public enemy number one in the Yellowstone world.

As far as Season 5 goes, a number of fans wanted to see Kayce leave her, and some cases, even wanted to see her dead.

“For Kayce’s wife to get shipped away forever.”

“A single Kayce to move back to the ranch

“I want Kayce to leave Monica.”

“Hopefully Monica moves far away and Kayce finds a real woman… not a ‘poor me’ victim.”

“Monica dies ! I’ve had enough of her now.”

Gee, tell me how you really feel…

At least Beth has her back:

Jamie & Beth Reconcile

Another popular hope for Season 5 is that Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) and her brother Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) find a way to bury the hatchet.

Granted, as the seasons have progressed, it only seems like things between them are getting worse and worse, but after he put a bullet in his biological father Garrett Randall’s (Will Patton) head, maybe there’s hope.

“Jamie to be exonerated by a life saving good deed towards the Dutton family.”

“Beth & Jamie make peace.”

“Jamie and Beth to finally get along.”

“I’d like to see John and Beth forgive Jamie.”

“I want Beth and Jamie to hash things up and show that they once loved each other.”

“Jamie catch a break and feel like he’s part of the family, Beth forgiving him and moving on.”

A noble wish indeed…

But, Jamie and Beth’s relationship also relates to the third and final (and rather surprising) wish for Season 5… a miracle baby.

Beth’s Miracle Baby

Yep… a number of Yellowstone fans want to see Rip and Beth have a baby, except of course there is one little problem… Beth can’t have children.

It’s the reason she wants to see Jamie six feet under since he helped her get an abortion that resulted in her permanent infertility. Yes, they were both probably too young to understand the gravity of what was happening, but either way, fans are hoping for a miracle baby for Beth and Rip.

“Beth getting miracle baby.”

“Beth to get pregnant and a miracle relating to the birth of the child.”

“Jamie dies and Beth somehow gets pregnant.”

“Beth to get pregnant by some miracle.”

“Rip & Beth to have twins.”

Not sure likely that one is, but hey, anything is possible on TV.

And finally, there were a few more random hopes that are worth mentioning. Some you’d expect and some that are way out of left field:

“I hope there is a way for the Yellowstone ranch to share the land with the Broken Rock Reservation as a win win.”

“Lots of visits to the train station.”

“I want John to find some happiness.”

“Rip beating people up.”

“I want to see Summer get out of jail and be pregnant.”

Get out of jail and be pregnant? Like get pregnant in jail? That’s a new one… but hey, stranger things have happened.

So, there you have it… that’s what Yellowstone fans are hoping to see from Season 5.

I guess we’ll find out this fall…

In the meantime, if you’re looking for the entire Yellowstone soundtrack, complete through every episode of Season 4, then look no further.
