Cole Hauser Isn’t Ruling Out A Yellowstone Spinoff Series Alongside Kelly Reilly: “There’s Some Stuff On The Horizon”

Yellowstone is coming to a close.

Honestly, at this point, it kind of feels like the buzz surrounding the show has already faded as news broke that the show would be coming to a close following the conclusion of Season 5. And with huge delays in production, Kevin Costner not even sticking around to finish it, and handful of other Yellowstone balls in the air, it just kind of feels like the finale is going to come out flat. Do people even care how it ends anymore? I’m know for sure that Tayl0r Sheridan has lost some fans along the way because every time I blog about it, someone comments “I don’t care anymore.”

But, Ian Bohen (Ryan) has promised us that it’s going to be electric, and Kevin Costner has even said he would like to finish. Granted, scripts are already written without Costner, but there’s definitely the possibility that a cameo appearance could be in the works.

Whatever happens with the finale, the cast is hellbent on finishing show strong. Cole Hauser recently told Whiskey Riff:

My intention is to make sure we finish ‘Yellowstone’ strong, you know. I start in about 3 weeks. I just want to make sure that Taylor, Kelly, Luke, Wes, myself, everybody that has been a part of this show that we just end it.”

Of course, there has been plenty of conversation surrounding a modern-day spinoff show starring Matthew McConaughey and possibly Michelle Pfieffer, but none of those talks seem to have materialized into something concrete. There was initially talk that some of the current cast would return for this spinoff series, however that conversation seemed to be put to rest pretty quickly. There was also talk that Jefferson White and Ryan Bingham could star in a Four Sixes spinoff, but it’s been pretty quiet on that front as well.

Until now…

In a conversation with Country Living, Hauser echoed some of the sentiments about finishing that he shared with Whiskey Riff, and added that there’s an idea on the table featuring him and Kelly Reilly reprising their roles as Rip and Beth, possibly with more of the cast:

“We’ll see where that leads, but I know that there’s some stuff on the horizon when it comes to Taylor’s ideas for Kelly Reilly and myself and some of the other cast. I’m excited to see where he goes creatively with that but right now it’s just, let’s finish strong; let’s do the best we can.”

Hauser could just be repeating some of those initial rumors from last year, but I don’t think he would mention it again if there wasn’t at least some conversation happening.

Encouraging? We’ll see…

The second half of season five is slated for a November 2024 premiere. Let the countdown begin.
