Kevin Costner says he's open to working with “Yellowstone” creator Taylor Sheridan again

But he still hasn't heard anything about those final episodes.

It's been a rough ride for Yellowstone fans as of late.

For starters, it's been more than a year since we've gotten a new episode of the beloved Western, which has yet to deliver the back half of its fifth season. And to make matters more complicated, that fifth season has been revealed to be the show's last after alleged scheduling conflicts that have star Kevin Costner leaving the show. Last we heard, Yellowstone is planning to air its final episodes in November before launching a new, Costner-free spinoff series, titled 2024, in December. But according to Costner, who plays patriarch John Dutton, those final episodes haven't come together just yet.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about his latest film, Horizon: An American Saga, Costner revealed that he still hasn't connected with Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan on making those final episodes. "No, we haven't [talked]," Costner says. However, the actor says he's open to working with Sheridan in the future, whether it's Yellowstone-related or something new.

"He's doing special work in a lot of different ways. He's very prolific about the things he does, and if he sees me in something that he wants to do, I'll look at it just the way I did Yellowstone and maybe we will end up doing something together," Costner says. "He likes a lot of the things that I like, and the idea of us working together is not out of the question for me. The subjects he chooses are very interesting to me. I like a lot of that stuff. Yellowstone stands as something that could continue. But that is a Taylor question. But other things that he's doing I think are really, really good. He likes the same subjects that I do."

EW has reached out to Sheridan for comment, but here's to hoping that means John Dutton will saddle up again in the near future.
