Kelly Reilly Claims Those Yellowstone Spin-Off Rumors You Keep Hearing Aren’t True

The expansive universe of Taylor Sheridan’s “Yellowstone” series and its spin-offs can be daunting even for the most dedicated fans. This complexity is compounded by uncertainty surrounding the franchise following the second part of Season 5. Amidst this, Kelly Reilly, who plays Beth Dutton, has hinted at an intriguing end to “Yellowstone,” while also attempting to quash specific rumors about her character’s future.

In an interview with Radio Times, Reilly said that any reports about Beth appearing in a “Yellowstone” spinoff are patently false … at least, for now. “I just care about finishing [‘Yellowstone’] with as much care and as much passion and as much love as I can muster to put into it,” she said. “That’s what I care about. I’m sort of prepping for that now [and] that’s my tunnel vision thing that I care about most. And what goes on beyond that? There are discussions … Don’t believe everything you read. It’s just nonsense. But … let’s wait and see.”

Details about which rumors Reilly is specifically addressing remain unclear, but her remarks seem to be in response to speculation about a potential spin-off starring Matthew McConaughey. This rumor suggests that Sheridan is keen to have major characters like Beth Dutton, Rip Wheeler (played by Cole Hauser), and Kayce Dutton (played by Luke Grimes) return, contingent on financial agreements.

While Reilly’s comments leave some room for possibility, they should temper fan expectations. Final decisions and confirmations, especially about character arcs, are unlikely to be revealed until after the “Yellowstone” series finale, maintaining the suspense and integrity of the storyline.
