Yellowstone Sequel Series: Latest Cast News and Information

Taylor Sheridan’s immensely successful “Yellowstone” franchise continues to expand, with a sequel series already announced to follow the original as it concludes. Debuting in 2018, “Yellowstone” chronicles the lives of the powerful Dutton family, a wealthy ranching clan owning the largest ranch in the United States. The family is led by patriarch John Dutton (Kevin Costner), who battles to protect his family’s homestead against corrupt politicians, strict government regulations, and an encroaching modern world.

Combining the elements of gripping crime dramas with the opulence of classic Western adventures, “Yellowstone” became a TV institution almost overnight. It quickly spawned several spinoffs, and Taylor Sheridan’s TV universe has rapidly expanded over the five-season run of the original series.

The behind-the-scenes drama involving series star Kevin Costner has overshadowed the final season of the landmark series, but fans are already looking to the future as “Yellowstone” concludes with Season 5, Part 2. While other shows have explored the past, the upcoming “Yellowstone” sequel will continue the story in the present day.

Though little is known about the sequel series, the latest news suggests that several original cast members will return. According to a new report, “Yellowstone” stars Cole Hauser, Kelly Reilly, and Luke Grimes have signed on for the sequel and have reportedly resolved previous pay disputes. Hauser, Reilly, and Grimes are expected to reprise their roles as Rip Wheeler, Beth Dutton, and Kayce Dutton, respectively. They are the only original actors announced thus far, and the report does not comment on the potential involvement of Matthew McConaughey or Michelle Pfeiffer.

Amid the shuffle of the “Yellowstone” Season 5 drama involving Kevin Costner’s exit, a sequel series was announced to pick up after the events of the original series. That report came in May 2023, but little information has surfaced about the project since.

With “Yellowstone” Season 5 being split into two parts and delayed, it’s unclear if plans have changed regarding the sequel. However, recent updates about original cast members returning suggest that work is still progressing behind the scenes.

The reported returning cast members include:
