In an interview with US Magazine in April, an anonymous source revealed contingency plans for the popular television show "Yellowstone" should its lead actor, Kevin Costner, decide not to fulfill his commitment to the series and its viewers.

The future of Costner's involvement with "Yellowstone" remains uncertain, leaving fans in a state of suspense. Despite being the central character around whom every plotline revolves, there is no confirmation on whether Costner will complete the remaining episodes due to ongoing production issues. The question on everyone's mind is: what happens if he fails to return?

The source disclosed to US Magazine, "They've internally discussed going a couple different ways with the storyline if Kevin doesn't return." The source further elaborated that co-creator Taylor Sheridan could introduce a significant event to justify the character's absence, or devise a strategic move to safeguard his family from a potential adversary.

Should Costner not return, the narrative will reportedly shift its focus to "the children and ranch hands and their relationships, conflicts and alliances."
