Kevin Costner isn’t done with Yellowstone.

The actor has addressed his status with the hit drama for the first time since rumours of his exit began swirling.

He tells Entertainment Tonight, “I’d like to be able to do it but we haven’t been able to … I thought I was going to make seven [seasons] but right now we’re at five. So how it works out — I hope it does — but they’ve got a lot of different shows going on. Maybe it will. Maybe this will circle back to me. If it does and I feel really comfortable with [it], I’d love to do it.”

Costner has reportedly wanted to approve his character’s fate in the show, but co-creator Taylor Sheridan opposes tha idea. Costner adds,“[Dutton] needs to be proactive in what happens and I’ve kind of had my own fantasy how [the character’s final arc] might be. But that’s Taylor’s thing. I said as much to him a while back. I had thoughts how it could happen, but we just have to see.”

The second half of Yellowstone’s fifth season is set to premiere in November.
