Recently, Kevin Costner opened up about why he left Yellowstone even though the show was thriving.

Costner said, “I left exactly when they wanted, and it made it hard on me…I’ve never missed a day of work. I’ve never left before fulfilling my contractual obligation.”

He continued, “I’m very open to coming back. I took a beating over these guys not speaking up for me and allowing crazy stories to come out. I’m not happy about that. But if the writing is there, I will be, too.”
