Paramount Boss Confirms Matthew McConaughey Will Star In Upcoming ‘Yellowstone’ Spinoff Series

Chris McCarthy, the head of Paramount Media Networks, confirmed the rumors that Matthew McConaughey will star in an upcoming “Yellowstone” spinoff series, regardless of what happens with Kevin Costner.

McCarthy said he had nothing new to report on the drama surrounding Costner’s return to the smash hit series. He did say that the most watched show on television wouldn’t be the same without Kevin and that he hoped Costner sticks around for a long time.

Earlier reports claimed that Costner was having an issue with the filming schedule and Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan had reached his limit and was ready to move on without Costner.

Costner’s attorney, Marty Singer denied these allegations saying:

“The idea that Kevin was only willing to work one week on the second half of season 5 of Yellowstone is an absolute lie.

“It’s ridiculous, and anyone suggesting it shouldn’t be believed for one second.

“As everyone who knows anything about Kevin is well aware, he is incredibly passionate about the show and has always gone way above and beyond to ensure its success.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

“McCarthy has been busy managing some of television’s highest-profile franchises, including Yellowstone, which birthed spinoffs like 1883 and 1923 and may now lose its star Kevin Costner over a contentious scheduling saga.

“McCarthy doesn’t have any updates to share, except to say that the show, which is currently the most-watched across cable and broadcast, “wouldn’t be what it is today without Kevin and we hope that that stays for a long time to come.”

“And also that Matthew McConaughey is lined up to star in a Yellowstone extension, which will move forward regardless of whether Costner returns to the original.

“In fact, it’s one of more than 10 projects that McCarthy has with creator Taylor Sheridan, whom he lavishly praises for, among other things, his ability to deliver high-quality, mass-appeal programming as others in Hollywood are focused only on the coasts.”
