<p id=”par-9_47″>“[<em>Yellowstone</em>] was something that really changed me. I loved it,” he said. “And I know you loved it. And I just wanted to let you know that I won’t be returning. I love the relationship we’ve been able to develop, and I’ll see you at the movies.”</p>

<p id=”par-10_25″>In April, Costner still seemed to be holding out hope that he might be able to make future appearances on the gritty frontier drama work. </p>

<p id=”par-11_78″>“I’d like to be able to do it but we haven’t been able to,” he told <a href=”” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>ET</a>. “…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.”</p>

<p id=”par-12_14″><em>Yellowstone </em>Season 5B premieres Sunday, Nov. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Paramount Network. </p>
