The Emmy-nominated series from Paramount has been met with critical acclaim and love from audiences, but Deadline reports the network is looking into ending the series.

“We have no news to report. Kevin Costner is a big part of ‘Yellowstone’ and we hope that’s the case for a long time to come. Thanks to the brilliant mind of Taylor Sheridan, we are always working on franchise expansions of this incredible world he has built. Matthew McConaughey is a phenomenal talent with whom we’d love to partner,” a Paramount spokesperson told Deadline.

“Yellowstone” has already expanded into a franchise with successful prequels “1883” and “1923”.
