Yellowstone fans don’t have to hang up their cowboy hats just yet. Though the beloved Paramount+ series is coming to a close with the second part of season 5 airing later this year, there’s still plenty to look forward to for viewers. 


ET’s Denny Directo spoke with actor Josh Lucas, who plays a younger version of Kevin Costner’s John Dutton on the series, about what fans can expect.

“I texted [creator] Taylor Sheridan a couple months ago, and his response was, ‘Absolutely, we’re going to finish this with 10 episodes or so,'” Lucas said at the premiere of his new Apple TV+ series, Palm Royale. “I know as much as you do, but I think we got 10 episodes to kind of wrap it up and I can’t wait to go do it.”

As for the possibility of a spin-off featuring Lucas in the role of the Montana rancher, he added, “Man, from your lips to God’s ears. I would love it. I mean, obviously I love the world Taylor has created. I love seeing the generational aspect, the time aspect, obviously the 1800s on. So yeah, I would be there in a second.”

Lucas was also asked about the conclusion to Yellowstone by a caller during a Wednesday episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen

“Taylor is a closed book. If there is a closed book, it’s that man,” Lucas said of Sheridan. “He’s a one-man band. He does everything himself, very, very unusual guy. Most shows have 10 writers or more and Taylor is doing all of it himself. He keeps it very close to the chest, so none of us know. I don’t think a single person. I don’t think Kevin Costner, nobody knows, which is kind of fantastic because we’re going to show up, he’s gonna hand us a script and we’re gonna go from there.”

Yellowstone season 5, part 2 is expected to be released in November. 

As for his new show, Palm Royale, Lucas loved working with Carol Burnett, Allison Janney, Kristen Wiig, Ricky Martin and Laura Dern.

“Everything about this show is constantly kind of a pinch yourself job,” he told ET. “Just everyday, the cast got more extraordinary and it was really unusual because not only was there no diva behavior in any way, everyone was like out-professional-ing each other. You’d arrive and everyone would be early to work. I mean it was a really rare environment and a lot of fun.”

Palm Royale premiered on Apple TV+ on Wednesday, March 20.
