Yellowstone's creator Taylor Sheridan may know how the show will end, but Kelly Reilly says Season 5 is "Not" It.

Yellowstone's year 2022 started off with an amazing season 4 finale. Fans will get to see the first half of a super-sized season 5 before the end of the year. Taylor Sheridan's modern western is now the most-watched show on TV, but the creator has said that he already knows how the Duttons' story will end. He says he is writing to get to that end. 

Does that mean that season 5 is the last one? Kelly Reilly, one of the stars, says that the next season will be a big one, but that this is "not the end." 

"Yellowstone" is not the type of show that could go on forever. 

Before Yellowstone reached the top of the TV ratings in season 4, Sheridan told Deadline that the Duttons' story could go on for two more seasons and end in season 6. He didn't say that was the end of the series, but he did say that Yellowstone wasn't the kind of show that could go on forever. 

"You can't just walk around in circles until you get there, or the show will stop moving. So, you have to keep going, there have to be results in the world, and the story has to build up to a conclusion," Sheridan said. "You have to keep going straight to get there." 

Sheridan didn't change his mind about making more seasons, even though the show did well in season 4 and the finale was watched by more than 15 million people. Instead, he doubled down and said that Yellowstone would end sooner rather than later. 

Taylor Sheridan knows when the show will end, but Kelly Reilly says that season 5 isn't it. 

Sheridan told The New York Times that he knows how the story will end and that he is already "writing to that ending." 

"You can only hover for so long before the story stops going anywhere. You can't put it in neutral just because it's going well. I'll keep telling the story for as long as it takes, but you won't see nine seasons of it. No way," Sheridan said. 

Season 5 will have 14 episodes, which is more than any other season. The season will be split into two parts. Reilly (Beth Dutton) recently told Vulture that people always ask her if Yellowstone will end after season 5, but she insists that it won't. 

"Everyone keeps asking, 'Is this it? It must be over,'" says Reilly. "This isn't it." 

In Season 5 of "Yellowstone," Beth Dutton "holds the cards." 

Reilly said that Beth's boldness at the end of season 4 and the moves she made on her adopted brother Jamie (Wes Bentley) have put her in a strong position. 

"In a way, she's in charge now because she owns Jamie, and Jamie is very useful when he's on her side and not a threat to her," Reilly said. "Beth is a little bit reckless, and she doesn't know how to keep the wolves away from her." 

Reilly also said that when Kevin Costner's character, John Dutton, decided to run for governor in season 4, Beth had a "light-switch" moment because she had never thought her father would be interested in politics. 

"I will say that it gets harder to run the kingdom as it gets bigger. In a strange way, Beth is probably at her strongest at the start of season five. But it will be interesting to see how she walks that line," Reilly said. 

Sunday, November 13, is the first day of Season 5 of Yellowstone on the Paramount Network.
