New Details Emerge About Behind The Scenes Drama That Could Tank ‘Yellowstone’

  • The report said that the underlying issue was Costner’s “ego and his unavailability” which goes with his reputation of being “either exacting to a fault or an unjustified pain in the ass.”
  • Once “Yellowstone” skyrocketed its way to being television’s top rated-drama, Costner reportedly started “squeezing,” demanding to be compensated for promotion days and that the total he makes per episode be bumped from $1.2 million to $1.5 million per episode if there is a sixth season.
  • When the fifth season was expanded from 10 episodes to 16 episodes, the season was broken up into two parts and Costner had negotiated short windows for when he would be available to film.
