Yellowstone has been canceled, meaning there are only a few episodes left to wrap up the show.

It may be a lofty task to give fans a satisfying ending in such a short amount of time.

The series is concluding because of behind-the-scenes drama, not because the creators ran out of ideas or viewers stopped watching.

We won’t be getting a full season to say goodbye to the characters.

The eleventh-hour decision to cancel the series makes it hard to be excited about the final episodes.

Kevin Costner, who plays John Dutton, may not have much of a presence in the final episodes due to his availability.

There’s no telling how the series will navigate this bump in the road.

The show has teased us with John’s death countless times, making it hard to bring the show to a close in a satisfying way.

Given John’s political career, it’s hard to imagine him leaving the U.S. for any length of time, so he may find himself imprisoned and off-screen.

Whatever happens, there’s a high chance that fans won’t be happy with the outcome1.
