Yellowstone's future is in jeopardy, with reports of Kevin Costner's exit and the prophecy from 1883 predicting the Dutton family will lose their ranch. The series' expanded universe, including 1923 and Bass Reeves, only strengthens the likelihood of the show's end. With the seventh generation characters confirming the prophecy, it seems inevitable that nearby tribes will take back the land. This raises the question: will John Dutton's death lead to Tate's inheritance? While fans speculate, showrunner Taylor Sheridan is sure to have some surprises up his sleeve.
