The recent announcement of the 2023 Emmy nominations has left Yellowstone fans disappointed as the popular show approaches its series finale. Despite being the most-watched television series in 2022, both Yellowstone and its spinoff 1923 failed to secure any nominations for the 2023 Emmy Awards. The nominees for Outstanding Drama Series this year include Andor, Better Call Saul, The Crown, House of the Dragon, The Last of Us, The White Lotus, Succession, and Yellowjackets. However, Yellowstone star Kevin Costner was noticeably absent from the list of nominees for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Instead, actors such as Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), Brian Cox (Succession), Jeff Bridges (The Old Man), Jeremy Strong (Succession), Kiernan Culkin (Succession), and Pedro Pascal (The Last of Us) received nominations. Yellowstone received its only Emmy nomination in 2021 for Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Contemporary Program. Unfortunately, the show did not win the award. In May, Paramount announced that Yellowstone would be concluding after its fifth season.
The second part of the final season is set to be released on Peacock later this year. The Yellowstone universe also includes other spinoffs and prequels such as 1883, 6666, and the upcoming Lawmen: Bass Reeves. Furthermore, there are rumors of another Yellowstone spinoff in development, with Matthew McConaughey potentially taking on the lead role. Earlier this year, there were speculations that Kevin Costner, who plays patriarch John Dutton, would be leaving the series. Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan expressed his disappointment over Costner's exit but assured fans that it won't affect the storyline. Wes Bentley, who portrays the complicated antagonist Jamie Dutton, revealed that he would both miss and celebrate the end of his time on Yellowstone. Fans can catch up on the first four seasons and the first half of season 5 of Yellowstone, which are currently streaming on Peacock. The 75th Emmy Awards is scheduled to air live on September 18th on Fox.
