  • Fans are concerned about Rip Wheeler’s fate in Yellowstone season 5 and the planned sequel, 6666, due to a lawsuit filed against actor Cole Hauser.
  •  The lawsuit, filed by series’ co-creator Taylor Sheridan, accuses Hauser’s company of trademark infringement and false advertising over similar-looking logos.
  •  The conflict between Sheridan and Hauser may impact future collaborations and the potential appearance of Rip Wheeler in Yellowstone spinoffs.

Yellowstone‘s viewers are wondering what Taylor Sheridan’s recent lawsuit against Rip Wheeler actor Cole Hauser means for the character’s fate in the upcoming series finale, and the show’s planned sequel, 6666. Co-created by Sheridan and John Linson, Yellowstone premiered in 2018 and, after a five-season run, will come to an end in 2024. Set in Montana, the neo-Western drama centers on the Dutton family and their decades-old Yellowstone Ranch. Kevin Costner plays the family’s current patriarch, John Dutton III, who navigates running the large cattle ranch, which borders the Broken Rock Reservation and Yellowstone National Park, while also dealing with inter-family drama.

In Yellowstone season 5, part 1, Costner’s John Dutton became governor of Montana. Meanwhile, two of John’s children, Jamie (Wes Bentley) and Beth (Kelly Reilly), are locked in a years-long feud that’s finally coming to a violent head as the series winds down. John’s third biological kid, Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes), is looking after the Yellowstone in his father’s absence, while John’s son-in-law, Rip (Hauser), leads the ranch’s other cowboys to Texas. With John facing impeachment, thanks in large part to Jamie, the ranch’s future hangs in the balance, meaning Rip Wheeler is theoretically primed to play a key role in Yellowstone season 5, part 2.
