Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone franchise is aiming to go from strength to strength following the end of its main series, but things could already be getting bumpy for its next major project, as the three leads and the studio have reportedly reached an impasse over salaries. According to Puck News, the Yellowstone trio Kelly Reilly (Bethany “Beth” Dutton), Cole Hauser (Rip Wheeler), and Luke Grimes (Kayce Dutton) are expected to return for a sequel series, but the project could already be in major trouble as the three stars have not yet signed on and are looking for a pay rise.

As per the report, Reilly, Hauser, and Grimes, who would lead the sequel show following the much-publicized departure of Kevin Costner, have asked for significant raises for the next show and “It’s getting ugly.” Both Reilly and Hauser have arguably become the faces of the Yellowstone universe now that Costner is gone, with the stars looking for around $1.25 million per episode.

Such a paycheck would make them some of the highest-paid actors on TV, but given the success of Yellowstone, and the studio’s desire to continue to expand the show into spinoffs, they would surely be worth every cent.

Despite this, the negotiations have reportedly become difficult, with the company putting on the pressure and setting a deadline for when a decision and a deal must be made. Should a deal not materialize, it has been said that the series could move forward without them, though this would surely come as a major blow for the project and the idea of the original stars acting as a “bridge” between the old and the new.
