Yellowstone has only grown in popularity since its first season aired in 2018.

For example, feels like we just unpacked the whole “is Kevin Costner leaving Yellowstone?” mystery, right? (He’s not, by the way!)
But now another fan-favorite Yellowstone character has become the subject of a similar rumor. There are questions looming around Cole Hauser’s character, Rip Wheeler, and his future on the show.
