That’s not to say it was absolutely perfect. When Kevin announced he was leaving the show in 2022, rumors swirled about the real reason behind his exit.

“I read all the stories,” the actor admitted. “I was disappointed that nobody on their side … ever stepped up to defend what it was I actually did for them. There came a moment where I thought, ‘Wow, when is somebody going to say something about what I have done versus what I haven’t done?’”

In February, Kevin’s attorney, Marty Singer, also responded to online rumors, stating: “As everyone who knows anything about Kevin is well aware, he is incredibly passionate about the show and has always gone way above and beyond to ensure its success.”

According to Kevin, he originally agreed to participate in creator Taylor Sheridan’s show for one season as it was pitched to him like a long movie. Ultimately, the Oscar winner believes the studio wanted a show that could span several seasons.

“Because he’s such a prolific writer, [Taylor] said, ‘I can do that. I can make a series that goes on,’” Kevin believed. “I said, ‘I’ll do it for three seasons’ and I ended up doing it for five.”
