Kelly Reilly of Yellowstone Declares the End of an Era and Says, “Now We Hand It Over to the Kids”

    It’s unusual for the same group of actors to work together for decades outside of daytime television. So Yellowstone’s Kelly Reilly appreciates the opportunity to do so on Cédric Klapisch’s Spanish Apartment series.

    “Twenty years ago, I got to work on a film called L’auberge Espagnole,” Reilly said on Instagram. Five years later, we all returned for Les Poupées Russes. Ten years ago, for Casse-tête Chinois.

    “Last year,” she continued, “we came back for Salad Grecque, which had just come out on Amazon Prime.”

    Reilly couldn’t believe her good fortune. “How wonderful it has been to work with you, Cédric, over all these years,” she said. “And to the actors I’ve been growing up with — what a total joy!”

    The first three films focused on the romantic entanglements of Reilly’s Wendy, Amélie star Audrey Tatou’s Martine, and Romain Duris’ Xavier. The latest film passes on the baton to the next generation. “Now we hand it over to the kids,” Reilly explained, adding, “They are luminous.”

    Yellowstone fans are eagerly anticipating the return of Season 5 of the Paramount Network series. (You may learn more about it here.) In the midseason finale, Reilly’s Beth plotted the murder of Jamie (Wes Bentley) with her father, John (Kevin Costner). Jamie was conspiring with lover Sarah (Dawn Olivieri) to murder John and Beth at the same time!

    Simultaneously, rumors are circulating that the current Yellowstone season will be the last. Another spin-off of the franchise, starring Matthew McConaughey, has already been announced.
