‘1883’ Yellowstone Prequel Release Date, Trailer, Cast, Plot Details
Grab your spurs and dust off that cowboy hat—Yellowstone is getting a spin-off prequel series. After months of rumors of when it will air and if it’s been shooting, a slew of details have been confirmed for the upcoming series. While Yellowstone will get a November 7 premiere date on Paramount Network, 1883 will debut on Paramount+ on December 19. The new series titled 1883 has its stars in order, too. Faith Hill and Tim McGraw will front the new series, with Sam Elliott joining the cast as a “tough as nails” cowboy.
The series made its initial announcement earlier this year during Sunday’s Super Bowl LV. Fans got their first peek into another side of the Dutton Family Ranch. And while that peek was very, very brief, we’ve pieced together a few new details about the series that should tide over those who are chomping at the bit for 1883.
What is the New Series?
1883 will take audiences back about 125 years, to the Duttons first appearance in Montana. In a new partnership with ViacomCBS and MTV Entertainment Studios, Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan has developed the series for Paramount’s streaming service, Paramount+. The new series will follow the original Dutton clan across the Great Plains as they make their way West toward Montana. Long story short, when you consider the predicaments the Duttons will be facing in Season Four, there’s apparently no good time to be a part of this family.

The Duttons of the past aren’t particularly the highly influential, rich family we’ve seen depicted for the past three seasons on Yellowstone. In a statement from Paramount+, where the series will be streaming, the company said that 1883 will be “a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land—Montana.”
Who’s in the Cast?
The cast announcements have been next level for this sequel. At the helm of the series is country music royalty, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, who will play the roles of Margaret and James Dutton. Sam Elliott will join them as Shea Brennan. In a statement, Elliott said of creator Taylor Sheridan, “I think the western genre speaks clearly to both of us. The classic struggles of man against man, man against nature, and man against himself. It’s all there, in 1883, and I’m honored to be a part of it.”

Elliott is, of course, a Hollywood legend, starring in a slew of Westerns, as well as recent critical favorites like A Star is Born and The Hero. McGraw also has a storied history in Hollywood, co-starring in films from The Blind Side to Friday Night Lights. This will be Hill’s first on-screen appearance since 2015, but she made her debut on the big screen via The Stepford Wives.
When and Where Will it Air?
Yellowstone: The First Three Seasons Limited Edition Gift Set
Slated for a December 2021 premiere, 1883 is the first spin-off from Paramount Network’s extremely successful Yellowstone series, and it will be the first to land exclusively on the streaming service. In a statement, Sheridan said, “I am excited to continue the story of Yellowstone and thank you to Chris, Keith and David for allowing me to keep on expanding the family for the fans.” In past interviews, Sheridan has noted that Yellowstone has a finite end point in line with the particular story he’s interested in telling. This launch into the past could keep the story of Yellowstone ranch alive for longer than fans were expecting though.
With that 2021 launch date, that means Yellowstone die-hards are in for the double the hijinks this year. After Season Three’s explosive finale, the most-watched cable series of last summer was renewed for a Season Four, expected to debut some time this summer. The big question is: who exactly survived the season finale to see another season debut?
