Yellowstone’s 1883 and 666: Here’s all you need to know about the show’s prequel and spin-off!

Yellowstone has its own prequel and a spin-off in the pipeline. Check out!


Yellowstone is no longer alone in the universe of Taylor Sheridan’s rancher shows, and it probably never will be. Prequel miniseries 1883, which tells the tale of the Dutton family’s arrival in Montana, has previously been shown on Paramount+. Prior to Elsa (Isabel May), the older sister of John Dutton’s grandpa, John Sr., being shot with a soiled arrow, they were on their way to Oregon. The Dutton family relocated there when her father James (Tim McGraw) found her a lovely valley in Montana to die in.

David Oyelowo will portray Bass Reeves in the spin-off 1883: The Bass Reeves Story. Reeves was the illustrious first Black U.S. marshal west of the Mississippi. He was a former slave who reportedly never suffered an injury while apprehending over 3,000 offenders.


Following 1883 in December is Paramount+’s 1923, a drama about the Duttons’ next generation caring for their ranch in the years following World War One and at the dawn of Prohibition. Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren will feature in that programme, and while the identities of their characters have not been revealed, it is hypothesised that Ford would portray an older James Dutton and Mirren will play an older Margaret.

In addition, Sheridan is also working on a Yellowstone spin-off titled 6666, which is set at the actual historic Four Sixes ranch in Texas (which Sheridan also owns). He explains how the ranch continues to function in much the same way as it did more than a century ago. Along with the original programme, that spin-off will be on Paramount Network.
