The hit Yellowstone prequel TV show has been renewed for a second season on the streaming service Paramount Plus. The drama series continues to examine the Western universe that was introduced in the Kevin Costner-starring Yellowstone series as well as the Dutton family’s past before those events.
Many fans will be curious to see what drama will play out in the upcoming season after a nail-biting season 1 conclusion that witnessed the deaths of several important characters. So buckle up, because we’ve got all the stuff you need to be ready for the second season of 1883, including the premiere date, the storyline, and the cast announcements.
Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Sam Elliott, and Isabel May are among a huge ensemble cast of actors that appear in the first season of 1883. Taylor Sheridan, who also developed Yellowstone, is the creator of the series.
1883 Season 2 Release Date
Even while we know there will be additional material, there is no word on when it will be released or even whether production has begun, so it’s probable we’ll have to wait until 2023 to see more from 1883.
Curiously, despite the fact that further episodes of 1883 have been commissioned, Paramount has refrained from calling it an official season 2 in favour of referring to the next 1883 episodes as a part of an anthology series. The following stage of the Yellowstone prequel voyage will be divided into two presentations, one titled 1923 and the other 1883, to further complicate matters: Story of Bass Reeves
We don’t yet know when these series will be launched. Although 1883: The Bass Reeves Story’s first season premiered in December 2021, it is doubtful that 1923 or 1883: The Bass Reeves Story would be completed before 2023.
1883 Season 2 Cast
As was already reported, David Oyelowo is the sole cast member for 1883: The Bass Reeves Story who has been officially confirmed. We only know that Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are dating in 1923. Ford has nearly solely acted in films throughout his career, but he just signed up for an Apple TV series and this Yellowstone prequel, ushering in a new era in his career.
Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will return for further episodes of 1883, but because there was never a plan for more than one season, they shouldn’t be too startled or upset.
1883 Season 2 Plot
Deadline reported in May 2022 that the second season of 1883 will not continue the story of the fictitious Duttons but instead would centre on a real-life historical figure named Bass Reeves. Legendary lawman Bass Reeves served as the U.S. Marshals’ first Black deputy. He was able to speak many Native American languages, apprehended over 3,000 outlaws, murdered 14, and purportedly never once suffered a major injury. He is credited as being the model for The Lone Ranger.
There have been announced further Yellowstone prequels and spin-offs in addition to 1883: The Bass Reeves Story. There is also 1923, which will include Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren as further Dutton forebears but was confusingly once known as 1932. “1923 focuses on the Dutton family’s next two generations as they struggle to survive historic drought, lawlessness and prohibition, and an epidemic of cattle theft; all battled beneath the cloud of Montana’s great depression, which preceded the nation by almost a decade.” according to Paramount.
