There’s a Yellowstone Prequel Coming This Year Called “1883”
If you love Kevin Costner's mega-popular TV series "Yellowstone", you have a new show to keep your eye on. It's called "1883" and it's coming to TV this year.
I saw this story shared on Deadline. According to their report, Yellowstone producer Taylor Sheridan has signed a multi-year deal for a prequel to Yellowstone called "1883". They shared a very short teaser.
The trailer doesn't tell you much, but the Deadline story has a brief synopsis of what "1883" will be all about:
Set to premiere later this year, Y: 1883 follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is 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.
The report claims that "1883" will debut sometime this year. That's interesting timing considering an Instagram leak seems to infer that we'll see season 4 of the modern era Yellowstone in June this year.
Time will tell how this new iteration of Yellowstone develops, but as of right now "1883" sounds like a real winner to me. I will update this story once a firm premiere date is announced for this new show.
