Buckle up, since there’s more 1883 on the horizon.
The hit Yellowstone spin-off will broaden on its story for a Paramount+ restricted series called 1883: The Bass Reeves Story— however there’s a catch. While the program brings the 1883 name, it will inform a totally various story from season one, so do not get your hopes up about seeing 1883 season one stars Tim McGraw, Faith Hill or Sam Elliott
The brand-new series will star Academy Award candidate David Oyelowo as Reeves, “a legendary lawman of the Wild West,” according to the banner. “Known as the greatest frontier hero in American history, and also believed to be the inspiration for The Lone Ranger. Reeves worked in the post-Reconstruction era as a federal peace officer in the Indian Territory, capturing over 3,000 of the most dangerous criminals without ever being wounded.”
1883: The Bass Reeves Story will be co-executive produced by Yellowstone and 1883 developer Taylor Sheridan, who constantly mentioned the reality that 1883 may just be a one season thing.
