What’s the Latest on All the ‘Yellowstone’ Shows?

Kevin Costner as John Dutton in Yellowstone
Paramount Network

In 2018, Yellowstone premiered on the Paramount Network, introducing us to the Dutton family, led by Kevin Costner’s John, and the land they’d fight to protect. The drama is now going into its fifth season and is part of a much larger universe from Taylor Sheridan.

In 2021, Paramount+ released a prequel, 1883, chronicling the origin story of John’s great-grandfather (Tim McGraw) and his family. It ran one season, and now, it has its own spinoff coming, about David Oyelowo’s lawman Bass Reeves. Also coming is another origin story starring Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford, as well as that spinoff about the legendary ranch 6666.

Read on to get the latest about Yellowstone and all the shows connected to it.

Synopsis: 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.

Status: Premieres December 2022

Cast: Helen Mirren, Harrison Ford

Synopsis: 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. It will account for the end of World War 1 (1918) and the start of Prohibition (1920) both of which will be woven into the story.

1883: The Bass Reeves Story

Status: Premiere TBA

Cast: David Oyelowo

Synopsis: Founded when Comanches still ruled West Texas, no ranch in America is more steeped in the history of the West than the 6666. Still operating as it did two centuries before, and encompassing an entire county, the 6666 has inspired a new scripted series where the rule of law and the laws of nature merge in a place where the most dangerous thing one does is the next thing. The 6666 is synonymous with the merciless endeavor to raise the finest horses and livestock in the world, and ultimately where world-class cowboys are born and made.
