[PHOTOS] ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel Ideas: Spinoffs From ‘1883’ and More
Have you heard of Christmas in July? Well, we’re taking advantage of a summer moment to celebrate/anticipate another big December event: the upcoming premiere of the Yellowstone prequel 1923.
The new chapter of what Paramount+ calls Yellowstonethe “origin story” of – which began with the wildly popular 1883 spinoff prequel – will introduce viewers to the next two generations of the franchise’s central family, the Duttons “as they struggle to survive historic drought, lawlessness and prohibition, and an epidemic of cattle rustling ; all fought under the cloud of Montana’s Great Depression, which predated the nation by nearly a decade. And it will be headlined by A-listers Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren in yet-unreleased roles.
Additionally, Paramount+ has another 1883 branching in works. Title 1883: The Bass Reeves Storythe miniseries will feature Selma‘s David Oyelowo as Reeves, aka “the greatest frontier hero in American history” who is said to be the inspiration behind The Lone Ranger, according to the official project logline. And let’s not forget 6666, yet another proposed spinoff that will focus on a massive, centuries-old Texas ranch known for its exemplary horses and cattle. (If the name sounds familiar, it’s because the ranch was featured prominently in Yellowstone Season 4.)
As we wait impatiently 1923, Bass Reeves and a round trip to the Quatre Six, we can’t help but dream of this other avenues that executive producer Taylor Sheridan & Co. could take to expand the Yellowstone universe. So the list below is full of ideas for even more spinoffs we’d love to see.
