“Yellowstone” fans will get to see even more of the Dutton family this year! Those who have followed and loved the past three seasons of the western drama will be thrilled to hear of the new series on the books.

Paramount, the network that hosts the fan-favorite show, revealed a new prequel titled “Y: 1883” was on the way. The new series will fittingly take place in the year 1883.

With the prequel, fans will get to delve deeper into the Dutton family’s history. Viewers might get to finally see how the family got to own the land they run in southern Montana.

The original announcement of the show was made last Friday. The new series will air exclusively on the brand new streaming service by Paramount’s Paramount+ set to launch this year.

At the moment, things are a bit vague but what we do know is that the show is slated to start airing at the end of 2021. The series is part of a huge five-year deal between three groups.

The trio is MTV Entertainment Group, ViacomCBS, and “Yellowstone’s” showrunner Taylor Sheridan. Currently, an exact premiere date isn’t available, but “Yellowstone” season 4 will premiere in June 2021.

THE CAST

According to “Deadline,” “Y: 1883” will zoom in on the Dutton family's dramatic story. So far, no announcements have been made regarding who will be cast for the new series.

The original show’s cast might crossover to the prequel. However, it might be too much work for the actors. The original features people like Kelly Reilly, Kevin Costner, and Luke Grimes.

THE PREMISE

Paramount+ revealed that “Y: 1883” will be the Dutton family's origin story. According to “Esquire,” the network said the new series would be "a stark retelling of Western expansion…”

It would focus on how the family fled from poverty to seek a better future in Montana or “America’s promised land.” A ten-second teaser of the show recently aired during the Super Bowl LV.

The original show was actually renewed by the Paramount Network for a fourth season last year in February 2020. Four months later, the third season had its premiere.

The renewal was quite expected as the show averages around five million viewers per episode, according to “Variety.” An exact release date has also not been given for the show except the month.
