1883 Season 2 Renewed & Will Focus On New Historical Character.

1883 season 2 has officially been renewed and will now focus on the legendary lawman Bass Reeves. The Yellowstone prequel series’ first season followed James Dutton (Tim McGraw) and Margaret Dutton (Faith Hill) as they lead their family and a group of various migrants along the rough terrain of the American West toward Oregon. Created by Hell or High Water writer Taylor Sheridan, 1883 was initially intended to conclude following its final episode. Sheridan has also expanded the Yellowstone franchise with two additional spinoff series – 1932 will yet again be a prequel to Yellowstone and will center on a new generation of Duttons set during the Prohibition and Great Depression eras. Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are set to star as leads in the upcoming series. 6666 is a direct spinoff of Yellowstone and will feature the legendary Texas ranch the Four Sixes in a modern setting.

Reeves was the first black deputy of the U.S. Marshals serving west of the Mississippi River. Born into slavery in 1838, Reeves escaped his owner during the American Civil War and lived with a few indigenous tribes. In 1875, he was later recruited as deputy to preside over multiple territories that housed large populations of Native Americans due to his ability to speak several of their languages. During his time, Reeves arrested over 3,000 outlaws and killed 14, allegedly without ever suffering any serious injury.

Per Deadline, the Yellowstone spinoff series 1883 season 2 has been officially renewed and will focus on Bass Reeves. The show began as a Sheridan project, unaffiliated with the Yellowstone franchise, with Selma lead David Oyelowo set to star in the titular role. With the recent announcement, 1883 season 2 has officially been titled 1883: The Bass Reeves Story. It has yet to be revealed if any of the original cast will return for the upcoming season.

Whether or not Reeves will interact with the Dutton’s in 1883 season 2 remains to be seen. Although it is a possibility the two parties will cross paths, it is may be unlikely as 1883: The Bass Reeves Story began production as a standalone project. Although no specific details regarding the upcoming series’ relationship with the franchise have been revealed, it is possible for the fabled lawman to join the cast of the previous season.

At the conclusion of 1883 season 1, Dutton vowed to settle his family and build a home where his daughter Elsa Dutton (Isabel May) died. As explained in the series, as well in the original Yellowstone series, which sees Dutton’s descendants still living on the land, the territory was once the home of many indigenous peoples. Although Reeves primarily served as a deputy U.S. Marshal in Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas, it is possible for the upcoming show to feature an outlaw fugitive that leads the lawman up to Montana and the Duttons’ family ranch. Only time will tell if Reeves’ story will intertwine with James Dutton’s in 1883: The Bass Reeves Story as the series has yet to receive a release date.
