With the immediate success the Yellowstoneprequel 1883has seen so far, the show has been extended ahead of its original finale, episode nine, which will be released on Sunday, February 20, according to Newsweek.
There’s still no final word on how many more episodes the extension consists of.
1883 executive producer David C. Glasser weighed in on the franchise:
“Taylor Sheridan has put roots down for the Dutton Family tree that stand strong and tall, with many branches that continue to engage record-breaking audiences.
It is awe-inspiring to work with Taylor, ViacomCBS and the entire team on this universe.”
It’s also uncertain if the extension means we’re getting a season two of the show, or simply a few more episodes.
Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of Paramount Media Networks and MTV Entertainment Studios, discussed the extension, and shared some exciting news as well:
“While most shows franchise near the end of their run, we seized the opportunity to franchise in real time, to drive record growth for both streaming and linear properties, proving the power of ViacomCBS’ differentiated model.
With the brilliant mind and gifted storytelling of Taylor Sheridan, we have created an entirely new world to explore with 1883 while expanding Yellowstone, and with 1932 we will open up a new chapter in this rapidly growing universe.”
That’s right, we’re getting a second prequel, called 1932.
From what we’ve gathered so far, the new prequel will show the new generation of Duttons following 1883, during the time of Western expansion, Prohibition, and the Great Depression.
We do not have an official release date for 1932 yet, but this is a really cool concept, following the Dutton family from the beginning, all the way to the modern day.
We also have the 6666 spinoff series to look forward to as well, which should premiere sometime in late 2022, or possibly, early 2023.
