‘Y:1883’: Are Any of the ‘Yellowstone’ Stars Appearing in the Spin-Off?

by Katie Maloney

The Paramount Network recently announced its upcoming Yellowstone spin-off series, Yellowstone: 1883. Now we’re wondering if any of the show’s current stars will be appearing in the spin-off.

Yellowstone fans received the ultimate gift recently when The Paramount Network announced the spin-off. According to the series description, the series follows the Dutton family “as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America.” The description says that the show 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.”

The show is being developed by Yellowstone writer, Taylor Sheridan. In other words, the new show is likely to have all the same dark, drama-filled plotlines Yellowstone fans love. During an interview, Sheridan said that he’s looking forward to “expanding” the Dutton family for fans.

“I am excited to continue the story of Yellowstone and…to keep on expanding the family for the fans,” said Sheridan.

Along with the description, the network released a 10-second teaser trailer for the series. And after the initial excitement wore off, we started wondering – will any of the show’s actors star in the spin-off series?

Will Any Yellowstone Stars Act In The New Spin-Off Series?

In short, probably not. Although we would love to see Kelly Reilly play a centuries removed, headstrong homesteader related to Beth Dutton. Regardless of who stars in the show, we are stoked to learn more about how the Duttons came to be. Maybe we’ll even get a glimpse into some of the family’s personality traits that have been passed on through the years. As perfectly portrayed in Yellowstone, family can be tricky. However, navigating family in the untamed wild west in 1883 is next level drama. We can’t wait to meet the Dutton ancestors (and watch their drama unfold) in Yellowstone: 1883.
