Fans were eager for the arrival of Yellowstone Season 4, but the announcement of prequel Y:1883 has people even hungrier.

It’s exciting times in the Yellowstone universe. Both Season 4 and Y:1883 are expected to drop sometime in 2021, which is welcome after an understandably quiet 2020. The sooner the Duttons come back into our lives, the better.

But in the meantime, there remain plenty of questions about both shows, especially Y:1883. Fans were hoping to get an expanded trailer during Super Bowl LV. But it was a replay of the teaser that you can watch below, much to our chagrin.

“I don’t care if you live or die, but should you live, you tell them about me,” the grisly narrator says over the clip.

In the days since, your friends here at Outsider have been working diligently. We want to get every morsel of information on the upcoming prequel. So far, though, those have been few and far between.

This includes the fact that we haven’t caught wind of who the new cast will contain. Certainly, a prequel will feature a whole new slate of characters. However, there is no current news about a potential cast. Yet.

That being said, it’s still important to pick apart everything we can to get an idea. If show creator Taylor Sheridan is going to hold out on us, we can at least use the information we have to get an idea.

Yellowstone Prequel Y:1883: What We Know So Far

An understated but crucial difference between Yellowstone and the upcoming prequel is going to be tightly woven with the rollout of Paramount+, a new streaming service. Mentions of the service are all over the recent press releases, and it’s clear the platform is the native home of Y:1883.

In a statement from Sheridan, the show creator said:

“I am excited to continue the story of ‘Yellowstone’ and thank you to Chris, Keith, and David for allowing me to keep on expanding the family for the fans.”

Further, the show synopsis says that Y:1883 will look to follow “the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It 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.”
