A look at the upcoming Yellowstone prequel series, 1883, has moseyed into town. Well, onto our digital devices at least.
Sam Elliott, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw all star, and the synopsis goes like this: “1883 follows 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.”
Elliot plays the group’s guide, a cowboy named Shea Brennan, with country crooners McGraw and Hill as James and Margaret Dutton – the ancestors of the character played by Kevin Costner in Yellowstone. Creator Taylor Sheridan is back onboard to steer this origin story.
1883 is set to kick off on December 19. Now, trailer time:
