Taylor Sheridan of “Yellowstone” Talks About Some Major Season 2 Casting Developments for “1883”
Bass Reeves’s life is only one of many that may be told in the Yellowstone canon.
It was announced in September that Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan was already at work on another film on the “greatest frontier hero,” a delay that prevented viewers from delving into the Dutton family’s rich history until the Yellowstone prequel 1883 appeared in December. Having seen how John Dutton’s (Kevin Costner) great-great-grandfather James Dutton (Tim McGraw) moved his family from Tennessee to Montana in 1883, viewers of the film were shocked to learn that James’s wife Elsa’s (Isabel May) untimely death was the catalyst that ultimately led to the Duttons settling in Paradise Valley.
It was previously announced that 1883 would be a 10-episode limited series, with Bass Reeves being its own series, however subsequent developments have changed those intentions. 1883: The Bass Reeves Story now serves as the combined title. This new series, which stars David Oyelowo, is being called a “offshoot” of 1883. If this piques your interest, keep reading about 1883: Bass Reeves, also known as 1883 Season 2.
Explain the year 1883.
Developed by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson, 1883 is a new American drama series that debuted on Paramount Network on June 18, 2019. Kevin Costner, Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, Gil Birmingham, Adam Beach, and Paula Malcomson are just a few of the actors that appear in the series.
The show’s first season was met with lukewarm reviews at best. Based on 22 reviews, with an average score of 7.4/10, the film has a 50% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The site’s critical consensus goes as follows: “1883 brings you a nicely produced Western with lots of familiar delights — albeit its characters aren’t always as thoroughly formed as its vast scenery.” From a total of 18 critics, it received a Metascore of 53.
Is Season 2 of 1883 Long or Short?
Six episodes will make up season 2 of 1883, according Paramount. Given Taylor Sheridan’s previous works, we can probably assume that each episode will be about an hour long. According to Deadline, Taylor Sheridan, who will also serve as an executive producer with star David Oyelowo and his wife, Jessica, will helm the first two episodes of 1883: The Bass Reeves Story.
Oyelowo said at the Paramount Plus launch event in the UK that he plans to assemble a diverse group of filmmakers to oversee the last four episodes of the series, but he hasn’t yet announced who will be in charge.
To What Extent Will the Events of 1883 Affect Season 2?
The Bass Reeves Story, set in 1883, is the story of the first Black deputy marshal in the Wild West.
Bass, who was born into slavery in Arkansas in 1838, gained fame as a protector of what was then called “Indian Territory” and is today Oklahoma. Cherokee, Seminole, Creek, Choctaw, and Chickasaw were only few of the Native American groups that lived there at the time. In accepting a job offer from the United States government, Bass made history as the first Black deputy Marshal west of the Mississippi. As a result of his accomplishment, he reportedly murdered 14 individuals and detained over 3000. His reputation is supposed to have been the impetus for creating the Lone Ranger.
