Instead of a second season of 1883, Paramount+ announced on May 18, 2022, that they would be developing a limited series called Lawmen: Bass Reeves, focusing on the famed lawman Bass Reeves rather than the Duttons.
David Oyelowo, a Golden Globe contender, will play the famed 19th-century lawman Bass Reeves in the series.
Taylor Sheridan, who also created Yellowstone, has stated that the first season of 1883 was always intended to be the show’s finale.
Lawmen: Bass Reeves is set in the Yellowstone universe and will expand it, but it is not a sequel to 1883 and will not follow the Duttons. There has been no confirmation that any Duttons will appear in the show.
When Will Bass Reeves’s “Lawmen” Come Out?
The debut of Lawmen: Bass Reeves is scheduled for the end of 2023. Although the release date has not been disclosed, the teaser video has indicated the series will premiere this fall.
Here below take a first look at a scene from the movie:

They’ll be joined by Dennis Quaid, who plays US Deputy Marshal Sherrill Lynn, and Shea Wigham, who plays Col. Forrest Goodluck; Barry Pepper and Garrett Hedlund round out the cast. As Billy Crow, Goodluck will play a “young Cherokee man with an affinity for dime store books and gaudy style.”
