Is there a Lawmen: Bass Reeves Season 2 release date?
Lawmen: Bass Reeves Season 2 does not have an official release date, but it will likely be announced in the future.
The show went into development as a prequel limited series of Paramount Network’s Yellowstone. It later became a spin-off of the Yellowstone prequel 1883 and temporarily had the title 1883: The Bass Reeves Story. However, it was eventually removed from the Yellowstone Universe and became an independent series, though Taylor Sheridan, the creator of the said universe, is still associated with the project as an executive producer.
As of early November 2023, Lawmen: Bass Reeves Season 2 is yet to be officially confirmed. However, that is expected, given the series premiered on November 5. Paramount Plus will likely wait and assess the performance of the first season before making any decision. The Lawmen series has been developed as an anthology series, with each season focusing on different legendary law enforcement personalities.
Series creator Chad Feehan made it clear in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that he would love to return to make more seasons of Lawmen. “There’s a wide array of lawmen and women outlaws from different races and creeds that we haven’t seen dramatized often in this space, stories that deserve to be told,” he said. “So we’ll see what happens.”
The cast includes David Oyelowo as Bass Reeves, Lauren E. Banks as Jennie Reeves, Demi Singleton as Sally Reeves, Forrest Goodluck as Billy Crow, Barry Pepper as Esau Pierce, Dennis Quaid as Sherrill Lynn, Grantham Coleman as Edwin Jones, Donald Sutherland as Isaac Parker, and more.
