BREAKING: ‘Lawmen: Bass Reeves’ and ‘1883’ Season 2 Release Date, Cast Info, and News

The Yellowstone franchise has many stories to tell, including the story of the historic figure Bass Reeves.

Before viewers could dive deep into the rich history of the Dutton family in the Yellowstone prequel 1883 (which premiered in December 2021) and 1923 (which aired in December 2022 and got a season 2 renewal), news broke that creator Taylor Sheridan was already working on another project about the “greatest frontier hero.” After 1883 showcased how John Dutton (Kevin Costner)’s great-great-grandfather James Dutton (Tim McGraw) made the journey from Tennessee to Montana, many were heartbroken to see that it was Elsa (Isabel May)’s death that landed the family in Paradise Valley.

Although 1883 was originally supposed to be a limited series comprised of 10 hour-long episodes and Bass Reeves would be season 2, different plans were recently revealed for a new anthology series called Lawmen: Bass Reeves. The new show is being considered an “offshoot” of 1883, starring actor David Oyelowo. If this sounds intriguing, keep on reading for more details about Lawmen: Bass Reeves.

Is 1883 coming back with season 2?

Presently, there’s no word on whether 1883 will be back for season 2. That said, we do have some good (and more concrete!) news about Lawmen: Bass Reeves, if you read on …

When is the Lawmen: Bass Reeves release date?

We know that answer, thanks to a surprise video dropped on the show’s official Instagram. Sharing a first-look teaser of what’s to come, the series’ social team revealed that fans can expect a release date to happen sometime this fall.

“The legend you know. The truth you don’t,” read the official caption on August 8. “David Oyelowo is Bass Reeves. Lawmen: Bass Reeves premieres this fall, exclusively on #ParamountPlus.”

Naturally, seeing an exclusive look at the next installment of the Yellowstone franchise had folks ecstatic. “Does Taylor Sheridan ever rest? 🤔,” one person asked on Instagram. “Let’s gooooo!” another exclaimed. “Okaaay! Here we go,” a different follower added.

What is Lawmen: Bass Reeves about?

According to an official press release, Lawmen: Bass Reeves “will bring the legendary lawman and outlaws of the Wild West to life.” The statement also noted a bit of history, mentioning Bass as “the greatest frontier hero in American history” who captured many criminals without ever getting hurt.

According to History.com, he was born enslaved in 1838 in Arkansas and eventually became known as a defender of “Indian Territory,” which is known today as Oklahoma. At the time, the Native American tribes Cherokee, Seminole, Creek, Choctaw and Chickasaw ruled the region. When he accepted the job offer, Bass became the first Black deputy U.S. marshal west of the Mississippi. Reports claim that he arrested more than 3,000 people and killed 14 without getting injured once. It’s also said that he inspired the fictional character the Lone Ranger.

“As the first Black deputy U.S. marshal west of the Mississippi River, Reeves’ story is monumental, and this limited series will bring to light one of the greatest frontier heroes in our country’s history,” said Chris McCarthy, President and CEO of the MTV Entertainment Group, in September 2021, per Deadline. “We can’t wait to give audiences an exclusive look into his strength, perseverance and absolutely remarkable story,” added David Glasser, CEO of 101 Studios.

Will Tim McGraw and Faith Hill be in Lawmen: Bass Reeves?

It’s tough to say if David Oyelowo’s Bass will cross paths with Tim McGraw’s James Dutton. While Tim and Faith Hill’s names haven’t been officially announced as part of the cast, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to think the couple could show up. Nonetheless, it doesn’t seem likely at this point.

“As far as Bass Reeves goes, that’s a parallel world [with 1883] … When I’m casting I’m seeking the great actors of our generation and David Oyelowo is a once-a-generation talent,” Taylor said in an Instagram video posted in February 2022.
