Fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Season 4 Premiere of Yellowstone. However, Taylor Sheridan is giving them something else to look forward to. The writer, as well as executive producer of the hit drama, has just signed a massive deal to film a prequel to the Yellowstone series. ViacomCBS and MTV Entertainment Group are not only extending their deal with the series’ creator, but they are also approving the prequel series. The series entitled Y:1883 will be released on Paramount+. Paramount Network is releasing a teaser for the new series during Superbowl LV on Sunday, February 7th.
Y: 1883 follows the Dutton family as they journey westward through the Great Plains toward the final frontier of America. The Dutton family is pulling themselves out of poverty and starting a new life in America’s promise land of Montana.
Chris McCarthy, president of MTV Entertainment, speaks of the nine-figure deal made with Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan. He says:
“Taylor Sheridan is a visionary creative whose work has reinvented genres and amassed fan bases around the globe; we are thrilled he calls ViacomCBS and MTV Entertainment his home. We couldn’t be more excited to build upon our partnership with him, expand the Yellowstone universe and showcase Taylor’s boundless talent across all of our brands and platforms.”
Sheridan expressed his gratitude by saying:
“I am excited to continue the story of Yellowstone and thank you to Chris, Keith and David for allowing me to keep on expanding the family for the fans.”
Taylor Sheridan is executively producing the Yellowstone prequel. John Linson, Art Linson, David Glasser, David Hutkin as well as Bob Yari will also produce the series. David Glasser, CEO of 101 Studios, had positive words to say about the five-year deal made with Taylor Sheridan:
“Taylor Sheridan is a master at world-building and has a singular voice that makes him one of today’s standout creators making must-watch content. Our mission at 101 is to produce content that provokes culture conversations with renowned creators at the helm of our projects, and that is exactly what we envision for this collaboration. This deal is an extension of our longstanding relationship with both ViacomCBS, MTV Entertainment Group and Taylor and we are very much looking forward to our future projects.”
Yellowstone fans are sure to be excited when the preview of Y:1883 drops Sunday. However, fans are getting a small taste of what is to come. A short teaser has been released of a man speaking who we can only assume is John Dutton Sr.
Superbowl LV kicks off Sunday at 6:30 ET between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Be sure to tune in and look for the all-new sneak peek of Y:1883 during the Superbowl. This is something you are not going to want to miss. Check back with TV Shows Ace for more news and updates.
