The news was announced on Tuesday by Tanya Giles, Chief Programming Officer for ViacomCBS Streaming, according to People.com.
Additionally, the network confirmed that another Yellowstone spinoff – 1932 – is coming down the pipeline. People reports that the new series will “follow a new generation of Dutton family members.”
“The incredible storytelling and stellar performances behind 1883 have fueled phenomenal new records for Paramount+,” said Giles. “Promoting the series through linear sampling on the Paramount Network during their latest record-breaking season of Yellowstone further enabled us to introduce Sheridan’s loyal audience to this fantastic new series. We look forward to bringing fans even more of the Duttons’ origin story.”
Additionally, Nielsen reported that the premiere drew in 4.9 million total views in Live+Same Day, more than doubling the previous viewership record, and marking the biggest new series premiere on cable since 2015’s Into The Badlands and The Walking Dead.
