Yellowstone returns to Paramount Network on Sunday, Nov. 7, and brings with it two new series from Yellowstone creator Tyler Sheridan: Mayor of Kingstown and 1883.
After the season-four premiere of Yellowstone, the network will air sneak peeks of the premieres of both of the spin-off series before they move to their homes on Paramount Plus. Mayor of Kingstown, starring Jeremy Renner, will then officially premiere on Sunday, Nov. 14 on the streaming service, while Yellowstone prequel 1883— starring Sam Elliott, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw—makes its official debut Sunday, Dec. 19 on Paramount Plus.
Sheridan has an overall deal with MTV Entertainment and ViacomCBS and all of the series are produced out of that exclusive multi-year deal with 101 Studios as a production partner.
Yellowstone tells the dramatic story of the Dutton family, led by patriarch John Dutton (Kevin Costner), which owns the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the U.S. With the West in flux, the family is in conflict with all of those that surround their land, including an expanding town, an Indian reservation and Yellowstone itself.
Besides Costner, the series also stars Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley and Cole Hauser. Jackie Weaver, Piper Perabo and Kathryn Kelly guest star this season.
After its sneak peek on Paramount Network on Nov. 7, Mayor of Kingstown debut Sunday, Nov. 14 on Paramount Plus. The series is about the McLusky family, who operate as power brokers in the prison town of Kingstown, Mich. Besides Renner, who also executive produces, the series stars DIanne Wiest and Hugh Dillon.
Finally, 1883 explores how the Duttons originally made their way out west, following them as they travel through the Great Plains on their way to settling in the wild and beautiful expanse of Montana.
“Our strategy is to make Yellowstone—the massive number-one hit with more than 10 million fans—into a global hit franchise under the incredible creative vision of Taylor Sheridan’s world building storytelling,” said Chris McCarthy, president and CEO, MTV Entertainment, in a statement. “These new series will debut on Paramount Plus and have special premiere-day sneak episodes behind Yellowstone introducing this huge audience to these new stories, allowing us to leverage our linear platforms to fuel the growth of Paramount Plus, which will stream each series exclusively after episode two.”
