Paramount+ Renews '1883' for Season 2; Orders New 'Yellowstone' Spinoff '1932'

Paramount+ continues to expand the Yellowstone franchise from Taylor Sheridan. The streamer has today renewed its original drama series 1883 for a second season and announced a series order for new spinoff 1932.

1883 stars Sam Elliott, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Isabel May, LaMonica Garrett, Marc Rissmann, Audie Rick, Eric Nelsen and James Landry H√©bert.

Sheridan created the drama. He executive produces with John Linson, Art Linson, David Glasser, Ron Burkle and Bob Yari. MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios and Bosque Ranch Productions produce.

Also created by Sheridan, 1932 will serve as the next chapter of the Yellowstone origin story. It will follow a new generation of Duttons during the time of western expansion, Prohibition and the Great Depression.

"The incredible storytelling and stellar performances behind 1883 have fueled phenomenal new records for Paramount+," said Tanya Giles, Chief Programming Officer, Paramount+. "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 Dutton's origin story."

"While most shows franchise near the end of their run, we seized the opportunity to franchise in real time, to drive record growth for both streaming and linear properties, proving the power of ViacomCBS' differentiated model," added Chris McCarthy, President and CEO, ViacomCBS Media Networks and MTV Entertainment Studios. "With the brilliant mind and gifted storytelling of Taylor Sheridan, we have created an entirely new world to explore with 1883 while expanding Yellowstone, and with 1932 we will open up a new chapter in this rapidly growing universe."
