The Paramount series Yellowstone has been a massive hit, chronicling the struggles of the Dutton family, owners of one of the largest contiguous cattle ranches in the United States, to keep their land. Now, a new chapter opens with a Yellowstone prequel, 1883: A Yellowstone Origin Story, coming to Paramount+ on Sunday, December 19. Set nearly 130 years before Yellowstone, 1883 looks at the Dutton family before they owned land in Montana as they embark on a western-bound journey through the Great Plains. The series stars Sam Elliott as the leader of their wagon train, with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as James and Margaret Dutton. They take their young family on the harrowing cross-country journey in a raw and violent look at Western expansion and one family’s dream to find a better future.
