A “Yellowstone” prequel series will debut later this year on Paramount+, according to a recent Super Bowl teaser.
“Y: 1883” will follow the Dutton family as they journey west through the Great Plains “toward the last bastion of untamed America,” according to a series description provided by Deadline.
“It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana,” the description said.
The ad will run during the Super Bowl on Sunday.
No date was given for when the show will drop onto the streaming service. No casting information was provided, either.
The “Yellowstone” series has been renewed for a fourth season and regularly calls for extras in the Mountain West region, which includes pay, although there is no guarantee you will get to see Kevin Costner up close and personal, or even at all.
The Dutton family in the “Yellowstone” series own a ranch and deal with regular issues with the bordering national park and Native reservations.
“Yellowstone” is the Paramount Network’s most-watched drama series.
