If you or anyone you know has been obsessed with Yellowstone, then you’ll be happy to know there’s more to come for the Dutton family. Paramount+ just ordered another prequel series to the sleeper hit TV show, entitled 1932. This forthcoming installment will feature the Dutton family living through the Great Depression, Prohibition, and more, according to Entertainment Weekly. Paramount+ also shared its intention to continue 1883 — but whether that means new episodes or another season is still up for speculation. In the meantime, if you have yet to see 1883 and and the Dutton family origin story, then you’ll want to add the series to your roster of shows. 1883 debuted on December 19, 2021, and longtime fans of Yellowstone were ready to take a journey back in time to where the Dutton family’s story began. So, what’s the best way to watch 1883 right now? In anticipation for 1932, we have all the info on everything you need to know about 1883 and where to watch it below.

For those of you who are a tad bit lost on the Yellowstone craze, let’s catch you up first. The series, starring Kevin Costner, follows the modern day Dutton family and their battle to keep their ranch alive. The show has family drama coupled with the allure of the stunning plains of the west. Having completed its fourth season, the show became a sleeper hit on the Paramount Network, and its prequel series gained the same type of attention, and fan retention, as the original.

What’s 1883 about?

Now that you’re up to speed on the phenomenon that is Yellowstone, here’s what you should know about 1883. Like the original series, 1883 also follows the Dutton family, this time on their journey through the west and Great Plains. The series promises to have even more action, tension, and fire power. And a lot of that has to do with the star-studded cast.

Leading 1883 is one of country music’s greatest power couples: Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. The pair play James and Margaret Dutton, who take their young children on their travels through the west. Hill previously teased some of the steamier scenes she filmed with her husband for the series, and longtime fans of the couple will undoubtedly be curious to see the real-life spouses play these characters on screen.

Rounding out the marquee cast is Oscar nominee Sam Elliott as Shea Brennan. The actor has earned wide acclaim throughout his decades-long career. Within the past few years, he earned his (shockingly) first Academy Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for his work in A Star Is Born. Based on the trailer, we figured there would be some break-out moments from the series.

Since you’re caught up on the most important details of 1883, let’s break down how you can watch the show.

How To Watch 1883

Sadly for Yellowstone fans, you won’t be able to watch both series on the same network or streamer. Instead, 1883 has found a home exclusively on Paramount+ since December 19. While this might seem a bit thorny, Paramount+ and the Paramount Network are different entities entirely, meaning they don’t share access to the same content. But Paramount+ has options for how you can watch their own exclusive content, including originals, live TV, and movies.

First, Paramount+ offers a 30-day free trial, so you can watch the debut of 1883 plus even more content on the streamer. After that, the best option we’d recommend is the Essential plan, where you can stream content with limited commercials for $4.99/ month. While it won’t include your local CBS station, it does include NFL on CBS and UEFA Champions League. Now that you’re more in-the-know, don’t hesitate to sign up for your free trial of Paramount+ to watch 1883 before the next chapter in the Yellowstone series, 1932, gets underway.
