The Yellowstone prequel series' first season followed James Dutton (Tim McGraw) and Margaret Dutton (Faith Hill)

Created by Hell or High Water writer Taylor Sheridan, 1883 was initially intended to conclude following its final episode.

Sheridan has also expanded the Yellowstone franchise with two additional spinoff series - 1932 will yet again be a prequel to Yellowstone

6666 is a direct spinoff of Yellowstone and will feature the legendary Texas ranch the Four Sixes in a modern setting.

Born into slavery in 1838, Reeves escaped his owner during the American Civil War and lived with a few indigenous tribes.

During his time, Reeves arrested over 3,000 outlaws and killed 14, allegedly without ever suffering any serious injury.

At the conclusion of 1883 season 1, Dutton vowed to settle his family and build a home where his daughter Elsa Dutton (Isabel May) died.

Only time will tell if Reeves' story will intertwine with James Dutton's in 1883: The Bass Reeves Story as the series has yet to receive a release date.
