The official trailer for the highly anticipated Yellowstone prequel 1883 is finally here!
During the Season 4 premiere of Yellowstone, the trailer for 1883 was unveiled and features country superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, who play James and Margaret Dutton, Sam Elliott, who plays cowboy Shea Brennan, and more.
“I heard a thousand stories, but none could describe this place, the road west is filled with failures,” the clip opens with views of deserted land as a female narrates. “It was a dream, and the dream was coming true, We are the land of no mercy now.”
Watch the official trailer for the upcoming series below.
The famous country couple recently opened up about their experience filming the highly-anticipated show in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
During the interview, McGraw shared some harsh conditions that he encountered while filming, “It’s super dusty and super hot. There’s no way around it. At the same time, it’s like every kid’s fantasy to do something like this, to put your chaps on, your cowboy hat, and your gun holsters every day. Then you get on a horse and try to survive this journey.”
The country hitmaker and “7500 OBO” singer then gushed over seeing his fearless wife, Hill, on set firing guns and riding horses.
“To see my beautiful wife on horseback, firing guns, and having dirt all over her face, I just sit in awe,” McGraw gushed. “She’s a strong woman, anyway. Taylor said early on to me, ‘Man, you’ll just get on that horse. You’re not scared of anything.’ I said, ‘I’m scared of one thing. She’s right over there.’”
While McGraw did endure some tough, dusty conditions while filming, he wasn’t faced with the same challenges that his wife, Hill, was faced with, including the challenge of wearing a corset while horseback riding.
“Although it looks amazing, it’s terrible. I think I have a few ribs floating around in my body,” Hill shared of wearing a corset while horseback riding. “This is real work. I was raised by Edna Earl and Ted Perry, and they believed the best way to teach a child was to get your hands in the dirt. That’s basically this in a nutshell. I think so many actors are drawn to Taylor’s writing because he is portraying the story in a way that was lived. I gained so much respect for cowboys.”
The GRAMMY award-winning pair of superstars and their cast mates filmed the show in what was described as the “middle of nowhere,” which Hill admitted is “why so many actors are drawn to Taylor Sheridan’s writing because he is portraying the story in a way that was lived”
Hill later added that she was ultimately forced to become “quite comfortable” with the rest of the crew on set while filming as they had to adapt to living life in the middle of nowhere and as Hill said, “you learn how to pick a tree, squat down, and do your business.”
Earlier this year in August, the couple shared their excitement of joining the cast.
“Finally the day has come when I get to share some exciting news with you!” Hill previously wrote.
“I will be playing Margaret Dutton, the original matriarch of the Dutton family in the Yellowstone prequel 1883. Just wait, you have never seen anything like this!” she later added.
1883 will premiere on December 19 via Paramount+, while Yellowstone Season 4 premiered on November 7 via Paramount Network and Paramount+.
Created by Taylor Sheridan, 1883 is the highly anticipated prequel to the Emmy® nominated, Yellowstone. 101 Studios and Bosque Ranch Productions serve as production partners on the series.
The prequel follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. 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.
