Paramount Network and Paramount+ have set premiere dates for season four of Yellowstone and two new shows – 1883 and Mayor of Kingstown.
Yellowstone, which airs on the Paramount Network cable channel, stars Kevin Costner, Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser and more. Season four will feature the addition of Jacki Weaver, Piper Perabo, and Kathryn Kelly in guest-starring roles.
1883 is a prequel series to Yellowstone, and it stars Faith Hill and Tim McGraw as the heads of the original Dutton family. Mayor of Kingstown follows the powerful McLusky family of Michigan and stars Jeremy Renner, Dianne Wiest, Hugh Dillon, Pha’rez Lass, Tobi Bamtefa, Emma Laird, Derek Webster, and Taylor Handley.
Both of these new shows are exclusives for the Paramount+ streaming service but will have their first episodes simulcast on the Paramount cable channel. More was revealed about the seasons ahead in a press release.
MTV Entertainment Studios today announced Paramount Network’s #1 hit series, Yellowstone, is set to return Sunday, November 7th. In addition, Paramount+, the streaming service from ViacomCBS, announced the service’s upcoming series, Mayor of Kingstown and 1883 – the Yellowstone origin story – will premiere on Sunday, November 14th, and Sunday, December 19th, respectively.
The new season of Yellowstone will also serve as a launch pad for the new series Mayor of Kingstown and 1883. Paramount Network will air a special simulcast event for both Mayor of Kingstown and 1883 following Yellowstone to promote the new series.
“Our strategy is to make Yellowstone, the massive # 1 hit with more than 10 million fans, into a global hit franchise under the incredible creative vision of Taylor Sheridan’s world building storytelling,” said Chris McCarthy, President and CEO, MTV Entertainment. “These new series will debut on Paramount+ and have special premiere day sneak episodes behind Yellowstone introducing this huge audience to these new stories, allowing us to leverage our linear platforms to fuel the growth of Paramount+ which will stream each series exclusively after episode two.”
“Mayor of Kingstown and 1883 are perfect examples of the types of prestige dramas we are focused on bringing to Paramount+,” said Tanya Giles, Chief Programming Officer, ViacomCBS Streaming. “Taylor Sheridan is an exceptional talent and we are thrilled to be expanding his portfolio of series within the ViacomCBS family. With the special simulcast event of both series on Paramount Network, we will be further tapping into the scale and reach of ViacomCBS to bring audiences to Paramount+.”
“We are thrilled to present these shows as part of this newly established Taylor Sheridan universe that has grown and expanded beyond our greatest expectations,” said David Glasser, CEO of 101 Studios. “Taylor has proven time and time again his powerful ability to tell riveting stories that are rich with passion, drama and adventure and entertain audiences everywhere. Additionally, the fall is an incredible landscape for television, bringing in the strongest viewer availability. ViacomCBS has remained a phenomenal partner to us over the years and this showcases the network’s confidence in all of our shows.”
As part of Sheridan’s deal with MTV Entertainment and ViacomCBS, Mayor of Kingstown and 1883 are first from his exclusive multi-year pact, which includes scripted and procedural series for streaming and linear. 101 Studios serves as a production partner on all series.

Mayor of Kingstown – premiering Sunday, November 14th on Paramount+ – follows the McLusky family – power brokers in Kingstown, Michigan where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry.

What do you think? Are you excited for the arrival of these shows this fall to Paramount+ and Paramount Network?
I would love to watch 1883 but can not get paramount plus or other streaming shows.due to no internet where I live.
I love this series. Please don’t ever cancel it. I’ve watched the entire thing three times and now have the DVDs. I’m 80 it takes a lot to get my attention but I truly love this series
I want to see more Yellowstone and the other two new ones.
Some people living in rural areas cannot stream because of slow network connection. These stream only shows are bad news for this category.
Paramount + sounds like a boys club.
I can’t wait too long this year should came out on Father’s Day weekend ridiculous why delayed and dragging it all out.
I love Yellowstone. I started watching because of Kevin Costner, but love the whole cast. I turned this wonderful story on to many people, who are also faithful watchers now. I definitely will watch 1883 and the other new show. Can’t wait.
thank you. I love Yellowstone. Have never been anywhere near Montana or Utah and love looking at those beautiful spacious places. paramount+: i already watch a few times a year for The Good Fight, Star Trek Discovery & Star Trek… sorry, blanking, the other brilliant spin-off… I don’t like how they are forcing people who want to watch the TONYs to watch via their app, and that’s not till the end of September. It supposedly will never air on broadcast tv. A concert will instead. Broadway is not just about music. The Tonys are not just about Broadway. But, whatever.… Read more »
I’m excited to see the 4th season I’m not that happy that you have to now pay more money to stream Paramount plus to see the other 2 shows very unfair especially in The Times we live in that money is tight.. I’ll be watching Yellowstone but I’m not paying for anything else to watch anything else very unfair
TOTALLY AGREE!!! As much as I love Yellowstone and have a massive crush on Sam Elliott I’m afraid I won’t be watching Y-1883 or Kingston show either. I pay enough for cable TV, can’t afford to pay more to stream a show on a station I’m already paying cable to watch… sorry Sam… but Costner, be seeing ya soon!!
I can’t wait to watch it this November look forward every episode. Never missed any episodes.
I’m ready and excited for the drama. I really didn’t expect that ambush!
