The enormous fan base is eager to learn when they can see more of the Duttons and their friends. If you’re interested in learning more about ‘1883’ season 2, here’s what we know.

1883 Season 2 Release Date

Contrary to popular belief, although further episodes of 1883 have been ordered, Paramount has opted to refer to the new seasons as part of an anthology series rather than a season 2.


To further confuse all things, the upcoming destination on the Yellowstone series cruise will be dubbed 1932.

At the moment, there is no indication about the publication date of that series. Additional content is on the way, but with no launch date or indication of when production will start, we’ll likely have to wait until 2023 to see more of this show.

The first season began in November, and a similar schedule for the second season seems a reasonable bet for next year.

Following that, Elsa develops a rapport with and falls in love with a Comanche fighter called Sam but decides to split ways since her family requires her.

Additionally, Thomas finds love with Noemi, a Romani widow, but is hesitant to embrace her owing to their relationship’s illicit nature.

Elsewhere, Shea struggles with his terrible history and attempts to transcend his pain to make rational group judgments.

Unfortunately, Elsa is randomly defeated by an arrow by the Native Americans, and her blood becomes septic as the company comes to Fort Caspar.

As the season draws close, James journeys with Elsa to Paradise Valley, where she is laid to rest quietly.

On the other hand, everyone save Risa and Josef refuses to stay in Montana and abandons the caravan, only to be murdered by horse thieves. Thomas and Noemi go to Oregon a year after Elsa’s demise, while Shea wanders the seaside and eventually shoots himself.

Season 2 will focus on the year following Elsa’s death and how Shea and Thomas arrive at the epilogue’s events. Finally, it will discuss the difficulties encountered by the Duttons while constructing the Yellowstone Ranch and provide the setting for ‘Yellowstone.’
