Our time travel to the Wild West pauses after we watch the 1883 finale online, as the Yellowstone prequel ends its first run. The Paramount Plus series stars Sam Elliott as a cowboy trail guide and country singers Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as James and Margaret Dutton.
They will eventually settle a ranch in Montana that their descendant John Dutton (Kevin Costner) runs in the present day of Yellowstone season 4.
Currently, Elsa Dutton (Isabel May) is suffering from being shot with an arrow, so her survival is on the line. The mood is dour as James (Tim McGraw) and Margaret (Faith Hill) doubt that she'll survive, because of an infection.
The Duttons have encountered characters with good and bad intentions, played by guest stars like Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and Billy Bob Thornton.
Here is everything you need to watch 1883 online. Plus, check out our guide on how to watch Yellowstone, the original series.
