In between Yellowstone season 4 and the upcoming prequel 1883, it’s becoming clear that this franchise attracts big names. It also attracts big numbers — isn’t it fully how those two things can go hand in hand?
For the sake of this article, though, let’s get into things with Billy Bob Thornton in particular — the sort of actor ANY show would like to have.
Watch our Yellowstone season 3 finale review! We like to think this is the perfect way to set the stage for what lies ahead. Check it out and be sure to SUBSCRIBE to Matt & Jess on YouTube — there are more updates on the way that you don’t want to miss on the show moving forward.
According to a new report coming in from Deadline, you are going to see Goliath star and Fargo alum Billy Bob Thornton guest star on the upcoming 1883 prequel, which is currently in production in Texas. There isn’t that much that is known about this role as of yet, save for that the character’s name is Marshal Jim Courtright. He joins a cast that includes country superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill plus acting icon Sam Elliott.
Is there a chance for some synergy to emerge soon between Yellowstone season 4 and the prequel? It’s hard to say anything for certain, but we have to imagine that during the writing/filming process of season 4 last year Taylor Sheridan knew that the prequel would be possible. There could be Easter eggs in there as a gift to people who watch both shows. Remember that Yellowstone season 4 will premiere on Paramount Network come November 7; meanwhile, the 1883 prequel is set to debut on Paramount+ in December. There’s lots to look forward to all across the board!
