IMDb shows 10 episodes for 1883, the same number as Mayor of Kingstown (another Taylor Sheridan show on P+) and on par with other P+ original dramas that aren't Star Trek.

I generally don't go out of my way for Westerns, and I actually didn't care for Yellowstone, but 1883 continues to impress. It's really well done. The hype is justified.

Will watch after we finish Yellowstone ( just started the 2nd season).

We were going to pace Yellowstone, not to burn thru them ( watched season 1 two months ago), but my wife said enough, time to watch them all, probably be done by next week.

Also, watching Yellowstone in 4K, looks great.

Had hoped I was wrong about how the last episode would end but nope. Of course they telegraphed it from the first scene of the first episode. Curious to see what they do with additional episodes.

I can't recall any mention of Elsa in the Yellowstone series, wonder if they will address that in the future.

One thing I think is for sure, we will be seeing a lot more of Isabel May in the future, just not in the Dutton world.

She properly will be back on Young Sheldon, she was a recurring guest on that show.

I too am puzzled by what a second season would look like. Pretty much only the core Dutton family is left, so a second season would have to have all new characters.

All in all, it was a fine show, but at the end of the day, it was a wagon train movie, a genre that dates back to the very dawn of the movies. Its not a bad one, actually very good, but nothing fresh and original like Yellowstone.

Great series diminished by a bad finale. Sure we knew she was a goner, but they really dragged it out with not one but two head-fakes in the last episode. First, we were given hope when she comes out of her fever and acts like she's feeling better and past the worst of it, and then they encounter Indians who are knowledgeable and generous in trying to help her.

The death of Shea seemed unnecessary too. I know it was foreshadowed with the earlier talk about seeing the ocean for his wife, but it seemed like one of the main points of the season was to give him a purpose and something to live for. I figured the Duttons would build him a nice little cabin on their property, and he would help out as an extra gun and offer his wisdom as needed. To kill yourself like that is a coward's act, unless you are in a lot of pain from a terminal disease or something.

The only characters who got a happy ending were Neomi and Thomas, but they'll be in for a big surprise when they realize that Oregon was one of the most racist states outside of the deep south during that era, keeping Black exclusion laws in its state constitution until 1926. Source

Paramount recently said there was more coming but did not really say another season so who knows. The closing credits did say they would be back in the fall.

There were some flashback scenes for the 1883 characters shown in Yellowstone season 4. They appeared to be about 10 years after what we have had so far in 1883. The Duttons had two sons. (That was what convinced me Elsa wouldn't make it) I think they have more material filmed and waiting.

Nothing really different in there, speculation without the Sheridan quotes.

I still think they have a couple hours of 10 years later to serve up in between the two parts of Yellowstone season 5.

Maybe this article will help clear up the apparent planned transition from "1883" to "1932". Including this quote:

"The incredible storytelling and stellar performances behind 1883 have fueled phenomenal new records for Paramount+," Tanya Giles, chief programming officer of ViacomCBS Streaming said in a statement. "We look forward to bringing fans even more of the Duttons’ origin story."

For someone who opened the series contemplating suicide, this wasn't a huge reach. The only thing left on his bucket list was to see the Pacific Ocean for his wife and he accomplished that.

It didn't end there. Until the 1950s, the state capitol, Salem, prohibited blacks from staying overnight (Sundown Law). In the early 1940s, world class opera singers Marian Anderson and Paul Robeson were transported by a Willamette University student (and future state governor and congressman), Senator Mark O. Hatfield, to Portland to find lodging after a performance at Salem's historic Elsinore Theatre. Oregon's law against interracial marriages was repealed in 1952 and they signed off on the 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1959 giving non-whites the right to vote.

The Oregon Legislature also formally supported the internment of the Japanese.

It is not a proud history.
