1 Yellowstone Spinoff Wasn't Meant To Happen - How Paramount's Mistake Actually Saved The Franchise!

Yellowstone spinoff 1923 came to be due to a misunderstanding by Paramount about the ending of 1883. Although 1883 was meant to be a limited series, Paramount executives didn't understand and picked it up for a second season. When creator Taylor Sheridan realized this, he decided to explore another chapter in the Dutton family's history, leading to 1923. Despite the end of the main Yellowstone series, the success of spinoffs like 1923 proves that the franchise can survive without Kevin Costner's John Dutton and will continue to expand its universe.
