Are there loads of spin-offs?
Oh boy, yes. The show has spawned numerous spin-offs which focus on different generations of the Dutton family. Two have aired so far; prequel 1883 which stars Sam Elliott and Tim McGraw in the Old West, and another titled 1923 with Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren during the time of the Great Depression in Montana. The latter is set to return for a second season.
There are other spin-offs in development. Bass Reeves is a spin-off series to 1883, which will star David Oyelowo as the title character, the first Black US Marshal. Filming on the project began in January 2023.
Two other spin-offs are reported to be in the works; 1944 which is based around the Second World War, and 6666 set in present day Texas.
