Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Confirm They Will Not Be Reprising Their Roles on ‘1883’ in ‘Yellowstone’

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill loved playing the roles of Margaret and James in ‘1883’ but the superstar couple will not be reprising their characters in Yellowstone.

In an interview with ET, Tim said, “Oh, I don’t know, I think we like Margaret and James to sort of live in that atmosphere they created for 1883.”

When asked about the new prequel series starring Harrison Ford and Helen Mirran and Faith replied, “They should know it’s going to be one of the most incredible experiences of their lives — of their careers. The people that work on the set, behind the scenes — they’re gonna be well taken care of. It’s the best of the best.”

The couple also praised the work on 1883. Tim said, “When we first started reading the script, 1883, it was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read — both of us, and it’s just truly incredible. I mean Taylor’s writing is what drew us to the entire project.”

They also said they would be open to another project with the show’s creator Taylor Sheridan, “I’d be happy to read one if he brought it our way,” Tim said.

Tim was also on The Tonight Show where he talked about how he proposed to his wife, Faith Hill; going on his first solo tour in six years while recording an album, and how he reacted to Faith’s slap during the filming of 1883.

“It was a real slap…After about the 8th take, I was concussed a bit,” he joked. “It was like Rocky hitting me.”

“1883,” Paramount+’s prequel series to Paramount Network’s “Yellowstone,” aired its finale on February 27, and the episode seemed to complete the main characters’ story arcs. 

The streamer announced Wednesday that its previously ordered Bass Reeves miniseries will now be an 1883 offshoot, officially titled 1883: The Bass Reeves Story.  

According to Deadline, 1883: The Bass Reeves Story will be a limited series that stars Emmy-nominated David Oyelowo as Reeves, a legendary lawman of the Wild West.
