Taylor Sheridan is peeling again the curtain on the explosive 1883 finale.
The creator of the Yellowstone prequel not too long ago obtained candid concerning the surprising finish to the Paramount+ collection, which noticed the deaths of two main characters: Isabel Might‘s Elsa Dutton, who succumbed to her accidents after being shot by an arrow, and Shea Brennan (Sam Elliott) by suicide. And extra particularly, how the Paramount executives like president Bob Bakish—who had beforehand ordered extra episodes of 1883—reacted to the very definitive conclusion.
“I do know they learn the scripts, however they do not learn scripts,” Taylor informed Deadline Dec. 20, “so once they learn the final episode of 1883, I do not suppose they digested what had simply occurred, although I made it fairly clear from the very starting.
The Hell or Excessive Water author famous that it was solely after watching the finale that they actually understood what he was going for.
“The story I heard is Bob Bakish watched it and mentioned, ‘wait a minute, she dies! All of them die? What will we do in season two?'” Taylor continued. “I mentioned, ‘there isn’t any season two.’ They’re like, ‘there higher be a f–king season two as a result of we already picked it up.’ I am sitting right here going, ‘guys everyone seems to be lifeless.'”
He added that Paramount wished to fulfill to debate a approach Sam’s character may have survived, which he discovered wasn’t a viable answer. Nevertheless, whereas Taylor wasn’t going to ship a continuation of Shea Brennan and the 1883 Duttons’ story, it did lay the groundwork for his second Yellowstone prequel, 1923.
