When Yellowstone first premiered in 2018, viewers couldn't get enough of the Dutton family and their trials and tribulations on the open ranges of Montana. So, it was no surprise when Paramount announced that they were working on 1883, a prequel that follows the ancestors of the characters from the original show 100+ years beforehand. 

While the show is largely not based on real people or real events, producers on the show did everything they could to create a world that looked and felt authentic to the spirit of the late 19th century on the American frontier. And boy did they do a good job with that! 

1883 wrapped up its run in February of 2022, and at this point, viewers and fans still don't know if the show will be returning for another season or not. So, if you still need some western action and adventure in your life, we've got you covered! 

Today, we're taking a look at some of the behind-the-scenes secrets from the set of the show. From glaring inaccuracies to actors who hate their cowboy hats, we're breaking down all the things about 1883 that you didn't see on the TV screen.
