On Sunday, fans of Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone prequel 1883, which has already enjoyed three successful episodes, went in search of 1884 season 1, episode 4. And they couldn’t find it. With no official announcements from Paramount, any of the show’s official social media accounts, or any of the cast, it was a long wait until LaMonica Garrett, who plays Thomas, confirmed on his Instagram account that the episode had been postponed. But until when? And why? We have the details below.

Why didn’t 1883 air on Paramount+ as usual?

The timing was perfect. With the Yellowstone finale airing on the same day, it seemed a perfect time to drive viewers towards a show that is still developing. And yet Paramount elected not to do that, instead delaying the episode without warning. The Yellowstone finale was used to push the first three episodes of 1883, while a special, The Road West, aired instead. This special was a worthwhile look at the scale and intricacy of the production and is worth checking out, but it was small consolation to fans who were eagerly anticipating the latest installment.

1883 season 1, episode 4 release date:

The latest episode of 1883 is now slated for release on 9 January 2022 at 3 am ET.

Where to watch 1883 online:

1883 is available to watch on Paramount+ and Paramount Network with a 30-day free trial. Paramount Network can be accessed through channel finders like Cox, WoW, Verizon Fios, AT&T U-verse, Comcast Xfinity, Spectrum/Charter, Optimum/Altice, DIRECTV and Dish. 1883 can also be streamed through services such as Philo, fuboTV, and Sling.

Preview and predictions for 1883 season 1, episode 4:

The third episode of 1883 featured a lot of developments, so you can expect the fourth to continue to develop some of those issues, dynamics, and rivalries as everyone continues on. Some predictions:

  • After his falling out with Shea, James will likely travel with his family and the cattle while Shea and Thomas lead the charge. This will cause difficulties should any problems emerge, since James is the only other capable individual traveling with them, and Shea and Thomas need all the help they can get to keep the immigrants alive.
  • Elsa and Ennis’s relationship seems ill-advised to me, and will likely only become more so as we progress. Hopefully, Ennis can prevent James from killing him just a little bit longer, so long as he minds his manners.
  • Since Noemi was introduced with some fanfare, it’s likely she’ll continue to feature prominently, mostly as a way to allow Shea to soften after the loss of his own family.
  • Will the thieves that Shea dismissed from the party do as he predicted, and recruit more men to attack the convoy?
