Yellowstone Spin-Off 1883 Gets a New Season After All

Buckle up, because there’s more 1883 on the horizon.

The hit Yellowstone spin-off will expand on its story for a Paramount+ limited series called 1883: The Bass Reeves Story—but there’s a catch. While the show carries the 1883 moniker, it will tell an entirely different story from season one, so don’t get your hopes up about seeing 1883 season one stars Tim McGraw, Faith Hill or Sam Elliott.

The new series will star Academy Award nominee David Oyelowo as Reeves, “a legendary lawman of the Wild West,” according to the streamer. “Known as the greatest frontier hero in American history, and also believed to be the inspiration for The Lone Ranger. Reeves worked in the post-Reconstruction era as a federal peace officer in the Indian Territory, capturing over 3,000 of the most dangerous criminals without ever being wounded.”

1883: The Bass Reeves Story will be co-executive produced by Yellowstone and 1883 creator Taylor Sheridan, who always alluded to the fact that 1883 might only be a one season thing. 

Find Out the Kanye West Protégé Who Won The Masked Singer

Team: Good

In the May 18 season finale, Firefly impressed with her version of Usher‘s “Bad Girl.” Her clue package included a basketball hoop, a keyboard and a pin with the numbers 5, 6, 7, 8. After advancing to the final two, she performed Robin Thicke‘s “Lost Without U,” which was enough to earn her the season seven title. After winning the competition, Firefly was unmasked as singer, model and dancer Teyana Taylor.

Firefly flew into the finale on the March 23 episode, first impressing the panel with her performance of “Attention” by Charlie Puth. Then, she writhed around the floor during the Final Showdown against Thingamabob and Cyclops, securing her spot in the next round. The panelists complimented her dancing just as much as her singing. Her latest clue package included a photo of Kanye West, sticks of TNT, a fire alarm and the knowledge that she used to perform shows for her neighbors. 

It was a rocky night for Firefly on the March 16 episode. After an impressive performance of Michael Jackson‘s “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing),” she still found herself in the bottom two. She sang a killer version of Ariana Grande‘s “God Is a Woman” to knock out Ram and save herself, at least for another week.

Firefly’s Mega Clue was a photo of Pharrell Williams, who she said has been instrumental in her career.

On March 9, she performed Chaka Khan‘s “Ain’t Nobody” and her video included a program from the famed Apollo Theater, a framed photo of Tyler Perry, references to stand-up comedy and a Statue of Liberty figurine. 

How Mariah Carey Reacted to Nick Cannon’s Tribute Song “Alone”

E! News: What are the life experiences you drew from for this project?

Nick Cannon: Everything. I mean, this my entire adult life. I’ve had so much heartbreak. I’ve been a part of so many situations where I’ve been the one that’s hurt. I feel like this gives people a real authentic look into who I am—from the vulnerable side to the egotistical sides. It is like confessions of a broken soul with someone who yearns for love, who wants to figure it out but hasn’t gotten it right.

E!: What are you hoping your fans take away from this mixtape? 

NC: It’s the art. We haven’t had this type of honesty and vulnerability. We get the opportunity to really emote. I feel like a lot of times people see so many different sides of me, but they never really get to know the true me and how I approach something. If they get to see the actual side that gets to emote through this project, that’s my goal.

E!: You worked with so many amazing people on this mixtape. What was it like collabing with Brandy and what was her best advice?

NC: You hear the lyrics in the song. She was like “Yo, you have got to grow up, we are grown now.” I am doing the same thing I was doing when we were teenagers. But being under the tutelage of one of the greatest voices ever, I was honored. Like, “Wow, this is this is the GOAT and she’s showing me how to do it.” So, that was a lot of fun.

E!: You reference a lot of the women in your life on this mixtape. What do they think about it?

NC: They know me and they are like, “Oh, here he goes again.” Everybody’s so supportive and so loving, especially when it comes to art. I’m not intentionally trying to be a messy individual or anything, but one has to speak their truth and one has to be authentic.

Mindy Kaling Shuts Down Any “Freak Out” Over South Asian Velma

Mindy Kaling has no time for the haters.

When the Never Have I Ever creator shared a look at the Scooby-Doo animated spinoff Velma during a Warner Bros Discovery Upfront presentation on May 18, she was blunt about her support for making the title character South Asian, Deadline reported. 

Mindy, who voices Velma, said, “Hopefully you noticed my Velma is South Asian. If people freak out about that, I don’t care.”

She went on to say that if a dog can solve crime, Velma “can be brown,” per Deadline.

Mindy is also the executive producer of the HBO Max series that uncovers the origin story of Velma Dinkley. The streamer announced the series in February 2021 and was met with backlash online as some fans saw her character as feeding into the South Asian brainiac stereotype, according to Deadline.

In July 2021, Mindy addressed the comments on Late Night with Seth Meyerssaying, “When it was announced that I was going to do the voice of Velma, people were very supportive and happy on Twitter. And so, I felt great because these are really intense fans, you know—cartoon, comic book fans, those are huge fans. And especially [for] a legacy show like this.”

Michael Consuelos finally got an in-person graduation ceremony.

The eldest son of Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos took to his Instagram Story on May 18 to share a selfie before his long-awaited New York University commencement ceremony. The pic gave viewers a good look at the graduate in his purple gown and cap.

Back in May 2020, proud mama Kelly shared a throwback photo of Michael to honor the completion of his college journey.

“Fours years passed in the blink of an eye and today you take your final final exam in college,” she wrote. “Congratulations Michael! You’re a virtual graduate. Literally!”
