Paramount+’s Western series has almost finished its run, but will there be a Lawmen: Bass Reeves Season 2? Here’s what we know.

Though it is a standalone series, Lawmen: Bass Reeves comes under the umbrella of tales of the Wild West staking their claim on Paramount+ – much like Yellowstone.

Based on the true story of the lawman who allegedly inspired The Lone Ranger, the series follows a former enslaved man turned American law enforcer who was among the first Black deputy U.S. Marshals, and the first west of the Mississippi River.

But will there be a Lawmen: Bass Reeves Season 2? Here’s everything we know.

Will there be a Lawmen: Bass Reeves Season 2?

There are currently no confirmed plans for Lawmen: Bass Reeves Season 2 – but that doesn’t mean the Lawmen series won’t carry on.

In a recent interview with Digital Spy, director Damian Marcano alluded to Bass Reeves’ story possibly being over, with Lawmen more likely to continue on as an anthology series.

“I would love for it to be… I thoroughly fell in love with the subject matter, and with our filming location,” Marcano said of Bass Reeves. “You know, I think in this business, if it becomes a problem, if enough people want to watch this, then guess what? There will be more.”

“Obviously, as of this point, it is an anthology series that will sort of cover a different lawman each series but David Oyelowo has definitely set the bar high for wherever we go from this point,” he continued.

Oyelowo told The Hollywood Reporter “The idea, going forward, is to have other lawmen in history whose story should be told, who haven’t been told, to have the opportunity to tell those stories.

“I think there is a feeling, which I very much resonate with, that there is real potency and interest in telling stories of this nature about those who, for whatever reason, fell out of history unjustly. I’m a producer on those going forward; so, the idea is to keep the good work going.”

Marcano also told Digital Spy that he sees the series as a “cousin” to the hit Taylor Sheridan show Yellowstone, placing it adjacent to its ever-expanding world. Sheridan served as an executive producer on the first season of Bass Reeves.

Is there a Lawmen: Bass Reeves Season 2 release?

There is no confirmed release date – or official plans for – Lawmen: Bass Reeves Season 2.

Given that Bass Reeves is somewhat linked to the growing Sheridan-verse, other shows would need to take precedence if a Season 2 was commissioned.

This is most applicable to the much-awaited Yellowstone Season 5 Part 2, which has now been delayed until November 2024. 1923 Season 2 is also hotly anticipated.

We’ll keep this page updated with the latest information.
