What’s Coming to Paramount+ in December 2021, Including ‘1883’ and ‘Scream’

Fern Siegel

Among the most anticipated shows in December is the premiere of “1883,” the Paramount + prequel to Taylor Sheridan’s hit Paramount Network series “Yellowstone.” The show follows the Dutton family in the 19th century, before they founded the Montana cattle ranch that will provide the fertile ground for battle and opportunity for their descendants. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill co-star.

The “Scream” franchise is happy to inject fright into the winter season, as do three Stephen King sagas, while the British rom-com “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” which made Hugh Grant a star, is also onboard.
