Lawmen: Bass Reeves is an anthology series, with the first season revealing the untold story of the most legendary lawman in the Old West. This installment follows the journey of Reeves (Oyelowo) and his rise from enslavement to law enforcement as the first Black U.S. Marshal west of the Mississippi. Despite arresting over 3,000 outlaws during the course of his career, the weight of the badge was heavy, and he wrestled with its moral and spiritual cost to his beloved family.
Future iterations of the series will follow other iconic lawmen and outlaws who have impacted history.
In addition to Oyelowo, the first season also stars Lauren E. Banks, Demi Singleton, Forrest Goodluck, Emmy Award winner Barry Pepper, Grantham Coleman, Donald Sutherland and Dennis Quaid. The cast includes also Shea Whigham and Garrett Hedlund as guest stars, and, in recurring roles, Joaquina Kalukango, Lonnie Chavis, Tosin Morohunfola, Dale Dickey, Rob Morgan, Ryan O’Nan, Margot Bingham, Mo Brings Plenty, Justin Hurtt-Dunkley and Bill Dawes.
Lawmen: Bass Reeves was created for television by executive producer and showrunner Chad Feehan. The remaining six episodes are rolling out weekly on Sundays on Paramount+, with the finale airing December 17.
