awsmone google news

Paramount+ is producing another “Yellowstone” prequel. Actually, “1923” with its top-class cast was designed as a miniseries, but now series creator Taylor Sheridan announces other plans.

  • “1923,” another “Yellowstone” prequel, is still scheduled for release in 2022 on streaming service Paramount+.
  • Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford will star in the series. However, nothing is yet known about their roles.
  • Series creator Taylor Sheridan now announced new plans for the length of the series. The miniseries will now receive two seasons.

With “1923”, another “Yellowstone” prequel will appear on streaming service Paramount+ in 2022, after “1883”. It is about another generation of the Duttons. Even before the start of the series, there is now good news, because the series previously planned as a miniseries will now probably get two seasons. We have summarized all of this for you below.

1923: That’s why the name was changed

Originally, the series was to be released under the name “1932”, i.e. set 9 years later. According to Paramount+, the change was made because the series will cover “the end of World War I and the beginning of Prohibition.” This is reported by the US magazine TV Line.

1923: When will the series be released?

There is no exact start date yet. According to U.S. magazine Entertainment Weekly, “1923” is set to premiere in the U.S. on Paramount+ in December 2022.

1923: What it’s about

The new “Yellowstone” origin story follows another generation of Duttons. After the settlement of the land, this time the focus is on the bleak expansion of the West, the end of World War I and the beginning of Prohibition.

1923: Is there a trailer?

So far there is no trailer for the new series. As soon as one is released, you’ll find it here.

1923: Cast

Harrison Ford (“Star Wars,” “Indiana Jones”) and Helen Mirren (“The Queen”) will star. Ford will portray Jacob Dutton, the brother of James Dutton. Mirren, in turn, will portray Jacob’s wife, Cara Dutton. More details about the roles, however, are kept well under wraps until now.

The cast also includes Robert Patrick (“The X-Files”), Darren Mann (“Animal Kingdom”), Marley Shelton (“The Lottery”), James Badge Dale (“The Empty Man”), Brian Geraghty (“Big Sky”), Julia Schlaepfer (“The Politician”), Michelle Randolph, Brandon Sklenar and newcomer Aminah Nieves.

Brand new, it has also now been announced that actor Jerome Flynn will also play a role in the new series. Flynn is best known for his role as the mercenary Bronn in HBO’s hit series “Game of Thrones.” In “1923,” Flynn will portray the character Banner Creighton. The latter is described as a headstrong Scotsman who leads the local shepherds.

Also joining the series now is actor Timothy Dalton. The former “James Bond” actor (“James Bond 007 – The Touch of Death,” “James Bond 007 – License to Kill”) most recently appeared in series such as “Penny Dreadful” and “Doom Patrol” and now joins the new Paramount+ series.

In “1923,” Dalton will portray the character Donald Whitfield. He is a self-confident and powerful man who does everything to increase his accumulated wealth. In doing so, he always shows little empathy and also uses devious methods to achieve his desired goal.

1923: What is known about the production?

The series is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios and Bosque Ranch Productions. Taylor Sheridan (“Yellowstone,” “Mayor of Kingstown”) is executive producing along with John Linson, Art Linson, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari and Ben Richardson.

Now it has been revealed that apparently Taylor Sheridan’s plans for the length of the series have changed. Originally, “1923” was to air as a limited eight-part miniseries. However, the series creator has probably gone so deep into the matter around the Dutton Ranch and the past of the family dynasty, that a second season has to be made.

According to the US online magazine Deadline, Sheridan’s ideas for an additional extension for the Paramount+ series have already been given the green light by the studio, but now the star-studded cast must also be brought in for another season. Whether Harrison Ford and co. will be on board for the previously unplanned extension is not yet known.
