·1 min read

Paramount’s “Yellowstone” prequel has been renamed “1923” to encompass the end of World War I and the beginning of Prohibition.

The series, which was previously titled “1932,” focuses on the Dutton family’s next two generations (following the events of the first prequel series “1883”).

Throughout the series, the family will have to survive historic drought, lawlessness and prohibition, and an epidemic of cattle theft; all battled beneath the cloud of Montana’s great depression, which preceded the nation by almost a decade.

It will premiere in December on Paramount+.
