Yellowstone fans, it's time to dive into a whole new era.
The first official trailer for the newest Yellowstone origin story, 1923, is finally here and it does not disappoint! Plus, we've got all the details on the highly anticipated prequel series starring Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren, including the premiere date, characters, plot, and more!
The latest addition to the Yellowstone universe comes after another wildly successful origin story, 1883. In case you missed it, 1923 was originally titled 1932, but the name was changed in June to reflect the series' focus on events that unfold shortly after the end of WWI and the start of Prohibition, according to Deadline.
No matter the year, we can't wait to find out more about the Duttons' ancestors. If the new trailer is anything to go by, there's sure to be plenty of action and adventure!
The first official trailer for '1923' is finally here.
Talk about a trailer! We only got a 1 minute and 30 second preview of what's to come, but it was still more than enough to keep us on our toes.
John and his daughter, Beth, are tough, and now we know where they get it from. Helen Mirren is playing Cara Dutton, and she can be seen in the trailer sporting an Irish accent and a "don't mess with me" attitude (which is surely necessary for the new leader of a much-wanted piece of land in the early 19th century).
As with any other Yellowstone show, there is a villain who wants the power the Duttons have. But Jacob and Cara are forces to be reck0ned with. In one scene, Cara can be seen wielding a weapon and standing her ground against a not-so-friendly neighbor while in another, her husband, Jacob Dutton (Harrison Ford) warns, "You attack my family, it's going to be the last thing you ever do."
Who will star in the cast of '1923'?
Paramount+ announced that legendary actors Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren will join the Yellowstone universe in the cast of 1923. Ford will play Jacob Dutton, the patriarch of the Yellowstone ranch and father of John Dutton. Mirren will play Cara Dutton, wife to Jacob Dutton. The rest of the cast has also been announced, and it seems like we're in good hands.
What is '1923' about?
If you're a fan of Taylor Sheridan's movies and TV shows, you're in luck. 1923 will carry on the story of the Dutton family that we met in the initial prequel, 1883. When we first heard of the series, we were told that it "will follow a new generation of Duttons during the time of western expansion, Prohibition, and the Great Depression."
But in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren gave us more insight as to what we can expect.
"He's the silverback," Ford told Vanity Fair about his character, Jacob Dutton.
But when speaking on Jacob's relationship with Cara (Mirren), he made it clear that it was strong. "He's responsible for that branch of the family. These are two people with a very strong bond to each other who are facing really complicated circumstances."
Mirren gave even more insight on Cara—and it seems like she had some creative control herself.
"I see Cara as an immigrant,” Mirren told Vanity fair. “One of the things I very strongly wanted was that she would speak with an Irish accent, not with an American accent. It’s always slightly annoyed me with Westerns that you have all these people speaking with modern American accents when in fact so many of them were fairly recent immigrants.
"The big Irish immigration to America, because of the potato famine, was in the late 19th century. That absolutely chronologically works for Cara. She’s now in her late 60s, we imagine. So she would’ve come, I think, as a young woman from Ireland. I think that’s one of the extraordinary elements of America. The people who arrived, and are still arriving, are people with enormous resilience and enormous courage and independence."
The show will be produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios, which are the same production companies that brought us Yellowstone and 1883.
When can you watch '1923'?
It's official! 1923 will premiere on Sunday, December 18, exclusively on Paramount+.
Until then, you've still got plenty of ways to get your TV Western fix. Viewers were instantly captivated by Yellowstone when it first aired in 2018, introducing the Dutton family, their coveted ranch, and all the wildness that goes along with it. Since then, Paramount+ has launched a Yellowstone podcast, a behind-the-scenes special, and a soon-to-be-aired spinoff titled 6666. So, it's safe to say that the team is busy.
We're grateful that Paramount+ understands the Yellowstone fanbase and continuously feeds us with the content we need. We'll be sure to update you on any more news we receive!
