In February 2022, ViacomCBS held a presentation to their investors and revealed some exciting news about their lineup of shows, including a super-sized Season Five of Yellowstone, as well as another prequel series to follow up the wildly successful 1883.

At the time, the series, which will follow the children we met in 1883 raising the next generation of Duttons and follow them through the Great Depression, was going to be called 1932.

Now, its title is 1923.

Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford have been announced as the stars of 1923, which is “the next story will introduce a new generation of the Dutton family and explore the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition, and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.”

We – a lot of other outlets – assumed Harrison Ford would be playing John Dutton, the son of Tim McGraw’s James Dutton from the 1883 series. But, we were all very wrong.

According to The Wrap, Harrison Ford will be playing James Dutton’s brother, Jacob Dutton. Helen Mirren plays his wife, Cara Dutton.

1923 also announced it’s extended cast including Darren Mann, Michelle Randolph, James Badge Dale, Marley Shelton, Brian Geraghty, Aminah Nieves, and Julia Schlaepfer.

Dale will be playing John Dutton Sr. (who was five years old in the series 1883), while Mann will be playing Jack Dutton, John’s the younger brother who wasn’t yet born in 1883 but has been seen in Yellowstone flashbacks. Shelton plays Emma Dutton, the wife John Sr.

While we patiently wait for the premiere of 1923, we can now enjoy some footage of the cast filming! KXLF Butte posted a video of Harrison Ford, clad in a white cowboy hat and 1920s western garb, on horseback in between takes. 

He is talking with fellow actors and at one point, threw his head back in laughter. We can’t wait for the show!
