This has been an exciting week for Yellowstone fans. We learned when Yellowstone‘s fifth season will debut (November 13), learned more about the spin-off series 6666, and heard about a new addition to the 1883 universe called 1883: The Bass Reeves Story.
On top of all of that, we got some huge news about the new prequel series 1932. The series will follow a new generation of Duttons (presumably John Sr. from 1883 and his family) as they deal with all of the major world issues going on during that era in history.
First, we learned that two big names have been attached to the series. Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren have signed on to appear in the show, though we don’t know which characters they will play. It seems likely Ford could be portraying a grown-up John Sr. (who was a young child in 1883).
In other 1932 news, we learned that the new show is slated for a December debut on Paramount+.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, who played James and Margaret Dutton in 1883, recently spoke with ET about Ford and Mirren’s casting in 1932. When asked what they have to say to the two actors as they prepare to enter the Yellowstone world, Hill responded:
“They should know it’s going to be one of the most incredible experiences of their lives, of their careers. The people that work on the set, behind the scenes, they’re gonna be well taken care of. It’s the best of the best.”
“And the writing’s gonna be incredible,” McGraw chimed in.
Hill also said Ford and Mirren will be in for “one of the most incredible experiences of their [lives].”
We can’t wait to see what Ford and Mirren bring to the table in 1932! Until we learn more about that show, enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at 1883 in the video below.
