Like its predecessor 1883, the Yellowstone prequel 1923 is reportedly being accelerated for the streaming service Paramount+. Below is a list of the characters in the cast and the potential release date.
Harrison Ford stars as Jacob Dutton, patriarch of the Yellowstone Ranch and brother of James Dutton (1883's Tim McGraw, who died in 1893 via a Yellowstone Season 4 flashback). Cara Dutton, played by Oscar winner Helen Mirren, is married to Jacob.
His oldest nephew, John Dutton Sr., is played by James Badge Dale and is married to his dutiful wife, Emma, Marley Shelton. Darren Mann will play Jack, their son and Jacob's great-nephew.
Spencer Dutton, Jacob's nephew and John Sr.'s brother, will be played by Brandon Sklenar, who has been characterized as "a dedicated rancher who is deeply loyal to his family."
Teonna Rainwater, a teenage student at a public residential boarding school, is portrayed by Aminah Nieves. Additionally, Julia Schlapefer portrays Alexandra, a British woman who encounters a Dutton while traveling.
Although Sebastian Roché was added to the 1923 ensemble, little is known about his character.
Jerome Flynn, who portrayed Ser Bronn of the Blackwater and Tyrion Lannister's bodyguard in Game of Thrones, will play Banner Creighton, "a hard-headed Scottish brogue and the leader of the local sheep men," in the movie, according to Deadline. Robert Patrick will play Sheriff William McDowell, a friend of the Dutton family.
Michelle Randolph plays Elizabeth Stafford, a "feisty and capable young woman" who is marrying into the Dutton family in the Yellowstone prequel 1923. Zane, a "fiercely loyal ranch foreman," is played by Brian Geraghty.
Yellowstone Prequel 1923 Plot
Originally titled 1932, Sheridan's latest Yellowstone prequel 1923 denotes the year the story takes place – in the Prohibition era following World War I and 40 years after the events of the previous prequel, 1883. However, this is still approximately 35 years before the birth of Kevin Costner's John Dutton from Yellowstone.
"1923 focuses on the Dutton family's next two generations as they struggle 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," the series description reads.
1923 Release Date
The streamer has revealed that 1923 will be a Paramount+ exclusive series that will air in December. The success of Yellowstone on the Paramount Network, on the other hand, will be used to help introduce the prequel.
Yellowstone Season 5 will debut on Sunday, Nov. 13, and will be divided into two halves of seven episodes each. The first half of Season 5 should conclude on Christmas Eve, Dec. 25.
If Paramount agrees to air the first two episodes of 1923, they will most likely air on Dec. 18, followed by episode two on Christmas.
Yellowstone's first four seasons are currently available on Peacock, and the prequel 1883 is available on Paramount+.
