Yellowstone Prequel Gets New Title

By Jessica Lerner 

Taylor Sheridan’s next installment of the Yellowstone origin story on Paramount+ is going all the way back to the end of World War I and the start of Prohibition.

The prequel series, now titled 1923 instead of 1932, focuses on the Dutton family’s next two generations following the events of the first prequel series, 1883. The show will premiere on the streamer in December.

Starring Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford, the series sees the Duttons struggle to survive a catastrophic drought, lawlessness, Prohibition and a cow theft epidemic, all while fighting under the shadow of Montana’s Great Depression, which came almost a decade before the rest of the country.


The limited series follows the record-breaking performance of 1883, the most-watched series ever on Paramount+ globally, and is the latest addition to Sheridan’s growing slate on Paramount+, which includes 1883, Mayor of Kingstown and the upcoming series Lioness, Tulsa King, 1883: The Bass Reeves Story and Land Man.

The new prequel is executive produced by Sheridan, John Linson, Art Linson, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari and Ben Richardson.
