Celebrating the launch of the streaming service in the UK and Ireland, Paramount Plus announced that the Yellowstone sequel series will now be titled “1923”, which will “explain the end of World War I (1918) and the beginning of Prohibition (1920), both of which will be woven into the story.” The show follows the Duttons “as they struggle to survive historic drought, lawlessness and prohibition, and an epidemic of cattle rustling.” In addition, they also have to deal with the “Great Depression of Montana,” which occurred a few years before the Great Depression of 1929. The show takes place 40 years after the popular Paramount Plus series 1883, which was the most watched series on Paramount Plus worldwide. The series will debut in December, although no further details have been announced at this time.
According to Variety, Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are set to star in Taylor Sheridan’s new “Yellowstone” prequel “1932” at Paramount+, Variety has learned. The show follows the Dutton family in the titular year, a time of Prohibition, the Great Depression, and westward expansion. “1932” is a followup to “1883,” the latter of which told the story of the Dutton family as they made their way to Montana to found what would become the Yellowstone Ranch in the mothership series. “1932” was ordered to series at Paramount+ back in February. The show falls under Sheridan’s expansive overall deal with Paramount. Mirren and Ford starred way back in Peter Weir’s 1986 film “The Mosquito Coast.” “1932” will debut on Paramount+ in December. It is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios, and Bosque Ranch Productions.
