First “Yellowstone: 1923” Teaser Reveals Harrison Ford & Hellen Mirren as Jacob & Cara Dutton

Yellowstone: 1923 is a prequel, of course, to the massively successful Yellowstone and yet another outpost of creator Taylor Sheridan’s growing western universe. A new teaser from Paramount+ reveals the third series from the ever-busy Sheridan, who has tapped some major film talent to lead his new show. If you’re going to extend your already burgeoning western project, who better to enlist than Harrison Ford and Hellen Mirren, who lead a new generation of Duttons in 1923? The answer is no one.

This brings us to the first teaser for Yellowstone: 1923, which reveals Ford’s and Mirren’s Jacob and Cara Dutton as Jacob saddles a horse on the Yellowstone Ranch. “Violence has always followed this family from the Scottish Highlands to the slums of Dublin, and it followed us here,” a voiceover tells us over scenes of all sorts of mayhem. “Where it doesn’t follow, we hunt it down. We seek it.” 1923 won’t skimp on the action—the Yellowstone universe thrives on skirmishes of one type or another—and the teaser ends with Ford’s Jacob aiming his rifle at an unseen threat.

Yellowstone: 1923 is set between Sheridan’s two other series—the Kevin Costner-led Yellowstone and the prequel series 1883. The new series tracks Jacob and Cara Dutton’s lives as they lead the Yellowstone Ranch through a particularly volatile point in American history. Prohibition, drought, a pandemic, and the coming Great Depression are all bearing down on the Dutton family, the same as they are for every American. 1923 will follow a two-season arc, with Ford and Mirren joined by Sebastian Roché, Jerome Flynn, Darren Mann, Michelle Randolph, James Badge Dale, Marley Shelton, Brian Geraghty, Aminah Nieves, Jennifer Ehle, Julia Schlaepfer, Brandon Sklenar, and Robert Patrick.

Check out the teaser below. Yellowstone; 1923 begins streaming on Paramount+ on December 18.
