1923 Season 2: Release Date, Plot, Cast & Everything We Know
1923 Season 2: Here’s everything you need to know about the second season of Yellowstone’s prequel.
- 1923, the second Yellowstone prequel after 1883, debuted on Paramount+ on December 18, 2022.
- The streaming service renewed the series for a second season in February 2023.
1923 is an American Western drama series, the prequel to the Paramount Network series, Yellowstone and serves as a sequel to the series 1883. The Taylor Sheridan show starring Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford, “explores the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, and the end of Prohibition all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home,” will be coming back for another chapter.
Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone Universe continues to expand. What started with one show following the dramas of the modern-day Dutton family on their Montana ranch, now has two prequels already in 1883 and 1923. Another spin-off 6666 is already in the works.
As 1923 gets renewed for a second season which is going to be its final season, here’s everything we know so far about the show’s upcoming season.
1923 Season 2 Potential Release Date
No release date has been announced for the second season. 1923 Season 2 was officially confirmed in February 2023, as reported by Deadline. But the website did not mention any potential release date. But in accordance with the production timetable for 1923 season 1, we can speculate the waiting time for the second season premiere.
The filming of the first season of the series officially started in August 2022. Season 1 premiered in Dec 2022. That’s a rapid turnaround, and it suggests that the 1923 season 2 release date could come as soon as late 2023 or early 2024. So hopefully the wait won’t be too long.
However, we should be well aware that Sheridan currently is handling a lot of Yellowstone shows including Yellowstone, 6666 and original shows like Mayor of Kingstown, Tulsa King, and Lioness. So, a lot depends on his schedule.
Harrison will return for the second season
The former Star Wars, Indiana Jones actor, Harrison Ford has confirmed that he can’t wait to get back in the saddle (literally) over at Dutton ranch. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Ford spoke about his filming schedule and excitement to join the crew for the second season.
Speaking about his shows, 1923 and Shrinking (Apple TV+), Ford said, “[Shrinking] came along, and then, very quickly after that, 1923 came along. I took the job without a script on both of them, on faith that the people who created the projects were going to deliver me a good script. I really didn’t realize how much work 1923 was going to be, and I absolutely feel it’s worth it. I’m excited to do another season of both.”
Ford explained, “The simplest answer is probably the most truthful: After two years of sitting on my ass during Covid-19, and waiting quite a few years for Indiana Jones to start, I had not done as much work as I wanted to and I wanted to do different things.”
1923 Season 2 Plot
It is hard to predict the plot of the next season as the first season hasn’t concluded. We’ll get a better picture of it only when the first season of 1923 concludes and we will discover the plot threads that have been resolved or left open.
For now, it’s best to say that the show will continue to explore the social challenges of the early 20th century, and how that impacts the lives of the people of the time. More can be said only when we receive a trailer for the Season 2 of the show.
1923 Season 2 Cast
Other than new cast members that are not yet announced and some unlucky cast members who did not get past the end of season 1 of 1923 (Like Sister Mary), the Season 2 cast isn’t too difficult to predict as we’ll see major faces return. Here are the speculated cast members of Season 2:
- Harrison Ford as Jacob Dutton
- Helen Mirren as Cara Dutton
- Brandon Sklenar as Spencer Dutton
- Julia Schlaepfer as Alexandra
- Jerome Flynn as Banner Creighton
- Darren Mann as Jack Dutton
- Brian Geraghty as Zane Davis
- Aminah Nieves as Teonna Rainwater
- Michelle Randolph as Liz Strafford
- Timothy Dalton as Donald Whitfield

1923 Season 1 review and ratings
On Rotten Tomatoes, 1923 holds a 90% approval rating with an average rating of 7.2/10, based on 39 reviews by critics. The website’s consensus states, “Distinguished by the ineffable star power of Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren, 1923 is another solid if unrelentingly grim addition to Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone universe.”
On Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, the series has received a score of 67 out of 100 based on 15 critic reviews, indicating “generally favorable reviews.”
1923 was an instant hit and it becomes the most-watched Paramount+ premiere of all time in the U.S. with 7.4 million viewers. It also received positive reviews, with Variety critic Joshua Alston writing that “Mirren and Ford – both 80-ish, neither a stranger to action badassery – make for such a potent pairing, their chemistry alone is enough to make ‘1923’ feel like an elevated version of Sheridan’s neo-Western fare.”
