1923 Season 2: Renewed, Cast, Story & Everything We Know

The second season of the Yellowstone spinoff series, 1923, is highly anticipated after the success of its first season. Set in the titular year, 1923 serves as a prequel to the modern-day ranch story of Yellowstone, as well as a sequel to the previous spinoff, 1883. Starring Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren as Jacob and Cara Dutton, the heads of an earlier generation of the Dutton family, the series explores their struggles in the time just before the Great Depression.

Like its predecessors, 1923 has received critical acclaim, boasting a 91% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Its premiere episode even set a record for Paramount Plus, attracting 7.4 million viewers according to Deadline. The first season ended with tragedy and uncertainty, suggesting that the Duttons may lose their ranch in the near future. As fans eagerly await the second season, here is some news regarding its production and updates. Unfortunately, the production of 1923 season 2 has encountered difficulties due to the ongoing Hollywood strikes. The show has lost its filming location at the Butte Civic Center in Montana, which was used as a sound stage for the first season.

With the strikes pushing back production, the availability of the location remains uncertain.

The production team is currently searching for an alternative location, but it remains unclear when shooting will actually commence. Despite the challenges, fans can take solace in the fact that 1923 has been renewed for a second season by Paramount Plus. The eight-episode first season left many storylines unresolved, indicating the need for further exploration of the Dutton family's saga during the Roaring '20s. The official release date for season 2 has yet to be announced, but based on the production schedule of creator Taylor Sheridan's previous shows, it is possible that the season will be released shortly after filming is completed.

While the cast for season 2 has not been officially confirmed, it is expected that Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren will continue to lead the series. Other cast members, such as Brandon Sklenar, Julia Schlaepfer, Timothy Dalton, Michelle Randolph, Darren Mann, and Aminah Nieves, are likely to return to resolve their respective characters' storylines. As for the plot of season 2, no details have been released yet. However, it is safe to assume that the season will continue where the first season left off. The main focus will likely be on the Dutton family's struggle to retain control of their ranch, with antagonist Whitfield doing everything in his power to prevent them from paying their overdue property taxes.

Additionally, unresolved storylines involving Spencer, Alex, Liz, Jack, and Teonna will be further explored and resolved. Overall, 1923 serves as a crucial connection between the Yellowstone franchise's past and present, offering insight into the Dutton family's complex history. While fans eagerly await the release of season 2, they can take comfort in knowing that the series has been renewed and will continue to captivate audiences with its gripping storyline and stellar performances.
