1923 Season 2 Will Still Film, In Part, In Montana

Taylor Sheridan's Dutton universe is expanding even after the conclusion of Yellowstone. The franchise now includes multiple spin-offs, with the upcoming second season of 1923, a prequel series featuring Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford portraying an earlier generation of the Dutton family in the American West.

Paramount+ has confirmed that 1923, which takes place in the early twentieth century amidst pandemics, historic droughts, and the end of Prohibition, will be returning for another chapter. However, there have been some complications behind the scenes for the show's second season. Initially, the Butte Civic Center in Montana was contracted to serve as a sound stage for the production.

Unfortunately, ongoing production delays caused by strikes from the actors and writers' guilds led to the termination of their agreement. The series had been paying $75,000 per month to use the Civic Center and had requested an extension on their contract when production was initially delayed in May.

Nevertheless, there is some good news as it has been confirmed that the show will return to Butte for at least part of its filming. Show producer Charlie Skinner has confirmed this, although no startup date or filming permits have been set. The series will not return to the Civic Center and will need to find a new location.

As for the second season of 1923, there is no premiere date announced yet. Given Taylor Sheridan's busy schedule with other projects like Yellowstone spin-offs, original shows, and future seasons of 1923, it is unclear when he will be able to return to work on the Duttons. Therefore, it is difficult to predict when the show will make its return.

One thing that has been confirmed is that season two will be the show's last. Brandon Sklenar, who plays Spencer Dutton, clarified that there will be a definite conclusion at the end of the second season. The series is limited, but Sklenar considers it as one piece with a split in the middle.

The show will come to a conclusion.

While Paramount+ has not officially announced the cast for the second season, Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren seem to be confirmed for their return. Both actors expressed their excitement to continue with the series. Ford stated that he took the job on faith, trusting that the creators would deliver a good script, and he feels it's worth it. Mirren shares the sentiment, considering it happy news and looking forward to the development of her character. It is likely that many of the original cast members will return for the second season, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Taylor Sheridan views the second season as the second half of season one. He made the decision to expand the story into two blocks of eight episodes each to do the story justice. This will provide more content for the viewers and more runway for Sheridan to wrap up the narrative.
