The Yellowstone universe continues drawing in fans, and the latest show in the franchise is no exception.
When 1923 debuted on Paramount+ in December 2022, viewers immediately became enamored with a new set of Duttons. They saw Jacob (Harrison Ford) and Cara Dutton (Helen Mirren) strive to keep the Montana lands originally owned by Jacob’s brother James (Tim McGraw in 1883). What’s more, they witnessed the couple face their own trials and tribulations, which included the Great Depression looming over their heads.
Viewers also saw Spencer (Brandon Sklenar) fall in love across the word with Alexandra (Julia Schlaepfer) across the world. Unfortunately, the two fell apart as quickly as they came together but something tells us it’s not the last we’ve seen of the couple.
Luckily, fans will get to see more from Jacob, Cara and the rest of their family, because the show officially got picked up for season 2. While there aren’t many details out about what’s to come, it will sure to be a tale folks won’t be forgetting anytime soon. Here’s what to know about 1923 season 2, including cast, release date, trailer, news and more.
Will there be a 1923 season 2?
On February 3, Paramount+ announced that 1923 got renewed for season 2. According to Variety, the latest Yellowstone spin-off became “the most-watched Paramount+ premiere of all time in the U.S. with 7.4 million viewers.”
While there’s no official indication that season 2 will be the final season, actor Brandon Sklenar seemed to think otherwise. When speaking in a Q&A with the 1923 cast hosted by The Hollywood Reporter in May, he seemingly inferred that all the storylines will be tied up by the end of season 2.
“It’s [a] bookend,” he said during the virtual event. “[The series is] still limited, but I think of it as one piece — there’s just a split in the middle, but it’s all one piece. It will conclude.”
Who will be in the cast of 1923 season 2?
Based on the events from season 1, here’s who is likely to return for 1923 season 2:
Harrison Ford as Jacob Dutton
Helen Mirren as Cara Dutton
Darren Mann as Jack Dutton
Michelle Randolph as Elizabeth “Liz” Strafford
Brandon Sklenar as Spencer Dutton

Has 1923 season 2 started filming?
Unfortunately, there’s no official date for when 1923 season 2 will start filming. In a June report from Deadline, it was revealed that production is “delayed indefinitely” due to ongoing WGA writers’ strike that began on May 2.
NBC Montana noted that when speaking to Bill Melvin on June 8, the manager of the Butte Civic Center, he mentioned that production was supposed to return to the city of Butte and begin on June 5. What’s more, the show is paying the town $75 thousand per month to use the Civic Center through the end of the year. While the Paramount+ series has filed requests to extend their contract with the city, he remained optimistic that everything will be good to go after the strike ends.
“We are going to follow the contract as we have it. That’s all we can do,” he said in another interview.

Will Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren return for 1923 season 2?
Presently, it looks like both Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren will return for 1923 season 2. When creator Taylor Sheridan spoke to Deadline in December 2022 about the possibility of them coming back to portray Jacob and Cara Dutton, he explained how thrilled they were to continue making more episodes.
“They were excited,” he told the outlet. “They only signed on originally for one season. They were so eager to continue it … Harrison made a comment at one point, he goes, ‘Taylor I think I’m making the best thing I’ve made in 20 years.’ And my response to him was, ‘What the f— did you make 20 years ago as good as this? What was that? I missed that one. What was it?’”
Harrison later commented on a season 2 return to The Hollywood Reporter in February, agreeing with Taylor’s sentiments.
“[Shrinking] came along, and then, very quickly after that, 1923 came along,” he explained about his work schedule. “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.”
Where can I watch and stream 1923 season 2?
When 1923 season 2 airs new episodes, folks will be able to watch the drama exclusively on Paramount+. While it’s unclear whether it will eventually premiere on cable TV on Paramount Network, it’s best to prepare yourselves by heading over to the popular streamer.
In order to start watching 1923 season 2, you’ll need to set up an account.
