1923 season 2: Everything we know so far

All about 1923 season 2

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren in 1923.

As a franchise, Yellowstone goes far beyond a single show. That’s partially because series co-creator Taylor Sheridan is a very prolific writer and also because Paramount sold off the streaming rights for Yellowstone to Peacock. The studio only came to regret that decision when it needed a hit for Paramount+. So far, Sheridan has delivered two Paramount+ exclusive Yellowstone prequels: 1883 and 1923. The former was always going to be a one-season series, but 1923 has a second season on the way.

The only bad news for fans of the franchise is that 2024 is primarily going to be about the final episodes of Yellowstone. But 1923 recently made its first major addition to the cast, and the Austin Business Journal is reporting that season 2 will be filmed at ATX Studios in Austin, Texas. Now, it’s time to share everything we know so far about 1923 season 2.

Who is starring in 1923 season 2?

Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford in 1923.

Between the two of them, Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren have spent decades as movie stars. That’s why it was such a coup that they signed on for anything on TV, much less a two-season series. They will both be back as Jacob and Cara Dutton.

Additionally, the following performers are either confirmed or expected to return for the second season.

  • Sebastian Roché as Father Renaud
  • Darren Mann as Jack Dutton
  • Michelle Randolph as Elizabeth Strafford
  • Aminah Nieves as Teonna Rainwater
  • Brandon Sklenar as Spencer Dutton
  • Robert Patrick as Sheriff William McDowell
  • Jerome Flynn as Banner Creighton
  • Timothy Dalton as Donald Whitfield

Who’s joining the cast in 1923 season 2?

Jennifer Carpenter in Dexter.

Thus far, there has only been a single addition to the 1923 cast. Former Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter has signed on to portray Mamie Fossett in a recurring role through season 2. Mamie is “a highly capable U.S. Deputy Marshall who serves warrants and makes arrests with confidence ahead of her time.”

In addition to playing Debra Morgan for eight seasons of Dexter and in the revival series Dexter: New Blood, Carpenter has appeared in Limitless, The Enemy Within, and The Exorcism of Emily Rose.

What’s going to happen in 1923 season 2?

Helen Mirren in 1923.

Considering that we know the Duttons own Yellowstone Ranch through the events of the original series, it seems likely that the family will retain ownership despite the dire straights that Jacob and Cara are facing at the end of 1923 season 1. Donald Whitfield has the Duttons in a vulnerable spot because he paid the sizable taxes that they owed the government. If the Duttons can’t repay the debt by the end of 1923, then Whitfield will own all of their land. Since we know that didn’t come to pass, the real mystery is how the Duttons were able to pull that off.

Is 1923 going to go beyond season 2?

Brandon Sklenar and Julia Schlaepfer in 1923.

No. Sheridan has lined up another prequel series, 1944, which may bring back some characters from 1923. However, Sheridan has already told Deadline in 2022 that he plans to wrap up 1923 within the eight episodes of season 2.

“This one is different than 1883, where I had the whole thing blocked out in my head,” said Sheridan. “This one, I had no idea what I was going to do. I just went on a journey myself, and I’m the one that made the call to the network, which is probably the greatest call they ever got. ‘Hey, I need to make more episodes to finish this story. I need to do this in two blocks. An eight-episode block and a second eight-episode block to wrap this up. I can’t wrap it up in two episodes and do the story justice. For them, it is great because they get more content. For me, I get more runway.”

When will 1923 season 2 premiere?

Harrison Ford in 1923.

Assuming the second season begins production in 2024, 1923 will likely premiere on Paramount+ in 2025. The final season of Yellowstone is dropping on Paramount Network in November of this year, and even if 1923 season 2 was ready to go by then, it wouldn’t make sense to release both shows at once.

The best binge worthy shows of all time

For most of TV's history, binge-watching wasn't really a thing. You watched one episode of your favorite show every week, and if you really loved it, you eagerly awaited the next one. With the advent first of home video, though, and then of streaming, and of Netflix in particular, binging became the default way many viewers consume TV.

While binging a show is great for many, not all shows are meant to be consumed that way. Sometimes, you want to let an episode breathe so that you can fully understand it before moving on to the next. For the shows on this list, though, binging is the way to go. These are the 10 most binge-worthy shows of all time.

The best shows and movies to watch on Apple TV Plus in July
Apple TV+ has an impressive library that includes great movies and shows

When computer company Apple announced that it was getting into the streaming TV game, there were plenty of people who were skeptical about the company's ability to pull it off. Why would the tech giant, which is most known for the Macintosh and the iPhone, have any credibility in making television shows? It doesn't seem the two ideas would mesh in any meaningful way, but in the years since Apple TV Plus launched, the company has come up with some pretty impressive original shows, and it picked up a Best Picture Oscar on top of that.
What's even more impressive is that these Apple TV shows and movies run the gamut from comedy to drama, and are all set in wildly different and imaginative places. Apple may be best known for making great phones, but it turns out it knows how to tell pretty interesting stories, too. These Apple TV movies and shows are the cream of the crop and the best on this streaming service.

The Last of Us season 2: Everything we know so far
What's next for The Last of Us
Joel and Ellie drive the narrative of The Last of Us

The Last of Us bombarded television screens like a post-apocalyptic virus in January 2023. The thrilling adaptation of the Playstation classic resoundingly recaptured the dark, foreboding storytelling of the video games while giving stars performers Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey a platform to show off their fantastic acting skills. The first season didn't sway far from the source material, neatly ending the ninth episode right where the maiden game concluded.

Joel and Ellie escape from the hospital where Ellie's brain is going to be harvested in an effort to end the undead pandemic worldwide. Joel's loyalty and selfishness propelled him to slaughter the doctors who were going to attempt the surgery, and his lies and deceit seemed to raise Ellie's eyebrows at least a little bit.
