1923 is the new prequel to the Yellowstone world, which will star Oscar-winning actors Harrison Ford (Star Wars) and Helen Mirren (The Queen). The story is expected to have two seasons of eight episodes each, so we already know that the ending will be open-ended.
Pre-production began in Butte, Montana in July 2022, while filming officially kicked off on August 22. At the end of the month, Anaconda was chosen as another filming location. Throughout the series we will be seeing several locations, such as Hamilton, Pony, Park City and Valier in Montana. In addition to Africa and Europe.
Taylor Sheridan is the creator of the mother series that is constantly adding new stories to its universe. The Indiana Jones actor spoke about the production during an interview with Variety Fair and confessed "It's not just the physical life that's difficult. A big part of the story is that they face challenges from modernity and against their way of life, their freedom and the opportunities they've had. The looming depression and all the stresses, economic and social, lead to this very unstable moment in American history".
