As the saying goes, if it’s not broken and works really well, you should do a prequel, a sequel, and another prequel.
OK, maybe that’s not the right term, but It’s the strategy Paramount+ follows when creating new Yellowstone content. Back in February, the streamer also announced that, in addition to 1883 and the upcoming Yellowstone spin-off 6666, Taylor He and Sheridan would be making another Yellowstone prequel titled 1923!
What is 1923 about?
The streamer later revealed that the show’s original title, 1932, had been changed to 1923.
1923 will be a new origin story that “will introduce a new generation of the Dutton family and explore the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition, and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home,” according to a synopsis published in May.
Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan’s Mayor of Kingstown and 101 Studios, which also produces the television series Yellowstone and 1883, will create the programme.
According to Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of ViacomCBS Media Networks and MTV Entertainment Studios, “With the brilliant mind and gifted storytelling of Taylor Sheridan, we have created an entirely new world to explore with 1883 while expanding Yellowstone, and with 1932 [now 1923] we will open up a new chapter in this rapidly growing universe.”

Will it have more than one season?
While there’s been no official announcement, Deadline reports that there are plans to bring the show back for a second season, with negotiations already rumored to be underway to bring the cast back for another outing.
