What a difference a decade makes.
Per the streamer, the tweak was made because the series will “encompass the end of World War 1 and the start of prohibition.”
The newest chapter of what Paramount+ is calling Yellowstone‘s “origin story” — which began with the wildly popular 1883 prequel spinoff — will introduce viewers to the next two generations of the franchise’s central family, the Duttons “as they struggle to survive historic drought, lawlessness and prohibition, and an epidemic of cattle theft; all battled beneath the cloud of Montana’s great depression, which preceded the nation by almost a decade.”
The streamer first announced
1932 1923 in February. “Taylor Sheridan has put roots down for the Dutton Family tree that stand strong and tall, with many branches that continue to engage record-breaking audiences,” executive producer David C. Glasser said via statement at the time. “It is awe-inspiring to work with Taylor, ViacomCBS and the entire team on this universe.”
There’s still no word on who Ford and Mirren will play in the prequel. There’s also no official confirmation on whether
1932 1923 — which is slated to debut on Paramount+ in December — will be a self-contained limited series the way that 1883 turned out to be.
