This just in: We know of at least one Dutton who’ll survive 1923‘s freshman season.
On the heels of the Yellowstone prequel’s Season 2 renewal Friday, series star Harrison Ford confirmed that he will, indeed, be in the sophomore run.

Created by Yellowstone‘s Taylor Sheridan, 1923 introduces a new generation of Duttons, led by patriarch Jacob (played by Harrison Ford) and matriarch Cara (Helen Mirren), and explores the early-20th Century when pandemics, historic drought and the end of Prohibition all plague the mountain west and the Duttons who call it home.
Ford’s participation in Season 2 was far from a sure thing. In the most recent episode, Jacob was touch-and-go as he recovered from a brutal ambush by the sheep men, led by Banner Creighton (played by Game of Thrones alum Jerome Flynn). The attack took place in Episode 3 and left Jacob riddled with bullets and his nephew, John Sr., dead. (It also injured Jack and his fianceé Elizabeth; read a full recap for all the details.)
The Yellowstone prequel’s freshman run resumes Sunday, Feb. 5, with the first of four consecutive episodes, culminating in the Feb. 26 finale.
