How Many Episodes Are In The 1923 Show?

Many people ask: How Many Episodes Are In The 1923 Show? The newest installment, 1923, a prequel to Yellowstone set in the 1900s, gives us a look into the lives of the Duttons. 

Yellowstone has become one of the biggest TV shows with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Hailing from creator Taylor Sheridan, the Yellowstone universe is continuously expanding; from the likes of 6666 and 1883, there’s no stopping the Duttons. 

Name Change 

When Paramount announced a new show in February 2022, it was 1932. However, by June 2022, the show had been renamed 1923, the same year the show was set.

The backshift on the name allowed for the show to address several things. First, it addresses the start of the prohibition in the show’s synopsis. 

Secondly, the show looks at the ban’s effects on Montana and those who live there. If the show had retained its name, it wouldn’t have made sense seeing as prohibition began in 1920 and ended in 1933.

The effects of World War 1 and the Great Depression, World War 1 were from 1914 to 1918, which was only a part of the show if they had kept the original name.

What Is The Show 1923 About?

With the name change, the show synopsis also changed. The focus wouldn’t be on the end of prohibition.

Still, it would now look at the lives of the Duttons as they deal with the epidemic of cattle theft, the aftermath of World War 1, and Lawlessness.

The beginning of the Great Depression and the beginning of prohibition. All this means that we would see a lot of action. 

In the trailer, we see Helen Mirren Cara Dutton cocking a shotgun. No one ever crossed a Dutton and lived to see daylight.

While the prequel 1883 followed the first-generation Duttons as they made the dangerous trek to Montana and established themselves on their ranch, 1923 will follow their descendants.

According to a report from the show streaming service, the show will look at the lives of the Duttons.

It will explore a time when events such as the world war, droughts, pandemics, the end of prohibition, and the Great Depression all affected the west and those who call it home.

Who Are In The Cast? 

The show will have a star-studded cast, with Harrison Ford set to star as Jacob Dutton, the family patriarch.

Ford has had a long and varied career. He exchanged his hat from Indiana Jones for a cowboy hat in 1923.

Beside him will be Helen Miren as Cara Dutton. The matriarch of the Dutton family hails from Ireland. Helen Mirren’s career started in England on stage, appearing in shows such as Cleopatra and Antony.

In the US, she has starred in several films, including The Queen, in which she won an Oscar, The Last Station, F9 the fate of the furious, and The Debt, among other prolific roles. Together they starred as a married couple for four decades.

With such a strong pair, the supporting cast members include Darren Mann plays Jack, a dedicated rancher and Jacob’s great-nephew.

When Will 1923 Premiere?

1923 is set to premiere on December 18, 2022, on the Paramount Network. The first season of 1983 includes eight episodes, each of which will run for around 60 minutes.

In addition, it’s unlikely that the new series will only have one season. Sources at Paramount+ have also been keen to avoid naming the series a limited we can only hope that the show isn’t a one-and-done similar to 1883.

The first episode of 1923 is set to premiere on December 18, 2022, on the Paramount+ Network.

The release date for the show is as follows:

Episode 1 release is on December 18, followed by episode 2 on January 1. Consequently, episode 3 will be released on January 8, with episode 4 on January 15.

Other release dates are January 22 for episode 5 and episode 6 on January 29. That sums up the January release dates,

In addition, episodes 7 and 8 will be released on February 5 and 12, respectively.

How Does The Show Fit Into The Yellowstone Universe?

Whether it’s a prequel or sequel to Yellowstone, Taylor Sheridan makes it fit perfectly, like a well-fitting puzzle.

In this case, the Yellowstone puzzle we are looking at has 1923. 1923 continues with the family drama of 1883 and is set approximately 40 years after 1883.

John Dutton Sr (Tim Mcgraw) is dead, we saw him die in a previous flashback, and his wife Margaret decides to call on his brother Jacob (played by Harrison Ford). 

Now with Jacob as the head of the family, we soon learn that Margaret is no more and John, one of two (Elsa is dead) Dutton kids, is all grown up.

1923, will most probably look at how Jacob came to oversee the ranch, his relationship with John Dutton sr, played by John Badge Dale, and their fight to protect their land from those who want to take it from them, the Whitfields or other villainous characters.

Why Should I Watch 1923?

If it’s not evident yet, there’s nothing better than being a part of the Dutton family, even if it’s vicariously. The casting is impeccably well enough to catch your attention. 

However, the mix of adventure, action, family drama, and violence that the Duttons are known for should be enough to get you seated. The show promises a rich legacy that mixes a historical approach.

Whether looking for a good western to keep you warm on Sundays or a show with an excellent script and storyline, 1923 offers that and much more.

Is There A 1923 Trailer 

Paramount released the trailer for the new show in November, and it was definitely worth the wait. In the trailer, you can hear Cara Dutton and Jacob threatening those who wish them harm.

You can also hear Mirren (Cara) threatening Creighton. Men kill with bullets. However, you have decided to pick a fight with me, and she (Cara) kills much slower.

The season will be the best if her words are anything to go by. Plus, now we see where Beth gets her Moxy.

In addition, the trailer includes a young Teona Rainwater at her boarding school.

While we can’t yet be sure where her storyline will lead, we can be sure that Sheridan will most likely explore the Lives of the Native Americans during that time as they have significant plots in his shows.

How Many Yellowstone Spin-Offs Are There?

Taylor Sheridan has put down roots for the Dutton Family and Yellowstone universe, creating an incredible universe for the Paramount Network. As is with any universe, it has branches.

Currently, there are three spin-offs: 6666, a continuation of Yellowstone starring Jefferson white (Jimmy ). The show looks at ranching life at the place where cowboys are made.

1883 (this was a limited series ); follows the Duttons across the great plains as they search for a place to call home. Stars Tim Mcgraw and Faith Hill.

The newest addition and a new follow-up to 1883 are titled 1883: The Bass Reeves Story starring David Oyelowo. There’s little about this new show. However, we can expect Taylor Sheridan’s incredible vision to continue.


Whether you love or hate them, the Duttons will do whatever they must guard what is theirs. And in a world full of lawlessness and their only livelihood is cattle retirement, you can bet your hat that they will fight to the tooth to keep their share of Montana and Yellowstone.
