Paramount+ has revealed the first teaser trailer for 1923, the Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren-led Yellowstone prequel.
The teaser was revealed during the Season 5 premiere of Yellowstone, and ominous words that set the tone for this period piece that promises to be a “Yellowstone origin story” are heard throughout.

‘Violence has always haunted this family. It followed us from the Scottish highlands and the slums of Dublin. And it followed us here. And where it doesn’t follow, we hunt it down. We seek it.”
1923 is set to debut on Paramount+ on December 18, and it takes place a century before Kevin Costner’s John Dutton III is in charge of the legendary Yellowstone Dutton Ranch in Montana. Ford plays Jacob Dutton and Mirren will be his wife, Cara.
“He’s the silverback,” Ford said of his character. “He’s responsible for that branch of the family. These are two people with a very strong bond to each other who are facing really complicated circumstances.”
This series will be the second prequel in the Yellowstone universe and follows 1883, a spin-off that stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as James and Margaret Dutton and tells the story of them leading their family from Tennessee to a new home in Montana.
If you can’t get enough Yellowstone and you’ve already watched everything the series has to offer, we’ve gathered a list of more shows that will hopefully help with that void left in your Yellowstone-loving heart.
