1923 is a Western drama television series that serves as a prequel to the popular show Yellowstone. Set in the 1920s, it follows the Dutton family as they deal with challenges to their ranch and way of life in Montana. The show stars Hollywood legends Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford as Cara and Jacob Dutton, the ancestors of the modern-day Duttons seen in Yellowstone. Cara and Jacob struggle to hold on to their massive ranch from external threats as well as family infighting.

While Yellowstone focuses on the modern Duttons defending their land and legacy, 1923 goes back in time to show how the family first built their empire in Montana. It portrays the wild frontier days when the West was still up for grabs.

Cara and Jacob employ an army of cowboys and confront problems like drought, expansion by the federal government, and conflicts with Native Americans. They fight to make their mark on Montana and establish a ranching dynasty for generations to come.

The show has an impressive production pedigree. It is co-created by Yellowstone's Taylor Sheridan and John Linson. The pair aim to capture the gritty realism and high stakes of life on the frontier in the 1920s.

Sheridan's experience writing neo-Westerns like Yellowstone and Hell or High Water brings authenticity to 1923. The show strives to depict an accurate portrait of the challenges faced by ranchers at the time.

The spectacular Montana vistas provide a sweeping backdrop to the drama. Shooting on location gives 1923 a true sense of place and immerses viewers in the untamed world the Duttons are trying to tame.

While staying true to history, 1923 also incorporates fictionalized events and characters. The Dutton family itself is not based on any real-life ranching clan. This allows the showrunners creative freedom in crafting dramatic storylines.

Early reviews praised 1923 for its high production values, strong acting, and carrying on the Dutton family saga. Critics noted the show's ability to work as a standalone drama while also tying in to the popular Yellowstone universe.

With Paramount Network's marketing muscle behind it, 1923 aims to be another hit installment in the growing Yellowstone franchise. It offers viewers the chance to go back in time and see how the Dutton dynasty first left its mark on Montana.

1923 is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (8 episodes). The series first aired on December 18, 2022.
