Paramount+ has shared the teaser for their highly anticipated original drama series as it makes its on-air debut during the Yellowstone Season 5 premiere. Starring Academy Award® winner Helen Mirren as Cara Dutton and Academy Award® nominee Harrison Ford as Jacob Dutton, 1923 is the next Dutton prequel series from Academy Award® nominee Taylor Sheridan and will expand the family’s legacy through Depression and Prohibition-era America.
1923 is set to debut on Sunday, December 18th, in the U.S. and Canada, but we have our first look at the show now. Interestingly, the teaser is narrated by 1883‘s breakout star, Isabel May, who fans will remember as the ill-fated but wildly-affective Elsa Dutton. May offers new dialogue and backstory on the Duttons as she speaks to the violent nature of this family. Take a look:

As for other territories, the series will premiere on Monday, December 19th, on Paramount+ in the U.K. and Australia. Premiere dates for other Paramount+ international markets are forthcoming.
‘1923’ is the ‘Next Installment of the Dutton Family Origin Story’
The next installment of the Dutton family origin story, 1923 “will introduce a new generation of Duttons led by patriarch Jacob (Ford) and matriarch Cara (Mirren). The series will explore the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home,” Paramount+ cites alongside the teaser.
1923 also stars Darren Mann (Animal Kingdom) as Jack Dutton, Michelle Randolph (A Snow White Christmas) as Elizabeth, James Badge Dale (Hightown) as John Dutton I, and Marley Shelton (Scream) as Emma Dutton. In addition, Brian Geraghty (Big Sky), Aminah Nieves (Blueberry) and Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones) round out the cast.
