Where to watch 1923, the Yellowstone prequel series with Harrison Ford

What’s the biggest show on television right now? The answer may surprise you. If you look at Twitter, you might think it’s The White Lotus or one of those dreadful Real Housewives reality shows. If you read Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, you may think it’s Wednesday or Dahmer. But how many new shows have spawned an entire fictional universe, with spinoffs more successful than the last?

For five seasons, Yellowstone has been an unexpected hit with audiences. Its first spinoff, 1883, with country singers Tim McGraw and Faith Hill was also a hit, and so the Yellowstone universe has further expanded with 1923, a new limited series starring Star Wars and Indiana Jones legend Harrison Ford and Academy Award winner Helen Mirren. The show is set for release in December 2022, but where can you watch it?

While you can find the main Yellowstone series on The Paramount Network, you won’t find any of its spinoffs there. 1923 will stream exclusively on Paramount+.

While 1923 may lure you to Paramount+, there are many more shows and movies available on the platform to make your subscription worth your while. Shows like The Good FightStar Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, and The Twilight Zone and hit movies like The Lost City, Orphan: First Kill, and Smile are just a few of the titles that you won’t want to miss.

The third episode of 1923 will stream on January 1. The episode is called “The War Has Come Home” and was written by show creator Taylor Sheridan and directed by Ben Richardson. The official episode synopsis is as follows: “Jacob robs the local candy store. A massive herd of sheep take over the Livestock Council.”

The first season will last eight episodes. All previous episodes are available to stream exclusively on Paramount+. The second and final season will also contain eight episodes. No premiere date for that season has been announced.

How much does it cost?

You can save money if you commit to a one-year subscription, too.

Is 1923 worth watching?

We’re sold on this show simply because of two reasons: Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren. These two acting legends don’t do a lot of TV; in fact, this is Ford’s first leading role on television ever. To see them both living it up in the Prohibition-era west as Jacob and Cara Dutton is immensely appealing and promises to give them both ample opportunity to chew some scenery.

Also, co-creator and writer Taylor Sheridan is a great writer. Remember, prior to Yellowstone, he wrote two of the best thrillers in recent memory: Sicario and Hell or High Water. Even if you’re not a fan of the main Yellowstone series or its spinoff, 1883, you have to admit that the guy knows how to write a good story, and the combination of the leading actors and period setting makes 1923 one of the most anticipated shows of the year.
