BIG UPDATE: Yellowstone prequel 1944 – Everything we know so far from characters to plot details

The Yellowstone flagship may be ending with the second half of season five, but the story of the Dutton family will continue in yet another prequel 1944.

As the Yellowstone series prepares to wrap its current Dutton family tales (or at least Kevin Costner’s), a new chapter beckons with 1944, the latest prequel from the creative mind of Taylor Sheridan.

The new installment promises to leap 21 years ahead, continuing the family’s complex saga.

While the plot remains under wraps, the potential for characters from 1923 to appear in 1944 adds an intriguing layer to the anticipated narrative.

Amid speculation and scarce details, this prequel stirs excitement for fans eager to delve deeper into the Dutton family’s past.

The second part of season five of Yellowstone will conclude the current narratives of John Dutton’s family. But fans still have a lot to look forward to in the Yellowstone universe.

Apart from a sequel tentatively titled 2024, Sheridan is working on another prequel, 1944.

Unlike the 40-year leap from 1883 to 1923, the upcoming spinoff will fast-forward 21 years.

The original cast of 1883 was absent in 1923, yet there’s buzz that 1923’s younger characters could seamlessly transition to the new prequel.

This possibility would mark a first for the interconnected narratives Sheridan has created.

Although casting updates remain unconfirmed, the close of 1923’s initial season hinted that characters Spencer Dutton and Alexandra might lead the Dutton clan into the future.


This, of course, is pending their survival in the show’s forthcoming season.

The series is poised to be a continuation of 1923, the saga starring Harrison Ford and Dame Helen Mirren. Speculation swirls around whether 1944 will delve into a new Dutton family branch or the heirs of Ford and Mirren’s characters, yet details remain closely guarded.

No official announcements have been made, yet the historical context of the 1940s suggests a backdrop of significant wartime events.

Spencer Dutton, already seen in the throes of the First World War in 1923, might find himself in the midst of World War II.

D-Day in June 1944 was a critical moment in concluding the war.

Consequently, 1944’s narrative might center on homefront challenges and the Duttons’ ranching legacy during a time when many were called to frontline service.

The upcoming timeline for the Yellowstone universe is adjusting to new realities, with the conclusion of the main series anticipated in November 2024.

The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes delayed production schedules, propelling the second season of 1923 into a realm of uncertainty beyond its initially projected release.

Similarly, launch dates for the newly unveiled spinoffs, 1944 and 2024, remain up in the air, so stay tuned for more details.
