It’s already been announced that 1923 is officially getting two seasons, but what’s next for the Dutton family? Could another prequel be making its way into the Yellowstone pipeline? A Paramount Network Exec says there’s more to come for television’s number one family.
Last week, Paramount Network officials held a community thank-you event at Hamilton, Montana’s City Hall. Yellowstone has greatly impacted the Montana economy, but it was the haphazard announcement of a “1944” to be filmed in the Bitterroot Valley that’s shocking fans.
As local Ravalli Republic reports, Tom Prince, Executive Vice President of Production at 101 Studios, described “1944” as a follow-up to 1923, which will continue filming in Butte for a Season 2 this year:
“Of course, we’ve got 1923, we’ve got the sequel, we’re not letting the cat out of the bag, it’s going to be called ‘1944.’ My guess is that it’ll be shooting largely in the Bitterroot Valley because it has to take place at what is Chief Joseph Ranch.”Tom Prince, 101 Studios
While announcing the extension of 1923 to a two-season, 16-episode epic for the first time back in October, Paramount hinted at not one, but two more Yellowstone spinoffs. And they would contain the Dutton family’s struggles to “hang onto the ranch in the 1940s and the 1960s.”
