The prequel to Yellowstone, 1923, started on December 18 on Paramount Plus, and we can’t wait to meet the next generation of Duttons! For people who already like Yellowstone, the new show will be similar in how it tells the story of how our favorite ranch became what we know and love today.
In 1923, the ranch will be in a different time period, and the story will mostly be about an earlier version of the Dutton family in the years right before the Great Depression. Harrison Ford as Jacob Dutton and Helen Mirren as Cara Dutton are the main stars of the prequel.
Along with the patriarch and matriarch of the Dutton family, we’ll also follow the younger members of the Dutton family as they go through their own problems.
Have a look at:
- Who is Emmett in Yellowstone? Is Buck Taylor Leaving Yellowstone?
- Who Is The Female Singer On Yellowstone?
Spencer Dutton is one of these family members. We’ve seen him before in flashbacks on Yellowstone.
Who’s Spencer Dutton?
Spencer Dutton is Jacob’s nephew, and John Dutton Sr., Jacob’s right-hand man, is his older brother. Spencer is said to have seen terrible things that changed his life during the first World War, and he still feels the effects of that. We’ll see how his time in the war changed him as the season goes on.
In season four of Yellowstone, there was a short flashback scene with Spencer as a young boy. His father, James Dutton, was played by Tim McGraw, who also stars in the Yellowstone prequel series 1883.

Spencer is an adult in 1923, and the trailer shows him using his gun skills on what looks like a hunting trip. Brandon Sklenar plays Spencer. He also played Edward Mapplethorpe in the 2018 biopic Mapplethorpe.
Sklenar has kept a low profile over the years, but he has been in shows like Westworld and The Offer, which airs on Paramount Plus.
What’s 1923 about?
The official description from Paramount Plus says: “1923 focuses on the next two generations of the Dutton family as they struggle to survive a historic drought, lawlessness, Prohibition, and an epidemic of cattle theft. They all do this under the cloud of Montana’s Great Depression, which happened almost a decade before the rest of the country.”
The show has a big cast with both well-known actors from Hollywood and new actors who are just starting out. The story in 1923 starts about 40 years after what happened in 1883.
The first episode of 1923 is now available on Paramount Plus, and it will be shown for the first time on Paramount tonight after the new Yellowstone episode… Follow us only on Lee Daily for more news like this.
