Harrison Ford is “excited” to begin work on the second season of “1923,” suggesting his character doesn’t die in the first installment of the hit cowboy prequel series.
Ford is one half of the iconic period drama’s leading actors, sharing the screen with Helen Mirren in their portrayal of Jacob and Cara Dutton, owners of the Yellowstone-Dutton ranch. Fans of the “Yellowstone” universe were introduced to Ford and Mirren’s legacy on the ranch in December, and were initially expecting the show to run for a single, limited season like the original prequel series, “1883,” created by Taylor Sheridan.
Now that the show has been picked up for a second season, fans are puzzling through the various ways the series will fill in gaps on the Dutton family tree.

Ford, who also stars in the hilarious and heartfelt Apple TV+ series, “Shrinking,” told The Hollywood Reporter (THR) Feb. 8 that after two years of doing nothing during the COVID-19 pandemic, he took on both shows without reading a script. Obviously, we’re thrilled he did so, but now he’s giving away way too many plot spoilers (kind of like his co-star, Brandon Sklenar).
“I really didn’t realize how much work 1923 was going to be, and I absolutely feel it’s worth it,” Ford told THR. “I’m excited to do another season of both [‘1923’ and ‘Shrinking’].” So I guess that clears up all questions over whether Ford will survive the first season of “1923.”
Is it just me, or is one of the best parts of Sheridan’s writing style the notion no character is safe in the “Yellowstone” universe? Despite some amazing cliff-hangers this season, the major aspects of the series keep being outed by the cast before the next episode can tell the story.

Then again, if I was doing something as exciting and epic as “1923,” I don’t think I’d be able to keep my mouth shut, either. So who am I to judge?
