Taylor Sheridan’s popular western has launched a franchise of authentic American stories dating back more than a century. And it seems that every big name in Hollywood – whether it’s in film or television – wants to be a part of it.
When it was recently announced that Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren would be directing the cast of the new prequel 1932, yellowstone Star Kelly Reilly (Beth Dutton) said what every actor must be thinking right now – “I want to be there.”
The new Yellowstone prequel 1932 will highlight another generation of Duttons
With yellowstone To be the most-watched drama on TV in 2021 — and the successful run of the prequel 1883 — Paramount continues to expand the franchise by introducing another prequel, 1932.
Sheridan says he chose this specific time period for the new prequel because fans will “see the kids where we met 1883 Now we are trying to raise another generation of Duttons as the Wild West becomes a playground for the Eastern elite.”
After the introduction of the first generation of Duttons—who settled the Montana land that became the Dutton Ranch— 1932 will follow a new generation “during the era of Western expansion, Prohibition and the Great Depression”.
Paramount has yet to reveal what roles Ford and Mirren will play. Fans assume so war of stars Alum will be the adult version of John Dutton Sr., who was a five-year-old 1883 played by Audie Rick.

Following Ford and Mirren’s casting announcement, Reilly opened up about the big news at the Paramount 2022 Upfronts. She told Entertainment Tonight that when she found out her first thought was “I want to be there,” even though that would be “impossible” because they’re her “ancestors.”
“Helen Mirren is someone I did my very first TV job with prime suspect when I was 16 years old. She was the first professional actor I worked with. She was amazing, she was fierce and brilliant and everything I wanted to be as an actress. You know, full of guts and heart,” Reilly recalled.
“The fact that she’s such a big fan of yellowstone Universe and her writing – I mean who isn’t from this writing because it’s so juicy. And the fact that she’s now going to play one of Beth Dutton’s ancestors… that’s a really sweet touch. And I’m so excited to see it.”
