Following the premiere of Yellowstone prequel 1923, Taylor Sheridan has revealed more details about the show’s second season. During an interview with Deadline, he explained, “Well, it’s really the second half of the season. This one is different than 1883 where I had the whole thing blocked out in my head. This one, I had no idea what I was going to do.”
In order to figure out the newest storyline, Sheridan stated that he went on a “journey” and he’s the one that is making calls to Paramount. “Which is probably the greatest call they ever got,” he continued. “Hey, I need to make more episodes to finish this story. I need to do this in two blocks. An eight episode block and a second eight episode block to wrap this up.”
He also admitted he couldn’t wrap 1923 in two episodes and do the story justice. “For them, it is great because they get more content. For me, I get more runway. So, that’s the thing about Paramount that’s been so great for me. They’re so malleable to the storyteller, or at least to me as the storyteller.”
Along with discussing the future of 1923, Taylor Sheridan spoke about how he was able to convince Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren to come back for more episodes. “They were excited,” he revealed, and also shared that the duo had only signed on for one season. However, he said they are eager to continue the story.
