Times can change, as can family composition, but there are constants 1923 fans of the show will recognize. “You see, the Dutton families have similar genetics,” he says david glasser, Executive Producer of 1923, as well as 1883 and yellowstone. “You are tough. You are not without a heart and soul. They are about family and protecting their heritage, protecting the land they own. You will see that there are many similarities between the men and women of the ranch.”
So who are these men and women this time? There are some cast members and characters whose involvement remains under wraps, but here are a few that may be revealed…
When 1923 begins, Jacob and Cara Dutton have already established themselves as the new patriarchs and matriarchs. Whatever happened to James and Margaret, it’s been a long time. “We’re going to move on with them after they’ve been there for a while,” says Glasser. “They cemented theirs [roles] in the city.”
John Dutton Sr. (played by high town‘s James Badge Dale), was just a little boy 1883, but now in middle age he is the right manager of the ranch alongside his uncle Jacob. While they tend to the cattle and the land, his wife Emma (played Marley Shelton), helps with Cara to maintain the household and the family.
Her son Jack (played by Chilling Adventures of Sabrina‘s darren man) follows the same path as his father and works as a ranch hand to earn his place in the hierarchy. One day he will inherit the whole kingdom, as will his descendants. Jack is the great-grandfather of Costner’s character.
Other characters who lived in Yellowstone during this era include Elizabeth Strafford (played by Michelle Randolph), an arsonist preparing to marry Jack, and Brian Geraghty as Zane, who is not a blood member of the family but remains one of their most loyal foremen.
In all its iterations yellowstone has often acknowledged that the settlers who came to control this land of Montana are not actually its first or only residents. Also in today’s series there are ongoing conflicts and unresolved disputes between the tribes of the region and the Dutton family. Indigenous life is taken into account 1923 to. “As [Sheridan] “Always did in his other worlds, Native American stories and stories from that era will play a role in this show,” says Glasser.
As part of this story, Aminah Nieves stars as Teonna, a young woman who was forced to attend a government-run boarding school that is now seen as a shameful part of America’s past. Such schools were notorious for their brutal practices and the way they intentionally repressed traditional languages and cultural practices among Indigenous children, who were often removed from their families and communities.
Among the Duttons’ greatest threats is a group known as “the Sheep People,” rival ranchers who rely on the same grasslands as the Duttons, and they are willing to fight them for it. Their leader is Banner Creighton, a Scottish Shepherd played by game of Thrones‘ Jerome Flynn.
The sheepmen are also struggling to survive, and Jacob and Cara Dutton are responsible for their own families. While Costner’s generation of Duttons is extremely wealthy, a century ago the Duttons were far tougher. “You can lose everything in one season,” says Ford. “You’re dealing with the weather, the economy, the influx of railroads and the changes in the livestock business. It’s a complicated time. It’s a volatile time. They are rich in land but they are poor in cash because it all goes back into the business, into the ranch. Everything is hard fought. I don’t consider her rich. I think they have a certain level of power based on their historical presence in the area based on hard work.”
