Kevin Costner and Taylor Sheridan brought the cool back into the western with their surprise hit, Yellowstone. Of course, when you have a sensation that completely overtakes the world of television, it is only a matter of time before Sheridan and company go for a spin-off, which they first did with the prequel starring Sam Elliot and Tim McGraw in 1883. Now the franchise is expanding once again with another prequel; the series took to Instagram to give fans a first look at Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren on the set of the third Yellowstone property, 1923

The post is on the official 1923 Instagram account and features a collection of five photos in a slideshow of the first looks of both Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren. It’s accompanied by a caption that introduces people to their characters, Jacob and Cara Dutton. The first slide shows the couple in a loving embrace on their fence, with Ford kissing Mirren on the forehead. The second is Mirren basking in the sunlight of their ranch in a wide-brimmed hat.

The third showcases Harrison Ford’s Yellowstone wardrobe for 1923, including a three-piece suit and cowboy hat while he grips the reigns of his horse. In the fourth shot we get another angle of Mirren sans the hat, and the slides are rounded out by a final image of Ford walking toward the camera in the same suit while leading his horse. 

Harrison Ford’s delve into the Yellowstone universe in 1923 comes off the heels of finishing his time as Indiana Jones for his fifth and final appearance and the news that he is set to take over as Thunderbolt Ross in the Marvel Cinematic Universe following the death of William Hurt.

Helen Mirren is no stranger to the franchise work either, as she has recently appeared as Jason Statham’s mother in the Fast & Furious franchise and will soon appear as the primary antagonist in the DC sequel, Shazam! Fury of the Gods.

While Harrison Ford will presumably be busy with the role of Ross in Captain America 4 and Thunderbolts, and Helen Mirren is still one of the most sought-after actresses in the world, they are most likely on the hook for another season of 1923 since it has already been renewed for a second season

Yellowstone follows the story of the Dutton Ranch, with Kevin Costner, Cole Hauser, Kelly Reiley, Wes Bently, and more; doing all they can to keep their ranch thriving in the new world against rivals, activists, and anyone else who threatens them.

The prequel series,1883, followed the settling of the original Dutton ranch in Montana and starred Tim McGraw, Sam Elliot, and Faith Hill as they journeyed from Tennessee to Texas, where they joined a wagon train headed for Oregon. Harrison Ford’s Yellowstone prequel, 1923, will see Jacob Dutton, brother of Tim McGraw’s James Dutton, face Westward Expansion, Prohibition, and The Great Depression. It will release on December 18.
