Harrison Ford in Two Current TV Series: Shrinking and 1923
1923 Returns on Sunday, February 5
Come this weekend, TV audiences will be able to enjoy Harrison Ford in not one, but two current series. He plays a therapist in Apple’s new comedy Shrinking and returns as grizzled rancher Jacob Dutton in 1923, the Paramount Plus Yellowstone prequel series, coming back from its mid-season break this weekend.
1923 took a break four episodes into its inaugural season, which follows an earlier generation of the Dutton clan in Yellowstone as they build and maintain a life in rural Montana. There was speculation that the break was necessary to give the new shows from Taylor Sheridan some room to breathe, since the week after 1923’s fourth episode aired, Paramount debuted Season 2 of another Sheridan series, Mayor of Kingstown, starring Jeremy Renner.

Ratings and More
Thus far, 1923 is enjoying strong ratings from both critics and viewers, with an 89% critic’s score on Rotten Tomatoes and a 75% user score. One viewer raves, “Great show, just as good as 1883, and just as that show kept me coming back for more, this show has me glued to my seat. Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are both fantastic.”
The events of 1923 sit between two other Sheridan-created shows, 1883 and Yellowstone, which tell a sprawling, multi-generational narrative about power, progress, wealth, and land in the western spaces. The new show is set to receive two seasons with eight episodes each, and besides Ford, the cast includes Helen Mirren, Darren Mann, Michelle Randolph, James Badge Dale, Marley Shelton, Brian Geraghty, Aminah Nieves, and Jerome Flynn.
It’s been reported that Sheridan might bring more Yellowstone prequels to life, carrying the story forward into the 40s and 60s, though nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
