When will 1923 season 2 release?

Who will be seen in 1923 season 2?
As per the last information, Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren will be continuing in season 2 of 1923. Apart from them, it remains to be seen who gets retained and who will be the new members of the cast.
What went behind the renewal of 1923 season 2?
According to Collider, the renewal of 1923 for a season two was foreshadowed by Series Creator Taylor Sheridan. This is because in an interview to Deadline, the writer, director and showrunner of the series had revealed that once he started mapping out the eight-episode Season 1, he realized that he needed an extra batch of episodes to be able to tell the Dutton story the way he wanted. Paramount too promptly gave Sheridan the extra episodes, which has cost the streaming platform a whooping amount of an additional quarter-billion dollars.
The Dutton family is here to stay
With 1923 eyeing at a season 2, the flagship series Yellowstone entered a hiatus and is scheduled to return with its fifth season only in Summer. This means that the Dutton family will enter radio silence pretty soon. With these two series already underway, and another spin-off called 1883: The Bass Reeves Story in the pipeline, this is surely not the end of the Dutton family and we can be getting to know more of their past soon.
