The Yellowstone franchise just added some major starpower as a report has surfaced that both Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford will be starring in the series prequel, 1932.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the two Hollywood legends have been cast into rolls for the second Yellowstone origin story from creator Taylor Sheridan. The series will stream exclusively on Paramount+ and is expected to launch sometime in December.

It was known three months ago that the universe was expanding to 1932.

The new chapter will focus on the Duttons during Prohibition and the Great Depression, Paramount+ said at the time. However, character details for both Mirren and Ford are not being released at this time.

Mirren has previously starred in both Prime Suspect and HBO’s Catherine the Great miniseries. She also earned a Best Actress Oscar for her role in 2007’s The Queen. Mirren has collected multiple Primetime Emmys for her work in the aforementioned Prime Suspect, as well as The Passion of Ayn Rand, and Elizabeth I. 

Ford is most famous for his role as Han Solo in the Star Wars franchise and as the titular character in Indiana Jones. He has been in many other movies and shows as a character actor and by playing himself.

1932 is the next in Sheridan’s Yellowstone evolution, after the first show exploded into a massive hit the obvious historical opportunities began development. There has been some viewer confusion as the original series streams exclusively on NBCUniversal-backed Peacock — which was agreed to as part of a horrible licensing deal that came before CBS All Access shifted to Paramount+. It is an issue that they did not let happen to Ghosts. 

Yellowstone still debuts on Paramount Network.
