Game of Thrones actor Jerome Flynn joins 1923 cast | Pretty Reel

The cast of 1923, the next prequel series set in the world of Yellowstone, continues to grow. It has now been reported (via Deadline) that Game of Thrones star Jerome Flynn has just joined the cast. In the series, Flynn will play Banner Creighton, a character described as “a hard-headed Scottish brogue and leader of the local shepherds.”

Recently, it was reported that Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sons of Anarchy) had also been cast in the series. Hollywood legends Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones, Star Wars) and Helen Mirren (The Queen, F9) lead the cast along with other confirmed actors including Brandon Sklenar (Vice), Darren Mann (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Michelle Randolph (The Resort), James Badge Dale (Iron Man 3), Marley Shelton (Scream), Brian Geraghty (Big Sky), Aminah Nieves (Blueberry) and Julia Schlaepfer (The Politician).

1923 will focus on the Dutton family as they struggle to survive historic drought, lawlessness, Prohibition, and an epidemic of cattle rustling, all clouded by Montana’s Great Depression. The series also tackles the end of World War I as it begins about five years later.

Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan produced 1923 with John Linson, Art Linson, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari and Ben Richardson.

1923 is the final prequel, and there are more to come

Primal Network

Created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson, Yellowstone is over four seasons on Paramount Network with Season 5 premiering in November. The show has expanded with multiple spinoffs as we previously saw the limited series 1883, which premiered on the Paramount+ streaming platform in 2021. Although the show was not developed with plans to further explore this part of the timeline, its success led to the announcement that it will be receiving a Bass Reeves sequel story titled 1883: The Bass Reeves Story.

Meanwhile, there is also another Yellowstone spinoff in active development. This one is called 6666 and although it was first announced as a Paramount+ exclusive, it has been reported that the show will be joining Yellowstone on the Paramount Network instead.

“Founded when the Comanches still ruled West Texas, no ranch in America is more steeped in Western history than 6666,” a description from the Paramount States series. “Still operating as it did two centuries ago, and encompassing an entire county, 6666 is where the rule of law and the laws of nature merge in a place where the most dangerous thing ‘we do is the next thing… The 6666 is synonymous with the relentless effort to breed the best horses and cattle in the world, and ultimately where world-class cowboys are born and made.

A premiere date has yet to be set for 1923 or 6666. You can catch the Yellowstone Season 5 premiere on November 13, 2022.
