1923 Season 2 latest news
According to NBC Montana, 1923 Season 2 has been added to the growing list of shows that have been pushed back due to the Writers Guild of America’s strike for fair pay. Production was scheduled to resume on June 19 in Butte, Montana, but it will now be delayed until the strike comes to an end and more scripts are written.
1923 Season 2 Expected Release Date
The official release date for 1923 Season 2 has yet to be announced. However, based on the series schedule, Season 2 is expected to premiere in 2024. However, with the writer’s strike delaying production for an unknown period, that date may be pushed back. The series has been delayed due to the WGA writers’ strike, and because the WGA does not appear to be close to reaching an agreement with the AMPTP, it could be several months, if not a year, before 1923 season 2 begins production.
The first season began filming in August 2022 and was released on the streaming service three months later in December, resulting in a tight production window. It’s unclear when Season 2 filming will resume; if it starts in the summer, more 1923 could be released before the end of the year. But that appears to be less likely.
What will be the storyline?
Season 2 of 1923 hasn’t had its plot revealed, but it is safe to assume that the season 1 storyline will be continued. Whitfield paid overdue property tax on the Dutton ranch at the end of season one, and the land will be his if the Duttons do not pay him back within a couple of months. Season 2’s main storyline should be the lengths Jacob and Cara will go to keep control of their ranch. Whitfield will undoubtedly do everything in his power to keep the Duttons from paying, and the outcome of their escalating feud could dominate the final season. Several other loose ends should be resolved in 1923 season 2.
The production schedule has been pushed back indefinitely due to the ongoing 2023 WGA writers’ strike and subsequent SAG-AFTRA strike. It is unclear when season 2 will begin production and when the series will premiere on the streaming platform. Fans may have to wait a little longer to continue their journey through Dutton’s family drama. Meanwhile, you can immerse yourself in the world of the Duttons by watching all five seasons of Yellowstone and one season of 1883. Have fun watching!
