Taylor Sheridan's universe appears to have three spinoffs so far. The Duttons set out across the Great Plains in search of a place to settle in 1883, which is available for streaming on Paramount+. The year 1932 is most likely the next in chronological order, as it follows the Duttons in the next generation. The final spinoff will be called 6666, after the 6666 Ranch.

The release date for 1923 is unknown, but the series is expected to premiere in December, according to TVLine.

No details about who Ford and Mirren will play have been revealed, but it's assumed they'll both be Duttons, though it's unclear whether they'll be a married couple or have another relationship altogether.
