Right now, there is no word as to what characters will play. The only information known at the moment is a statement passed along by the outlet, saying “the next story will introduce a new generation of the Dutton family and explore the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition, and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.”

The series is expected to debut in December, exclusively on Paramont+, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Early last month, The Hollywood Reporter announced that “The Fugitive” star has been cast as the lead in “Shrinking,” a new comedy series on Apple TV+. The project, which also stars Jason Segel, was created by “Ted Lasso” producers Bill Lawrence, Brett Goldstein, and Segel.

The series focuses on Segel, who plays a grieving therapist who starts to “break the rules and tell his clients exactly what he thinks.” Meanwhile, Ford will be playing Dr. Phil Rhodes, who is described as a “blue-collar shrink.” Rhodes has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, which “forces him out of his comfort zone.”

Although Ford is known for his prolific film career, this will actually be Ford’s first series regular role in a TV series.

In 1977, Ford starred in the first “Star Wars” movie, “A New Hope.” After starring as Han Solo in the original film trilogy, he later reprised his role as the iconic smuggler in 2015’s “The Force Awakens,” the first film in the “Star Wars” sequel trilogy. Although he met his demise at the hands of his son, Kylo Ren/Ben Solo (Adam Driver), Ford returned to the franchise once again in 2019 for “The Rise of Skywalker,” which wrapped up the nine-episode Skywalker Saga.
