- 7 Seasons
Cheyenne is an western themed TV show that was also the first 60 minute drama series with multiple seasons. Clint Walker was the star of the program, playing the cowboy Cheyenne Bodie in a post Civil War era. In the series premiere, the viewers learn that the Indians who raised Cheyenne also murdered his parents. Despite learning this, Bodie still maintains a good relationship with the Indians. Clint Walker later took a hiatus from the show, prompting the creators of the show to replace Bodie with a similar character named Bronco Layne. After Walker's return to the series, Bronco was occasionally still used on the show as Bodie's partner. Throughout the show's run, Bodie drifts between multiple jobs. Some of these jobs include being a sheriff, helping children, transporting prisoners, and herding cattle. While performing these roles, Bodie encounters a slew of villains that are out to get him. Bodie gets into a number of conflicts and gunfights in his quests to help civilians.
