Return to Lonesome Dove is a Western miniseries that aired on the American television network CBS in the early 1990s. The show was a sequel to the original Lonesome Dove miniseries and moves ahead in time to the trials of a retired Texas Ranger as he drives Mustangs across the Plains of the West. Return to Lonesome Dove takes place shortly after the events of the original miniseries. Returning to Lonesome Dove to bury his friend Gus McCrae, who died after their original trek from Texas, retired Captain Woodrow F. Call, portrayed by Jon Voight, is ready to return to his ranch in Montana. However, he doesn't want the journey to be without profit, so he decides to drive a herd of wild horses between the Lonestar State and his new home. However, Call runs into problems from the minute the decision is made. One of those problems is Newt Dobbs, played by Rick Schroder, who murders two men in a bar fight and ends up in the custody of Gregor Dunnigan, played by Oliver Reed. Another problem is Dunnigan himself, who tries to drive the other Montana ranchers off their lands. In addition to this, Call encounters a criminal named Cherokee Jack and nearly loses his life to him before he's captured. Return to Lonesome Dove stars Jon Voight, Rick Schroder, Barbara Hershey, Louis Gossett Jr., Oliver Reed, and Reese Witherspoon. It was produced by Dyson Lovell, distributed by Artisan Home Entertainment, and directed by Mike Robe. Unlike the original miniseries, which was based on the Lonesome Dove novels by Larry McMurtry, the sequel was written by John Wilder. The series aired on CBS for three nights starting on November 14, 1993. Return to Lonesome Dove is available in the United States on DVD.
