1993: CBS Says Goodbye to 'Knots Landing'
May 13, 2012  | By Christy Slewinski
 
This day in 1993 marked the final broadcast of Knots Landing. The CBS series - which was built around the lives of four couples living in a southern California cul-de-sac - was presented as a spinoff of the network's popular series, Dallas. The connection between the two shows was Jock and Ellie Ewing's middle son, Gary (Ted Shackelford), a reformed alcoholic who had reunited with and re-married Val (Joan Van Ark) the mother of his child, Lucy (Charlene Tilton, of Dallas).

The show's break-out stars included William Devane, Donna Mills, Kevin Dobson, Nicollette Sheridan, Michelle Phillips, Lisa Hartman and Michelle Lee, who appeared in every one of the show's 344 episodes. Other noteworthy stars who appeared on Knots during the show's 14-season run include Marcia Cross, Halle Berry, Julie Harris, Brian Austin Green, Paul Rudd, Ava Gardner, Douglas Sheehan, Joe Regalbuto, Danielle Brisebois, Red Buttons, Kristy Swanson, Leslie Hope, Peter Reckell, Robin Strasser, Michael York, Kathleen Noone, Bruce Greenwood and Alec Baldwin.

Members of the cast reunited twice after the show's cancellation. First, in 1997 for a two-part mini-series, Knots Landing: Back to the Cul-De-Sac, and for a 2005 special, Knots Landing Reunion: Together Again, during which the cast talked about their memories of the show.
