Bonanza: Under Attack is a 1995 TV-movie sequel to the 1959-1973 television series Bonanza and television films Bonanza: The Next Generation (1988) and Bonanza: The Return (1993). The movie was directed by Mark Tinker and features noted character actors Ben Johnson, Jack Elam, Dennis Farina, and Richard Roundtree, as well as Leonard Nimoy.

None of the characters from the original series appears since the entire cast, with the exception of Pernell Roberts, was dead. The cast does include Michael Landon, Jr. and Dirk Blocker, sons of the actors who originally starred as Little Joe and Hoss Cartwright.

Nimoy and Farina portray real-life figures, outlaw Frank James (brother of Jesse James) and Pinkertons detective Charlie Siringo.
