Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of episodes for the Dragnet television series that ran for three and 1/2 seasons, from January 12, 1967 to April 16, 1970. To differentiate it from the earlier Dragnet series, the year in which each season ended was made part of the on-screen title; i.e., the series started as Dragnet 1967 and ended as Dragnet 1970.

The entire series aired Thursdays at 9:30-10:00 pm (EST) and was directed by Jack Webb.

All four seasons of this series have been released on DVD; Season 1 ("Dragnet 1967") by Universal Studios Home Entertainment, and seasons 2 ("1968"), 3 ("1969") and 4 ("1970") by Shout! Factory.[1]

Sgt. Joe Friday is called back from vacation to work with his partner, Officer Bill Gannon, on a missing persons case. Two amateur female models and a young war widow have vanished, having been last seen with one J. Johnson. In the course of tracking down Johnson and the young ladies, the detectives wind up with two different descriptions of the suspect, one of which closely resembles a dead body found in a vacant lot. But the dead man, later identified as Charles LeBorg of France, proves not to be J. Johnson, when a third young model disappears.[2]
