Bronco (TV Series 1958–1962) Poster



Premiered on ABC on 23 September 1958. Its 68th and final episode aired on 30 April 1962.
After Clint Walker temporarily quit the series Cheyenne (1955) over a contract dispute, the producers cast Ty Hardin as Bronco Layne to replace him. The Cheyenne name was kept in the title, however, when Walker returned, Bronco (1958) became its own series.
This series was part of "The Cheyenne Show", and rotated each week with both Cheyenne (1955) and Sugarfoot (1957).
The Cheyenne (1955) episode "Duel at Judas Basin" was the only one to feature Hardin, Walker, and Will Hutchins all in the same episode.
Bronco is Spanish for "rough."
Producers had Ty Hardin change his last name from Hungerford to Hardin in reference to the famous gunslinger John Wesley Hardin.
