Mission: Impossible

The Original Television Series

Season 2

Cast picture

Barney, Willy
Jim, Cinnamon

Season 2, 1967/68, 25 episodes
Producer Joseph Gantman
Regular Team: Jim, Rollin, Cinnamon, Barney, Willy

The opening credits for the second season were:

Peter Graves as Jim Phelps Martin Landau as Rollin Hand Barbara Bain as Cinnamon Carter Greg Morris as Barney Peter Lupus as Willy

Steve Hill, who played Impossible Missions Force leader Dan Briggs in the first season, had proved increasingly difficult to work with, and it was decided to replace him. Peter Graves joined the cast as Jim Phelps, and took over the job of receiving the self-destroying messages and assembling the team from the black folder. Otherwise, the cast remained the same as before. Desilu had now got Martin Landau under contract, although only for one season, and Rollin became “officially” a regular character.

Desilu Studios, who made Mission: Impossible and another little-known series, Star Trek, were bought by their next door neighbour, Paramount Pictures, and became Paramount Television in July 1967. The Desilu logo still appeared on screen during most of season two, but with a line of text underneath indicating that the show was the copyright of Paramount Pictures. The logo disappeared towards the end of the season, being replaced by the Paramount Television logo itself.

Episodes were often not broadcast in the same order that they were produced, especially at the begining of a season. I have therefore given three numbers in this table.
The episode number represents the production order over the entire series, the season number represents the episode production order within the season, and TX Order represents the original transmission order.
For example, The Survivors was the 28th episode made, the first season two episode made, but the third shown.
Desilu's convention was to give double episodes, such as The Slave, just one episode number.
