Regular Team: Jim, Barney, Casey, Willy

The opening credits for season 6 were:

Peter Graves as Jim Greg Morris as Barney Lynda Day George as Casey Peter Lupus as Willy

Season six saw the final significant cast changes that Mission: Impossible was to make. Leonard Nimoy had become increasing dissatisfied with the parts he was being given in season five, and he left the show and was not replaced. Lesley Warren also left, and was replaced by Lynda Day George, who played disguise expert Casey (we never find out her other name, although when she appears in the 1980s series episode Reprisal she is called Lisa Casey). With Peter Lupus's unexpected popularity, Sam Elliott's services weren't required either, although he does appear as Doug in the first show. Greg Morris is now a "co-star".

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, Encore was the 125th episode made, the first season six episode made, but the second shown.
