Bill Longley (Rory Calhoun), a Civil War Veteran whose reputation of being the fastest gun in the west preceded him, roamed across Texas from town to town, not looking for trouble, but trouble always seemed to find him.

As well as being a fast gun, Bill was a loyal and devoted friend, and a mortal enemy to those who broke the law or harassed the people who he felt close to.

The short-lived series lasted for two seasons from September 1958 to September 1960 on the CBS network. ABC aired reruns of The Texan in its weekday daytime lineup from October 1960 to March 1962 and its Saturday morning lineup from February to May 1962.
