Logan’s Run

1 9 7 7 – 1 9 7 8 (USA)
14 x 60 minute episodes

This science fiction series, based on the book by William F Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, and the 1976 film starring Michael York, was set in the year 2319 on an Earth devastated by atomic holocaust after a nuclear war.

No longer one civilisation, the planet existed only as a series of individual cities, separated by vast stretches of wilderness.

In one such settlement – the City of Domes – all the citizens had a wonderful lifestyle and lived only for fun. There was one major drawback . . . life was terminated at the age of 30.

Logan (Gregory Harrison), a high-ranking police officer – or ‘Sandman’ as they were known – had reached the critical age and was about to undergo the ‘Carousel’ death ceremony when he decided to make a run for it.

He was assisted by Jessica (Heather Menzies), a young rebel girl, and a humorous android, Rem (Donald Moffat), whom they met early on in their travels.

Together they sought a legendary haven known as ‘Sanctuary’, but they were pursued all the way by another Sandman, Logan’s former partner, Francis (Randy Powell), as they braved the outside world and its hostile inhabitants.


The show’s failure forced the Mego toy company to cancel plans for Logan’s Run action figures.
