The legend of the West is back as Jack Kelly returns for the fifth and final season of Maverick. Alternating with reruns featuring James Garner as brother Bret, Season Five's original episodes follow Bart Maverick (Kelly) as he deals himself the winning hand against crooked senators, four-flushing bankers, glamorous grifters, wish-granting leprechauns, Bonanza-spoofing ranchers and more in 13 classic adventures guest-starring cult favorites Marie Windsor, Sig Ruman, Reginald Owen, Kathleen Crowley and Jim Backus.
And while Maverick: The Complete Fifth Season marks the end of the run, the Maverick brothers would return, with Garner playing Bret in The New Maverick TV movie (1978) and the Bret Maverick series (1981-82), both guest-starring Kelly as Bart. Which only proves what their old Pappy might say: "You can't keep a good cardsharp and con artist down."
