Shane was a TV-series of 1 season that ran from september 10, 1966 to december 31, 1966.

Based on the 1949 novel by Jack Schaefer, which was translated into over thirty languages and inspired the award-winning 1953 film, the series expands upon the well-known story yet also honors the spirit of the source material. (Timeless Media Group)


After the death of her husband, Marian Starett takes on the arduous task of both raising a son, Joey, and protecting her farm from ruthless land baron Ryker. Nomadic gunfighter Shane decides to hire on with Marian as a cowhand, and, at the same time, serve as a father figure for little Joey. - Source:
