Publish date:

(Indian Land, SC) Classic Western and fan-favorite series The Virginian returns to INSP on January 1. Doug Butts, senior vice president of Programming, made the announcement.

“This series is wildly popular with the INSP audience,” said Butts. “For more than a year, one of the questions most asked by our loyal viewers has been: ‘When is The Virginian coming back to your lineup?’ We are thrilled to give fans the shows they love!”

Butts continued, “The series was groundbreaking because it was the only 90-minute Western on television. This allowed writers and actors to give viewers a well-developed story arc, which is why it continues to hold an audience today. Not surprising, The Virginian is one of our highest rated programs. What a great way to kick off 2019!”

Starting on January 1 at 12:00PM ET, INSP will air an eight-hour marathon of The Virginian with episodes that feature legendary actors Robert Duvall, Robert Redford, Harrison Ford and David Carradine. Thereafter the series will be featured in the network’s “Weekday Western” and “Saddle Up Weekend” programming blocks. To view the weekly INSP schedule, click on this link.
