[show]John McIntire ("Lt. Dan Muldoon") left the series midway through the first season because, reportedly, he was tired of the New York location filming grind and wanted to return to his home in California. An earlier trivia statement claimed that McIntire couldn't stand working with series star James Franciscus. However, McIntire worked with Franciscus on at least two episodes of Longstreet, including the 1971 television pilot.
