Series Info

Cloak-and-dagger thrillers are subtly skewered in this cult adventure series centering on unflappable bowler-hatted British counterspy John Steed, whose upper lip may be stiff but whose tongue is planted firmly in his cheek. The series first aired in Britain in 1961 and debuted in the U.S. March 28, 1966, on ABC. In all, 122 episodes were filmed (67 of them in black and white).
