Ex-gunfighter Johnny Ringo is now the sheriff of a small Western town, and attempts to keep the peace with the aid of his deputy, Cully, and his girl, Laura Thomas.
Karen Sharpe's character, Laura Thomas, was written out of the series in mid-season after Sharpe repeatedly clashed with series producer Aaron Spelling concerning the way the lead female character was written. Sharpe thought Laura's character should be written as an adventurous tomboy, while Spelling wanted the role to be played as demure, lady-like eye candy.
In 1966, Four Star Productions syndicated four of its half-hour Western series under the title of "The Westerners." They were "The Black Saddle," "Johnny Ringo," "Law of the Plainsman," and "The Westerner." The series had a new opening credits sequence featuring Michael Ansara, Peter Breck, Don Durant, and Brian Keith. Keenan Wynn appeared in new opening and closing host segments. The original closing credits were retained.
