Season 2



Season Three of Land of the Lost aired on NBC from September 11th, 1976 to December 4th, 1976, spanning a total of thirteen episodes. Season three saw a change in the cast line-up of the series. Spencer Milligan, who played Rick Marshall, left the series and was replaced with the character's brother Jack Marshall, played by Ron Harper. Actor Philip Paley, known for playing the role of the Paku Cha-Ka, became a credited cast member in season three and was seen in nearly episode. Walker Edmiston, who played the stoic Altrusian Enik was never a credited cast member, but was a stable presence throughout all three seasons of the show.

Given the change in cast, series creators Sid and Marty Krofft could no longer use the original opening credit montage or its memorable theme song. As such, a new song was composed and the opening sequence was filled with stock scenes from previous episodes.

Will and Holly Marshall
As the Earth beneath them trembled.
