After McKinsey left the show in late 1981, it was renamed TEXAS: THE NEXT GENERATION.
Once Gail Kobe took over and, in 1982, Pamela Long took over as head writer, the show really took off. Unfortunately the ratings weren't good enough (by 1980 standards) and the show aired its final episode on December 31, 1982. Many of the creative folks behind the show as well as several cast members moved over to GUIDING LIGHT and began another wonderful period in GL's history.
Below are scenes from the final crossover episode of ANOTHER WORLD as well as the opening from the first episode of TEXAS.
