Chips: Season 5

Original Broadcast Date: October 4, 1981

Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox star in this high-speed series as California Highway Patrol officers Frank “Ponch” Poncharello and Jonathan “Jon” Baker, friends and partners who ride the Los Angeles freeways on their choppers chasing down criminals and, more often than not, sharing a few good-natured laughs.

This season marks Wilcox’s last in the starring role of Jon—but there are still plenty of crimes to solve and adventures to be had! Like when a motorcycle star gets himself arrested before he can perform at a benefits show, so Jon decides to perform the stunts himself, or when Ponch moonlights as a technical advisor on an action-adventure film, but it isn’t long before the real action soon heats up.

This season’s all-star guest star roster includes Ed Harris, Amy Madigan, Michael Dorn, Jayne Kennedy, Anne Francis, Danny Bonaduce and more!

Genre: Action/AdventureDrama
