Reception

Todd Everett of Variety was mostly positive in his review of Lonesome Dove: The Series, praising the script by Stephen Zito and Tom Towler, and the direction by Sidney J. Furie. Chris Willman of Los Angeles Times was more mixed in his review, praising the "luscious Canadian Rocky Mountain scenery", but noting that the syndicated television series shared little in common with its predecessors and lacked "any of the solemn sophistication of the first miniseries".
