Season Two (1966-1967)

Season Overview

This was the lengthiest of all three seasons – sometimes advertised as having two different parts (the initial DVD release). After the huge success of the first season, many Hollywood names lined up to appear on the show this this season featured many new guest star villains. We get two three-parter storylines around the time of the one year anniversary. Julie Newmar‘s Catwoman is featured a lot during this season – we do not get to see her for the final season. John Austin notably fills in as the Riddler. William Dozier‘s next project was The Green Hornet so naturally a crossover in episodes 85 and 86 took place to promote his new venture. It’s been cited that the Liberace episodes were the highest rated episodes of the entire series. Mr Freeze makes two appearances, its final for the whole series in the last storyline of the season.
