25 Episodes | September 1979 – April 1980
In this second season The Dukes of Hazzard popularity really begins to take off! Tom Wopat and John Schneider return as Luke and Bo, along with a carload of colorfull Hazzard County relations, friends and foes. The stories begin with Uncle Jesse and Boss Hogg tearin’up the back roads in a grudge match and end with Luke and Bo dukin’ it out in a surprise feud of their own. In between, you’ll share hours of full-throttle adventure and laughs, Hazzard style!
The reformed moonshining family is still on probation with the law, yet they continue being a thorn in the side of the shady antagonist Boss Hogg his lackey, Sheriff Coltrane. In this second round of scheme-busting southern fun, Bo and Luke are assumed to have drowned after their car ends up at the bottom of a pond. Unsurprisingly, Hogg plans to blame the duo anyways, so Bo and Luke haunt him with visions of General Lee as a ghost, proving how silly the show can get. The season also introduces a recurring theme of having to protect Hogg from his enemies. Hogg and Jesse get into an argument about who was the best after watching a film of their moonshine-delivery exploits, and the two decide to resolve the debate with a race.
