Return to Lonesome Dove is the 1993 sequel to the popular 1989 TV miniseries, Lonesome Dove. After burying his friend Augustus McCrae (David Arquette) in Lonesome Dove, Texas, Captain Woodrow F. Call (Jon Voight) enlists two men, Gideon Walker (William Petersen) and Isom Pickett (Louis Gossett Jr.), to help him drive a herd of wild horses back to his ranch in Montana. Walker is a former Texas Ranger and Pickett is an expert horse wrangler. As the men head off to Clara Allen's (Barbara Hershey) ranch, where they plan to buy more horses, Call's unacknowledged son Newt Dobbs (Rick Schroder) is arrested for killing a man in a bar fight back in Montana. Newt is saved by Gregor Dunnigan (Oliver Reed), the owner of a nearby ranch called Kenilworth. Indebted to Dunnigan, Newt begins working for him, and Dunnigan starts grooming him to take over his large estate upon his death. While there, Newt takes up a friendship with Dunnigan's much younger wife (Reese Witherspoon). When Call finally reaches Montana, he is upset to see Newt working for Dunnigan, especially since Dunnigan is trying to drive all the neighboring ranches out of business. Return to Lonesome Dove was written by James Wilder and based on the characters created by James McMurtry in his novel, Lonesome Dove.
