TV Fact #293 – August 12th, 2015:

George Maharis walked off his show “Route 66” (1960-1964) during the third season after playing the character Buz Murdock for three years. It was supposedly because of a bout with hepatitis, although it has been alleged that he was dissatisfied with his contract and wanted to work in film and, as such, Maharis had ongoing clashes with the show’s producers. Maharis was replaced by actor Glenn Corbett who came on as the character Linc Case, but audiences did not like the change and the show was canceled as a result.
