Changes Edit

  • MiamiVice S2 MCE

    Miami Vice season 2 2016 re-release by Mill Creek Entertainment

    The show's storylines expand out to focus on the team's supporting characters, such as Gina in "Bought and Paid For" and Trudy in "The Dutch Oven". The show's use of colorful cameos becomes prevalent.
  • Crockett's boat changes from a Chris Craft Stinger 390x to a Wellcraft SCARAB 38' KV.
  • Crockett's hair grows longer in the back, longer than it was in the season 1.
  • Zito grows a beard, although it appears and disappears several times during the season, indicating the studio switched the running order of the episodes.
  • Jan Hammer's music credit is moved to after the opening credits instead of the closing credits from now on (until he leaves the show at the end of season 4). Many new Hammer cues appear, such as "Colombia" and "Payback".
  • Crockett's boat, the St. Vitus Dance, changes from an Endeavour 40 to an Endeavour 42 sailboat (although the Endeavour 40 is still seen in some episodes).

NotesEdit

  • As with the show's pilot, the second season premiere "The Prodigal Son" was a two-hour episode, airing at 9pm on Friday, September 27, 1985 and was repeated on a Sunday night, March 23, 1986.
  • Miami Vice's time slot remained at 10:00pm on Fridays until the summer reruns, when it was moved to 9:00pm in preparation for the season 3.
  • All new episodes were broadcast with stereo sound beginning with this season, although some first-season repeats aired during the previous summer had been broadcast in stereo.
  • More musical guest stars appear in this season than any other, both as actors and/or performers, including Phil Collins, Cleavant Derricks, El DeBarge, Ted Nugent, The Power Station, Gene Simmons, Suicidal Tendencies, Miles Davis and Frank Zappa.
  • Miami Vice's year end rating was #9, the highest for the series.
