    Were there ever any reports or rumours in the press that CBS were considering a spinoff of Falcon Crest at any stage? Dallas had one, Dynasty had one and Knots had apparently considered one. Even with three successful soaps on their schedule, CBS were obviously open to adding more considering they tried again with Emerald Point NAS in 1983.

    I don't know about a spinoff but there was talk of a crossover with Dallas, later in the decade. Jock was supposedly to have got Angela pregnant and their offspring was to be centre stage in the merger. Another dramatic twist eh, there you go!

    All the dead characters together in PURGATORY, a Lorimar-Telepictures Production.

    And they all live in the cave under Angela's mansion, taking turns playing the pipe organ.

    Vicky #1 is their queen.

    My idea for a spin off would have been a series based around Julia's time in prison, a sort of Orange Is The New Black type of show. I'd call it The Caged Falcon.

    Vicky went to New York, and she even guest starred on PAPER DOLLS. I think she played an actress?
    But she could have been a lead character (together with Morgan Fairchild) and then it would have been THE Falcon Crest spin-off.

    After losing Falcon Crest, Lance becomes a gigolo in a women-centered brothel run by a ruthless Madam, played by Morgan Fairchild. Watch the ratings (PG-13, R, NC-17) roar.

    Well, Jim Davis' run as Jock was ending due to his cancer at the same time FC began airing.....so I can't imagine what they would be thinking......

    The FC fansite says it was reported that they were planning the crossover for season 8 of Falcon Crest. Angela was to crossover to Dallas & JR to FC. Apparently, Jane Wyman's poor health at the time put paid to the idea. However, this was all reported in the National Enquirer, so you can probably take it with a pinch of salt.

    Falcon Crest was an entity unto itself and was too unique to do a crossover or spinoff.......

    The Capronis, the story starts with the return of Linda's brothers (for the funeral)
    It would be about the town's people (bakery, bookstore etc) and every now and then a Falcon Crest character could guest star because they need a cake or something.
    Sort of a new Rich Man Poor Man.

    or

    The Convent Mysteries
    Starring Abby Dalton as the fabulous super-sleuth

    Well I suppose if any convent was likely to have a murder every week it would be the Tuscany Valley one.

    Yeah! And every week they accuse Julia (once a killer always a killer blablabla) therefore she has to solve the case.

    A sitcom spinoff following on from the end of FC where Chao Li finds a map that proves that his family are the real owners of Falcon Crest. Angela is forced to become the sarcastic butler, Emma the crazy cook and Lance the dumb chauffeur. Garth moves in next door and Julia has a recurring role as a nun. Everyone continually rolls their eyes and winks at the audience who of course laugh like drains. I'd really hate it, but I can imagine it.
