Where Are They Now?

Below you’ll find brief summaries of what the cast (and producers) of M*A*S*H have been up to since they either left the series or it came to an end in 1983. Although M*A*S*H may be their main claim to fame, most of the cast continued acting after the series ended. Sadly, several members of the M*A*S*H family have passed away in the decades since the show went off the air.

There have been two televised M*A*S*H retrospectives. The entire cast reunited in 1991 for “Memories of M*A*S*H” on CBS. In 2002, the surviving cast members came together for the “M*A*S*H 30th Anniversary Reunion Special” on FOX.

In May 2015, interviews with most of the surviving cast as well as producers and writers were featured in “MeTV Remembers the M*A*S*H Finale,” a special presentation of “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen” that has since been repeated several times. Also, Loretta Swit, Gary Burghoff, Jamie Farr, Mike Farrell, and William Christopher were interviewed by Toledo TV station WTVG/13abc in January 2016 for a half-hour special titled “M*A*S*H Memories & Magic.”

Note: Most of the images on this page are from the “30th Anniversary Reunion Special” broadcast in 2002. The images for Larry Linville and McLean Stevenson are from “Memories of M*A*S*H,” which aired in 1991.

    1. MASH is the best show ever. I think it has the most recognizable musical score. This show showed all aspects of human emotions, from comedy to drama to the death of a beloved character (Henry Blake). I don’t think there is or was another TV show that can replicate these emotions.

      Jim

      1. I loved the show grew up on it. I preferred the comedy aka the early years. My only issues as a former military man was the long hair and moustache which woukd never happen in the military ever. I also dont think a monopoly attitude of antiwar would exist. In regards to this point yes they would express wanting war to end but it would be a pervasive as its expressed in the show. In this regard Hollywood’s antiwar sentiments win out. Some actors grew others never did Loretta Swit was terrible in 1972 as she was in 1983. Her character of endless mistreatment of juniors got old real old. In my opinion three actors were the best Alda, Stevenson and Morgan. They could pull off the whole range of emotions.

      2. I think mash was the best show and i have the completset there is not another show that could beat mash i whis they would try to have more army or merains show make people wake up to what the armforce is realyabout

    2. I totally agree,I still catch reruns most everyday.I would rather see them again than anything else onT.V. No other show will ever come close!!

      1. These are my thoughts also.They never grow old,and the humour is just as sharp today.They feel like friends.A most wonderful show.

      2. I can’t agree more. I watched them through my entire Navy career and loved to find similarities between MASH and my real life. Given today’s fare of TV shows, Mash wins hands down. Keep the reruns coming, I can always use a life lesson or a laugh.

    3. I love mash. it takes me there.also I speak Korean and cook their favorite dishes also please be patient with me. im totally handicapped.so happy new to you and your friends and family.

      1. we just love the rerun of mash (channel true entertainment) we watch every morning and evening 2 shows daily and sunday evenings 4shows although hawkeye can be a pain in the derriere!!!!!

      2. I was delighted to find that on the True Entertainment Channel in the UK they are running repeats of MASH. It first came on tv in the UK when I was 15, and I used to love watching with my Dad. But I had forgotten just how very funny and witty it was. I really look forward to the weekday evening 7 o’clock shows. For me it has to be one of the funniest, if not the funniest programme ever.

      3. Mash was the best show on tv iwish there should be more shows contain more show of the diffrent milatoryshows that ate kids cpuld learn from and know just how are brave men and women go threw fighting for ate country god blessare people thankyou.

    4. I loved them all. but I was very fond of harry morgan. when he passed I cried.such a good actor,also I watch him dragnet.also major Margret houlihan radar and kilger

    5. It is amazing to watch MASH on “True”. It is wonderful to re-engage with the characters who gave us so much pleasure in the 70s when our boys were growing up. There has never been a show to equal MASH. The writing, direction, acting is second to none. I will watch it as long as I am alive; it is the only show on TV that both my husband and I can watch together, and laugh and laugh as we commiserate with the wonderful actors who bring such humanity and love to their parts. So sad that some of the actors passed away but unfortunately, inevitable. Long live MASH where their legacy is immortal and wil live forever. Thank you so much to all who were involved in this wonderful series.

  1. i’d been a fan of the show since i was a kid,where can i watch all the episodes,they’re not available on hulu.com or crackle.com yet.

      1. In San Antonio, TX we can watch MASH on MI TV Monday through Friday and on Sunday. In Tehran, Iran about 40 years ago when I was teaching English with Language House International, my wife and I watched it on AFRTS TV and on the Iranian international channel. It is still a favorite in reruns.

    1. you might try swap meets and thrift stores i found a mash trivia game at a yard sale about 5 years ago for 2.00 dollars, good luck in your search, dan.

  2. i love to look up my favorite shows and see where they are now. i even loved the show mash.it was a great show and they need to come out with a reunion of the show. from a big fan of mash.

    1. Yes, I love M*A*S*H. See rerun episodes on Me Tv. 7 pm M-F

      There is a 30th reunion but nothing since.. Already character for col. Potter (Henry Morgan) has passed and Alan Arbus (Sidney Freedman) it would be wonderful to see those that are left to gather again. It’s over 40 years now.

  3. I have always enjoyed Mash and I still do.One of the episodes were a cast member winds up preforming surgery on another cast member for a compartment hemerage put me on the spot when a patient in a locoal hospitol in Dearborn Michigan suffered from the same illness.I also delt with a nurse that Lorretta Switt protrayed.I loved the show then and even more now.

  4. I’ve been watching mash since i can remember. I have all the seasons and a little merchandise, friends call me obsessed. I don’t care, i love the show, the cast, everything about it! The cast should be proud, there will never be a better show, even if they remade Mash it wouldn’t be the same without the original cast.

  5. The thing I loved about the show, was it showed that they could laugh while at war. It just showed that war was not the answer and they were there just too do a job. But also showing that they should not be there at all as peace was the obvious solution and not killing each other. Great show and I wish all take notice on what the message was.

  6. All good things come to an end (no matter what it is). M A S H It took the horror of war and turned it into a beautiful timed comedy segment
    of laughs and memoribilia (for those who remember the FORGOTTON WAR). For some of us the comedy was remembered as we may have
    fumbled through life. I praise the writers and actors for an unforgetable WELL DONE!!!

  7. I’ll never forget M*A*S*H. I still watch it all the time, on History Television. I still laugh just as hard. Amazing cast, wonderful messages. I remember watching as a little kid, with my dad, every week, and both of us getting misty, when Hawkeye flew over the big “goodbye” sign, that BJ left for him. As we realized it was the end of a very special show. Thankyou all, for such a great series.

  8. My favorite television program. It has generational appeal, as it is also a favorite of my adult son and my teenage grandson. It was the right blend of comedy and drama, and the cast was just inspired. I am glad to see that so many members of the cast are still with us and having successful careers “after MASH.”

  9. Iam 23 i got hooked to m.a.s.h when i was 14 that year i got deesher all got a mentell dessebillte and some more things it hellp me so much so much that i can manig i wouldet be here iam carrentlly on my 3 set of DVD’s of sirres thank evry one involved in m.a.s.h of what thay done and acheved u hellp me throw the tufthtime Thank you All so much

  10. Sad to learn Harry Morgan died last month. R.I.P

    I have loved this program since I was about 7

    I was 1 years old when the program ended and it is still on tv

    In my opinion it is the best show ever

    1. The only other show I liked as much as MASH was Northern Exposure. I wish they also had it in reruns as they do MASH.

  11. BEYOND A DOUBT, AN ABSOLUTELY PHENOMINAL SHOW WITH A superb cast.To be honest I wouldn’t
    have minded seeing Lorretta Switt Reprise Sally Kellermans shower scene from the movie version.I think Margarett Houlihan was hot weather played by Switt or by Kellermann

    1. I agree with you about Loretta. She was wonderful in the part. I’m replying to your comment at this late date to inform you that the prototype for Margaret Houlihan was my mother’s younger sister, Margaret Cudd, as an Army captain the head nurse in a Mash unit in Korea. She was later discovered to have breast cancer while she was the director of nurses’ training at Gaston Memorial Hospital in Gastonia, N.C. and after being let go likely because she would not let the head of the hospital have a key to the narcotics locker she continually traveled to Bethesda in MD for chemotherapy in its initial stages, which was extremely toxic then, but because the cancer had metasticized throughout her body she finally succumbed after about 15 years of that. While she was in Korea I as a high school kid drove her ’52 Pontiac Chieftan.

  12. As a completist who watches the whole 11 Season Run at least once a year, I’d sure love to have AfterMASH on DVD (along with bonus feature, the unsold W*A*L*T*E*R pilot).

  13. There are not enough superlatives to express how excellent MASH was as still is. What is tell tale about how well done the show is, is that its not dated….at all. It is as funny, as moving and as thought provoking now as it was when it began….perhaps even more so. For me M*A*S*H is tied for the best show ever with West Wing….. another show of hope with a positive spirit.

  14. No matter how young or old MASH will be a part of us all forever you can watch over and over again its been a pleasure to watch

    1. Greatness never dies,this is the tops as far as i am concerned,i am 63 from Leeds in England.and i had tears in my eyes,as each one of them left,this show will never be beaten.
      We can revisit at the touch of a button,even though they grow old,they stay the same.
      Thanks for a million laughs.

  15. I love this tv show. I watched it with my dad and now that I have kids, we watch it every night on tvland. This was one of the best shows on tv. R.I.P. McLean Stevenson, Larry Linville and Harry Morgan, you will never be forgotten.

  16. I watched every episode of M*A*S*H when it first come to T.V. and I watch it now in reruns, my youngest son has the complete series on D.V.D. and we have watched each disc had a M*A*S*H marathon, and will stop and watch every show when it’s on T.V. we were both sadden when “Colonel Potter” Harry Morgan passed and also when “Frank Burns” Larry Linville left us both were out standing actors I wish T.V would go back to this style of shows, my son and I both miss the show a lot, and all the smiles it brought

  17. Have watched MASH since it started, I never tire of it, in fact watching it now on Comedy Central, Even got the wife converted.(Its took years)
    Fab story lines, brilliant actors, never fails to make me laugh and brings an odd tear. Not much to compare it with these days. Sorry to hear Harry M passed away loved his little ditties as “Potter”

  18. I have watched MASH for the last 31 years. I have watched episodes over and over again and still find that it has been the best series ever produced.
    All characters were suited to the the roles they had to play. after comming on this site I have learnt that there was a series called after MASH which I am yet to see. I am really sorry to hear thosed characters who have passed away. This series will stay very close to all who Love MASH. Well done guys……….
    God Bless.

  19. Truly the finest TV show ever made. I still watch the reruns every night. I read the book, then saw the movie. When the TV show first aired, I wasn’t impressed since it was so different. Sure didn’t take me long to fall deeply in love with it!!

    Why don’t they make great TV shows anymore?

  20. The best show ever made these people were like therapy for me if I was having a bad day it is like having some good friends come over to cheer you up. The clever word play is hysterical. I am a M*A*S*H devotee.

  21. I’ve been waiting for some time to comment about MASH……………..I am 81 yrs. old, a widow of almost fifteen years, my hubby, an Air Force veteran died in less than five months with this terrible cancer problem, of which the world is a victim for years now and after having six kids, their great spouses, 13 grandkids, three who are married, a granddaughter who still serves in the military, and five great grandkids, thus don’t see them too much as most have moved across our wonderful USA, two of which have served in the military, one for 22 yrs and lives the furthest from our home here in a small town in Wisconsin. and TV these days are mostly reruns, or disgusting sex shows, violence, monsters, etc., so I watch the “old” wonderful shows of yesterday. I guess I didn’t realize how many of the shows there were, but they are my entertainment of the last few years especially, as although I still volunteer in a few things, the energy level and recent health problems slowed me down. Many compliments to all involved in the show, it is my entertainment almost every day, God Bless you, Everyone, you will never know how much it has meant to my life style, so I am happy to compliment those who keep going for a long time, whether repeats or not…………God Bless All of You, and God Bless America.’

    1. I just finished watching the last show….I can’t believe how long it has been….it brought tears to my eyes again. It was the best tv show EVER! Cheers to everyone that made it possible and good entertainment!
