Tour of Duty was an US television series that followed a platoon of US soldiers through their yearlong deployment (or "tour of duty") to Vietnam during the height of the American involvement in the war. The series premiered in the US on CBS in September of 1987, at the height of the popularity of feature films being released about the war, such as Platoon, Hamburger Hill, and Full Metal Jacket. The show aired for three seasons from 1987 to 1990 and was one of the very first to depict the conflict in a weekly drama. While the first two seasons followed the men of Bravo Company as they served in a regular Army unit where they carried standard American weapons, Season 3 had the men join the Special Operations Group, where they went on missions carrying more non-descript weaponry.

The following lists the seasons of the series Tour of Duty:
