The Earth of 2319 was radically different from that of the 20th Century. There had been a nuclear holocaust that had devastated much of the planet. The remnants of civilization were living in isolated cities, each with its own lifestyle, separated from each other by vast stretches of wasteland and ruins. One of the surviving communities was the City of Domes, where all residents lived entirely for their own pleasure. It would have been idyllic were it not mandated that nobody could live past their 30th birthday.

Logan was one of the city's citizens, a Sandman (elite policeman) who had fled as his 30th birthday approached. Together with a young girl named Jessica, who had helped him escape from the city, and an android (humanlike robot) named Rem, Logan searched for a purported utopia called Sanctuary. Pursuing them was a dedicated Sandman (Francis) who wanted to take them back to the City of Domes to die in the ritual ceremony known as Carousel.

The chase of the fugitives by their pursuer, and their encounters with the diverse and strange remnants of human civilization, both in modern cities and in the wilds between them, provided the subject matter for this series.

It was based on a novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson and a feature-length movie, both also titled Logan’s Run.
