The series was one of several Warner Bros. detective shows which aired on ABC during this era, but Bourbon Street Beat was not as successful as the others. When the series ended, the character of Rex Randolph moved to 77 Sunset Strip, and the character of Kenny Madison moved to the spin-off Surfside 6, which aired in the Bourbon Street Beat time slot the following season. Andrew Duggan's character, Cal Calhoun, immediately disappeared from the screen upon the show's cancellation.

To make the series setting authentic, ABC bought a half-interest in the New Orleans French Quarter restaurant, the Old Absinthe House, and placed the Randolph and Calhoun office above the eatery, although the series was nonetheless shot on the Warner Bros. studio lot in Los Angeles.

Legacy

Arlene Howell had appeared several times on 1957's western series Maverick and was a former Miss USA; she appears to have retired from the screen after a last appearance as an understandably astonished Sergeant Carter's blind date on Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.. Richard Long went on to play the lead in the western series The Big Valley (1965–69) and the sitcom Nanny and the Professor (1970–71). Van Williams eventually played The Green Hornet (1966–67) opposite Bruce Lee. Andrew Duggan continued to portray an amazing number of character roles in films and television, including two other stints as series lead, taking over Cary Grant's movie role in the short-lived television version of Room for One More (1962), and as the sullen patriarch in Lancer (1968–70), a western in the vein of Bonanza, albeit darker and more complex.
