The following is an episode list for the 1980s undercover cop television series Miami Vice. In the United States, the show was aired on NBC. The first episode of the series premiered on September 16, 1984 with the series concluding on May 21, 1989 after five seasons. Though the series concluded on May 21, 1989, NBC aired three more episodes after the series finale, and USA Network aired a fourth post-series finale episode. Thus concluding the series on January 25, 1990. There are a total of 111 episodes, spanning five years (19841989) of the show's run. The individual seasons are available on DVD in Regions 1, 2, and 4.

Miami Vice follows the life of two undercover Vice Cops, Crockett and Tubbs, and their partners in Miami, Florida. Crockett is a jaded cop who has been living on a boat with a pet alligator. Tubbs is a former NYPD police officer who left New York for Miami to find his brother's killer. The series also deals with Lt. Martin Castillo, Gina Calabrese, Trudy Joplin, Stan Switek, and Larry Zito.
