'Dallas' Renewed For Third Season, Despite Larry Hagman's Death

TNT has picked up Dallas for a third season, ordering 15 episodes of the show that it hopes to premiere in early 2014. It was unclear whether the network would continue with the rebooted series following the death of Larry Hagman (J.R Ewing) though an average of 3.8 million for its second season was enough to get the green-light, from USA Today.

"Dallas has built a passionately loyal following with its expertly woven story lines, clever twists and turns and numerous outstanding performances by a cast that spans generations," TNT program chief Michael Wright said in a statement announcing the third season, "Although we said goodbye to Larry Hagman and his iconic character, J.R. Ewing, this year, Dallas has many more stories to tell and the Ewing clan will continue to honor J.R.'s memory by keeping its audience surprised and delighted."

Hagman, whose creation J.R is one of the most enduring characters in U.S. television history, died during the filming of the second season. The show acknowledged the character's passing with a memorial during the season. The rebooted shows features stars from the original series, including Patrick Duffy as J.R's brother Bobby and Linda Gray as his ex-wife Sue Ellen. New additions to the cast include Josh Henderson, former Desperate Housewives actor Jesse Metcalfe and Jordana Brewster.

Has Larry Hagman's Death Put An End To Dallas Reboot?


Larry Hagman Linda Gray Patrick Duffy Jesse Metcalfe Josh Henderson

Larry Hagman and his co-stars drew nearly 7 million viewers for TNT's Dallas reboot this summer. The cable series - in which Hagman once again played Texas oilman J.R. Ewing - was scheduled to return for a second season on January 28, 2013, though questions have been raised about the future of the show following the actor's death aged 81 on Friday (November 23, 2012).

A source close to Dallas who insisted on anonymity told the Associated Press that Hagman's death makes things difficult for the show to continue. It is known that Hagman had completed filming on several episodes before his death, though season two is yet to be wrapped up, giving producers a headache. The sources acknowledged that show bosses have yet to establish how they would address J.R's departure from the show, which widely revolved around Ewing's presence. The show's writers have already begun work to try give the legendary character a fitting send-off.

Following its June debut, Dallas scored the No.1 scripted series premiere on cable television in 2012. As well as original stars Hagman, Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy, the reboot welcomed Desperate Housewives star Jesse Metcalfe as Christopher Ewing and Josh Henderson as John Ross Ewing III.

A statement from the UK broadcaster Channel 5 revealed “Dallas is midway in production on season two and this sad news will be incorporated into the storyline.” Season two is currently scheduled to premiere in the USA on January 28, 2013, on the TNT network.

'Dallas' star Linda Gray arrives at the Kate Somerville skin health spa in Hollywood looking cheerful. A man looks to be about to speak to her about something but steps aside to allow photographers to take pictures of the actress who is dressed in a simple black dress.

Gray, 71, recently expressed some disappointment at her limited screen time in the re-launched soap opera 'Dallas'. 'I want to be in every episode', she complained in an interview for fansite UltimateDallas.com. 'I like the way that people notice Sue Ellen wasn't in there, that was cool and I want them to go and rattle cages.'

Dallas: The Complete First Four Seasons Review


Grim
If you really have the time and inclination to go back and watch 77 episodes of Dallas, well God love ya, but is there really nothing better you could be doing with your time? True, in J.R. Ewing, Larry Hagman created one of television's most durable and memorable bad guys, always keeping that sinister smile on his face as stuffed himself into his three-piece suit, donned his Stetson, and headed off for another lunch of drinks and scheming at the Oil Baron's Club. TV will probably never come up with another character who people loved to hate with such ardor.

And true, in Dallas's early seasons J.R. is in full flower, doing enough shady dealing and backstabbing to keep his large family in a constant case of chaos and to keep the entire oil industry unstable. His lovely wife, the former beauty queen Sue Ellen (Linda Gray), deals with him by drinking and by matching his affairs tit for tat.
