J.R. Ewing Funeral To Air During ‘Dallas’ Season Two

The reboot of Dallas will return to screens at the beginning of 2013, and in light of the death of the original show's star Larry Hagman, his character from the show - J.R. Ewing - will be given a fond farewell and funeral service during the upcoming second season.

Dallas, in its second incarnation, begins its second season on TNT on January 28, with the new series giving viewers a chance to see the late Hagman’s final performances of his most famous character. Hagman lost his long battle with cancer at age 81 at the end of November, but he did manage to film six episodes for the new series, which has 15 episodes planned in total.

Of course, with Hagman's untimely death, he was unable to see out the rest of the season's filming and as such the show's writers have decided to see off Hagman, and the larger than life Ewing, in fitting style with a full funeral ceremony taking place on the show mid-season. According to TVLine, J.R.’s funeral will hit screens on March 11, which wil be the eighth episode of the season. The website also claims that the episode will also reportedly feature a number Dallas stars, from both past and present, including actors who have not yet appeared in the revamped series.
