Both the 'Dallas' legacy and TNT's revival of the long-running soap opera suffered an immense blow this past year when legendary actor and original series star Larry Hagman lost his battle with cancer. TNT managed to write the actor's death into a storyline for Havman's wily J.R. Ewing to exit the series, but now we've learned that 'Dallas' will live on regardless. TNT has officially ordered a thi
Last year, 'Dallas' fans were stunned to learn of the relatively sudden, and tragic passing of long-time series star Larry Hagman, famed for playing villainous oil magnate J.R. Ewing. Hagman had completed work on a number of episodes for TNT's revitalized series, entering its second season on January 28, necessitating that the character would pass away as well. But amid the myriad of past stars re
As TV and 'Dallas' fans alike well know, production of the second season of TNT's revival series experienced a tragic loss when long-time series star Larry Hagman lost his battle with cancer. As Hagman had already shot a number of episodes as his oil magnate character J.R. Ewing, TNT decided to move forward with the series by paying respect to Hagman's passing with a funeral for his character, one
One of the many tragic losses of 2012 belonged to legendary 'Dallas' star Larry Hagman, losing his battle with cancer while filming the hotly-anticipated second season of TNT's revival series. While mourning the loss in real life, TNT expressed plans to properly eulogize both Hagman and his iconic character J.R. Ewing on the series itself, writing around the actor's death.

Late last month we had the sad duty of reporting that veteran cultural icon and the actor behind legendary soap 'Dallas' most enduring character J.R.

Hagman's passing also left TNT's revived 'Dallas' series in the lurch in the midst of shooting a second season when the actor died. We knew that TNT would find a way to work the ch
While legions of fans, colleagues, friends and family of 'Dallas' star Larry Hagman mourn the actor's tragic death, TNT's 'Dallas' revival series is nonetheless faced with a difficult question. With production not yet wrapped on the upcoming season, how will Hagman's death affect the series? Will anything about Hagman's current scenes be changed, or will the writers write the death into the scri
We hope you're enjoying TNT's rebooted (continued?) rendition of the classic soap 'Dallas,' because more is on the way! After a successful run of only 4 episodes, it looks like the network has struck oil. Not only does the network have a Texas-sized hit on their hands, but the Ewings will continue to feud as the 'Dallas' reboot heads into a second season! Plus, who's joining them in renewal?
Like you, many of us were rather taken aback to see that TNT would pick up classic soap drama 'Dallas' for a newly revamped series.
