Today TNT have announced that they have renewed Dallas for a 2nd season. Dallas on TNT is a continuation of the original series and the drama is produced by Warner Horizon Television with writer Cynthia Cidre and Michael M. Robin serving as executive producers. Shot on location in the title city, Dallas was developed by Cidre and created by David Jacobs.. Since its return to our screens Dallas has ranked as basic cable's number 1 new series, averaging an impressive 6.9 million viewers. Having only returned on June 13th, Dallas is another summer success for TNT.
“Dallas has been a success for us on every level: pitch-perfect writing, smart directing and buzz-worthy performances by a new generation of stars and their iconic counterparts,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “WithDallas‘ top-flight ratings, robust growth through time-shifted viewing and the extensive online buzz, it’s clear the Ewings of Southfork have once again captured the imagination of viewers.”
Dallas is currently airing on TNT, Wednesday at 9PM (ET/PT) where you can re-join J.R., Bobby and Sue Ellen Ewing in Southfork, with the next generation of Ewings. If you thought the days of ambition and deception were over, think again. The ambition and deception is greater than ever!
The series stars Josh Henderson as John Ross, the son of J.R. and Sue Ellen Ewing; Jesse Metcalfe as Christopher, Bobby’s adopted son; Jordana Brewster as Elena Ramos, John Ross’ girlfriend; Julie Gonzalo as Rebecca Sutter, Christopher’s wife; and Brenda Strong as Bobby’s wife, Ann. They are joined by the original series’ iconic stars: Patrick Duffy as Bobby Ewing, Linda Gray as Sue Ellen Ewing and Larry Hagman as J.R. Ewing.
The 2nd season on Dallas will have 15 episodes and will air in 2013.
