TNT has the new Dallas for a second season.
The show is currently averaging 6.9 million viewers in its first season. TNT has ordered 15 episodes for its second season, which is slated to air in 2013.
Dallas is currently airing Wednesdays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) and marks the return to TV of favorite characters from the 80's, including J.R. (Larry Hagman), Bobby (Patrick Duffy), Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) Ewing and a bunch team of younger folks, all of whom are involved in secrets, schemes and betrayals. In this version, J.R. is so vicious that he's double-crossing his own son, John Ross played by Josh Henderson.
Other new performers are: 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.
“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).
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,” he said.
