It’s official, Dallas is coming back. TNT has ordered an updated version of the 1978-1991 TV show for summer of 2012. Dallas stars Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo and Brenda Strong. Joining them will be Dallas vet Larry Hagman as J.R. Ewing, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray.
“TNT has explored the possibility of an updated version of Dallas for several years, but it wasn’t until we read Cynthia Cidre’s outstanding pilot script that we knew we had the foundation for a great new series,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies.
