TNT Plans To Return To Dallas In 2013

Dallas cast

The first few episodes of TNT's Dallas revival have done great ratings for the network, so it's really no surprise that they just opted to renew the drama for another season.

If you haven't watched it, Dallas is a sequel/reboot of the classic 80's series, complete with returning cast members like Larry Hagman and Patrick Duffy. There are still six episodes left in the ten episode first season, which will conclude in August. The show has been averaging a quite healthy (for cable) 6.9 million viewers so far. The new season order will expand to fifteen episodes, and is expected to air in summer 2013.

TNT Head Of Programming Michael Wright had the following to say about the renewal - "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. With Dallas’ 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.”

I'm beginning to wonder if the success of Dallas will bring about a new wave of revamped older series that mix old stars with newly rising talents. I suppose it would be better than a straight remake of an old show such as last year's Charlie's Angels. At least this way older viewers could get their nostalgia fix as well.

Are you glad Dallas has been renewed? What other old shows should get a sequel/reboot?

JR's master plan was a fitting tribute to the end of a TV icon. Surprise ending - intricate plot, twists & turns. I loved it. I'm impressed with the new writing - it's fast moving with lots of OMG's. I hope it remains good so the show will be on for many seasons - even though JR will be missed by all.
