In Hollywood, they’ll try anything twice. In this case, the TV show “Dallas” is coming back 21 years after its triumphant first run. The original "Dallas" ran for 13 years, and inspired one of the most famous cliffhangers in TV history with it’s “Who Shot J.R.?” storyline. Then, as in now, Larry Hagman plays family matriarch J.R. Ewing, head of the oil-rich clan based in Dallas. The original show was based around the shenanigans of the Ewing clan, especially brothers J.R. and Bobby. The new version is based around J.R. and Bobby’s grown sons, John Ross and Christopher Ewing.
The 10-episode season will air on TNT starting at 9 p.m. starting tonight. Linda Gray, who played J.R.’s wife in the original series and Patrick Duffy who played Bobby are both returning and will be joined by Jesse Metcalfe (“Desperate Housewives” and “Passions”) and Josh Henderson (“Popstars and Desperate Housewives”). Jordana Brewster, best known for “The Fast and the Furious” franchise joins the new cast as well.
