New Era of ‘Dallas’ Headed to TNT

A new generation of “Dallas” is headed for the airwaves.

TNT says it is moving ahead with an updated version of the prime-time soap that aired on CBS from 1978 to 1991. The network announced Friday that the 10-episode season will be broadcast next summer.

“Dallas” veteran Larry Hagman will be back at Southfork Ranch, as will his long-ago co-stars Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy. Hagman will reprise his role as villainous oil baron J.R. Ewing. Gray will again play J.R.’s wife, Sue Ellen, and Duffy returns as his younger brother, Bobby.

The new story focuses on theEwingoffspring as they clash over the future of the family dynasty. Josh Henderson, Jordana Brewster and Brenda Strong are among the newcomers to the cast.
