The series, which continued the saga of the powerful Ewing family, premiered on June 13, 2012. In addition to bringing back the popular characters of J.R., Bobby, and Sue Ellen Ewing, the remake introduced the younger generation of the Ewings. The drama on Southfork Ranch 20 years later was still filled with lies, power struggles and betrayal.
The ratings were strong for the first season, but on November 23, 2012, actor Larry Hagman died, and the show lost many viewers. Hagman played J.R. Ewing in both the original run and the remake of "Dallas," and he was one of the most popular villains on the weekly series. The revival of "Dallas" struggled along for a total of three seasons, and was then cancelled, with the last episode airing on September 22, 2014.
Many fans of the revival tried to petition the TNT network to keep "Dallas" on the air. Viewers who remembered the first show were generally enthusiastic about the remake. However, the nighttime soap failed to catch on with younger television fans.Learn more about Art & Literature
