TNT's Dallas Starts Production on Second Season#1 New Drama with Key Demos Returns Jan. 28, 2013

A whole new wave of back-stabbing, plot-scheming, black-mailing fun is about to sweep over Texas now that TNT's hit drama Dallas has started up production on its second season. The Warner Horizo n Television-produced drama burst onto the scene this past summer, averaging 5.3 million viewers in its first season and ranking as cable’s #1 new drama for the year-to-date with key adult demos. Dallas also ranks third behind TNT’s Major Crimes and Perception among the year’s top new cable dramas with total viewers. The 15-episode second season is set to launch on Monday, Jan. 28 at 9:00 p.m. 

TNT's Dallas centers on the Ewing clan, an enormously wealthy Texas family whose sibling rivalries, romantic betrayals, corruption and even murder are truly legendary. The exciting drama brings back three iconic stars from the original Dallas: Patrick Duffy as Bobby Ewing, Linda Gray as Sue Ellen Ewing and Larry Hagmanas J.R. Ewing.They are joined by the next generation of Ewings, who take ambition and deception to a new level. Josh Henderson is John Ross, the son of J.R. and Sue Ellen Ewing, while Jesse Metcalfe is Christopher, Bobby’s adopted son. Jordana Brewster also stars as Elena Ramos, John Ross’ girlfriend and Christopher's former fiancée, while Julie Gonzalo is Rebecca Sutter, Christopher’s wife.

In addition, Brenda Strong stars as Bobby’s wife, Ann. The second season will also feature Mitch Pileggi as Harrison Ryaland, Ann's scheming ex-husband.

In the second season of Dallas, Sue Ellen's run for governor will be threatened by the secret that she bribed a medical examiner to help get John Ross off the hook for murder. Ryland will come to Ann claiming to have news about her daughter. Christopher will head to Des Moines to find the real Becky Sutter, while the woman he married will start to show her true colors as Cliff Barnes' daughter. And J.R. will team up with Joh n Ross to take over Sue Ellen's loan to Elena and, in turn, gain total control over Christopher and John Ross' new startup company, Ewing Energies. And that's in just the first episode…

Shot on location in the title city, Dallas comes to TNT from Warner Horizon Television, with writer Cynthia Cidre and Michael M. Robin serving as executive producers. TNT’s Dallas< span style="font-size: 10pt;"> is based upon the series created by David Jacobs.

    I’d say Christopher should be filing for divorce and once those bambinos are born, get the heck out of that marriage. Texas is a community property state!

    Maybe Patrick Duffy can resurrect The Man From Atlantis next. LOL!

    Fantastic — can’t wait. I still say they need to have a Pam doppleganger hit the show next season and cause friction in Bobby’s marriage.

    Can’t wait…give ’em hell, JR!!

    Launching this as a continuation was a brilliant idea. I believe the show will have legs now that the first season is out of the way.
