TNT Taps Third Season of Hit Drama Series Dallas


TNT has renewed the hit drama series Dallas for a third season. Produced by Warner Horizon Television, Dallas centers on the Ewing clan, an enormously wealthy Texas family whose sibling rivalries, romantic betrayals, corruption and even murder are truly legendary. TNT has ordered 15 episodes for the third season, which is slated to launch in early 2014.


"Dallas has built a passionately loyal following with its expertly woven storylines, clever twists and turns, and numerous outstanding performances by a cast that spans generations," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "Although we said goodbye to Larry Hagman and his iconic character J.R. Ewing this year, Dallas has many more stories left to tell, and the Ewing clan will continue to honor J.R.'s memory by keeping its audience surprised and delighted."



TNT's Dallas stars Patrick Duffy as Bobby Ewing, who is now the senior member of the Ewing family following the death of his older brother, J.R. Ewing. Linda Gray stars as Sue Ellen Ewing, J.R.'s former wife and the mother of his son, John Ross, played by Josh Henderson. Jesse Metcalfe is Christopher, Bobby’s adopted son, and Jordana Brewster is Elena Ramos, who grew up in the Ewing household and is now fighting for her own family's legacy. Julie Gonzalo is Pamela Rebecca Barnes, Christopher's ex-wife and the daughter of Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval), a longtime rival of the Ewings. Brenda Strong stars as Bobby’s wife, Ann, while Mitch Pileggi stars as Harris Ryland, Ann’s scheming ex-husband. The ensemble cast also includes Emma Bell as Emma Brown, a sheltered beauty whose father has taught her to distrust the world around her, and Kuno Becker as Drew Ramos, Elena’s troubled brother who has recently returned to Southfork.


Dallas launched on TNT last summer and ranked as basic cable's #1 new drama of 2012 with key adult demos. In its second season, Dallas has averaged 3.8 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery, with 1.6 million adults 25-54 and 1.4 million adults 18-49.


Created by David Jacobs and shot on location in the title city, Dallas is executive-produced by Cynthia Cidre, Michael M. Robin and Robert Rovner.

    Wonderful news!! I just love this show. The old guard of Patrick, Linda, and Ken is still fantastic of course but Josh Henderson and Julie Gonzalo really stepped it up this year and showed that the new guard can also carry this show into future seasons. Pairing John Ross and Pamela was brilliant and the actors have amazing chemistry together. I just wish JR was alive to see it because that would add even more drama. But they proved this season that they can lead the show and another Barnes/Ewing marriage should be very interesting. Can’t wait!

  • Patrick Gillease

    I’m a little surprised by the renewal, though happy for it. I’m more suprised that TNT isn’t moving it back to summers where it performed much better for them. Then again, there is still plenty of time to change that decision. Move it back to summer please! The regular season has too much to watch as it is!

    Now get rid of Bobby, Sue Ellen and Bobby’s wife THEY SUCK! Bump down to Reoccurring status

  • LisaM

    Hated the John Ross is messing with Emma. I wanted her gone via overdose. Colourless and cliched character. But glad for the actors.

  • SF

  • City Kitty

  • Blondie

  • Ron

    Great news. I heard it was very close to getting a 20 episode renewal. oh well … 15 is still great! and BigBrotherFan … bite your tongue. Linda Gray as Sue Ellen rocks it. She totally steals every scene she is in!

  • Sherry DieHardDallasFan4EVER

    Of course DALLAS was renewed! How could all us diehard fans with a voice, view and internet, be ignored! The show and cast are like our very own “FAMILY”. Spice up season 3 with a romance between Bobby and the beautiful but lonely Sue Ellen. This kind of story line has many others within it. And yes, bring back some of the old characters! The show is an “ICONIC JEWEL”, let it shine!

    I am a fan from Austria, Europe and I am not happy that our TV station ORF has stopped airing after the 6th episode of the 2nd seaso or so …
    Super RTL shows it, so I hope they also will air the 3rd season next year.
    Love it greetigs chris
