One of the most classic shows from the 80′s is actually going to get redone. That’s right, things are in production for a â€śDallasâ€ť remake. TNT Network will run the show, which will feature some of the old favorites! For more inside details, with photos and videos too, keep reading below.
The show was about the Ewing family who were a wealthy oil and cattle ranching family. The show was known for its drama and exciting cliffhangers. Talks of redoing the show have been going on for many years, but now it looks America will finally get what it wants.
Not all of the cast in the photo above will be participating, though we have heard Larry Hagman (J.R.), Patrick Duffy (Bobby) and Linda Gray (J.R.’s wife) will be reprising their roles. Since the members of the original show are much older, this version will focus on the Ewings’ children. For this â€śDallasâ€ť remake, TNT Network writer Cynthia Cidre has written in John Ross (J.R.’s son) and Christopher Ewing (adopted son of Bob) who fight about who is in charge.
Some new faces to the television drama will be Josh Henderson as John Ross and Jordana Brewster as Elena. She will apparently get involved in an interesting love triangle! Filming has not started yet, but we should have more news soon.
We have seen older shows redone with some original cast, such as 90210. In the same way this one will focus on the next generation. The original series ran from 1978 up until 1991 and aired 357 episodes. I never saw the original but it sounds very interesting and it may just be a huge success again!
What do you think about a â€śDallasâ€ť remake? The TNT Network seems to be very excited about the opportunity and after many years of talk they are putting the wheels in motion. Will you tune in to watch the new version? After you check out these great pictures and video, leave me your comments in the section below!
