Dallas Reboot Canceled By TNT
“Dallas” has been canceled.
TNT announced on Friday that it would not order a fourth season of the series, a reboot of the classic soap that ran for more than 10 years in its original iteration.
The network says in a statement:
“We are extremely proud of the series, which defied expectations by standing as a worthy continuation of the Ewing saga. We want to thank everyone involved with the show, from the extraordinary cast to the impeccable production team, led by the show’s creative forces, Cynthia Cidre and Mike Robin. We especially want to thank the people of Dallas for their warm and generous hospitality during the production of the series.”
“Dallas,” which premiered to great fanfare in 2012, had a sharp decline in ratings by the time of its season 3 finale in late September.
That episode, which left multiple storylines open-ended, is now the series finale.
The sequel series brought back characters from the original show — including Larry Hagman, Linda Gray, and Patrick Duffy — and expanded the canvas with a new generation of Ewings.
Hagman died in November of 2012, during the production of season 2.
