Dallas season three is on its way premiering on Monday night, February 24th at 9PMEST, and as a preview TNT has released this official set-up of the new season and what to look for, plus a preview of the season three premiere!
In story, 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 III (Josh Henderson). Following the death of his revered father, John Ross is out to prove he can be just as powerful an ally or enemy as the infamous J.R., and Sue Ellen is ready to help him any way she can.
Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe), Bobby’s adopted son, is still determined to make a name for himself and his family; but he continues to reel after his engagement to Elena Ramos (Jordana Brewster) fell through, and the search for his mother ended with news that she died in 1989. Elena, having received important information about the original deed to her father’s land, is now consumed with thoughts of justice for previous wrongs against her family, including her brother, Drew (Kuno Becker), and mother, Carmen (Marlene Forte), the Southfork Ranch housekeeper. To find that justice, Elena has turned to an old childhood friend, Nicolas Treviño, played by new cast member Juan Pablo Di Pace, who most recently starred in the series Camp.
The Ewings’ chief nemesis, Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval), has done everything he can to bring the Ewing family down. But when an attempt to sabotage a Ewing oil rig resulted in injuring his daughter, Pamela Barnes (Julie Gonzalo), and killing her and Christopher’s unborn twins, Cliff suddenly found his daughter turning against him. Having helped the Ewings gain a controlling interest in Barnes Global, Pamela is now determined to find a happy ending with her new husband, John Ross, and make a home for herself on Southfork Ranch. Cliff, meanwhile, awaits trial for the murder of J.R., of which he has been accused.
Bobby’s wife, Ann (Brenda Strong), continues to battle with Harris Ryland (Mitch Pileggi), her scheming ex-husband who is now in jail for drug smuggling. Ann also continues to build a relationship with her daughter, Emma (Emma Bell), a sheltered beauty who has teamed up with John Ross to stir up trouble for her father, Harris. Things become even more difficult for Ann with the return of Harris’ controlling mother, Judith (Judith Light).
The third season of Dallas will introduce viewers to Heather, a 20-something ranch hand and single mother, played by AnnaLynne McCord, who was recently seen as Naomi Clark on 90210. When Heather’s ex-husband returns, bringing turmoil back into her life and the life of her 5-year-old son, Christopher steps in to help.
Now on the February 24th the episode aptly titled, “The Return”, TNT previews, “Season 3 kicks off with the Ewings on top, having vanquished Cliff Barnes (guest star Ken Kercheval) and taken over his company. The Ewings are united, with Sue Ellen planning a wedding for John Ross and Pamela. But solidarity among them can only last for so long. John Ross quickly gets into conflict with Bobby over their joint ownership of Southfork Ranch, while also putting his marriage at risk as he enters into an illicit liaison with Emma. Meanwhile, Christopher’s relationship with Elena seems irreparable as Elena returns to Dallas with her own secret agenda for justice. As the betrayals mount, the arrival of a mysterious stranger puts everyone’s plans at risk. ”
