One of the biggest swan songs in television history is now set for March 2013! The Production team of TNT’s Dallas reboot has revealed to TV Line, that they plan to lay J.R. Ewing to rest in the second season’s eight episode, which is slated to air on March 11th.
This information comes nearly three weeks after the sudden passing of television and Dallas icon, Larry Hagman (J.R.) Hagman had already completed filming a number of Season 2 episodes prior to his death. Although production was not significantly impacted, producers quickly began crafting a proper sendoff — one that is rumored to feature a number of returning Dallas vets (including several that have not yet been seen on the TNT version.)
We already know that Joan Van Ark (Valene), Ted Shackelford (Gary,) and Charlene Tilton (Lucy) were filming episodes, could they be part of J.R.’s goodbye now? And, what about the on-going rumors last reported in the U.K. that Victoria Principal is being lured back as Pam, even though the actress has turned down to be part of the reboot previously? Think it could happen now? Just more rumors?
How would you have J.R. die on-screen? Natural Causes? Health problem? Murder? Weigh-in!
