The hottest place to be in late January is Dallas! And we are not just talking about the city, but the hit TNT reboot, where tonight long time fans of both Knots Landing and the original Dallas have gotten their wish!
TV Guide is reporting and has confirmed that Joan Van Ark and Ted Shackelford will reprise their roles as Val and Gary Ewing in a three episode arc during a family reunion in season two of the series sometime in the Spring of 2013!
As many know, when Knots Landing was created the producers spun-off Valene & Gary from Dallas to kick start the new nighttime soap in which their star-crossed love life, and dramatic twists and turns, where many times at the epicenter of the main story. But, the duo has not visited the rest of the Ewings since the early to mid 80′s!
Word is that the executives of Dallas attempted to bring back the Knots pair last season for cameo appearances, but Shackelford, who is on The Young and the Restless as Jeffrey Bardwell, held out for a meatier storyline. He got his wish! Now the question is, will Val & Gary’s grown up twins Bobby and Betsy be in tow too?
What do you think of the news of Ted and Joan, or shall we say, Gary and Val, heading to Dallas? And that is hot on the heels of the series announcing Judith Light will be appearing on Dallas too! Weigh-in!
