12 June 1st, 2012 TNT’s DALLAS Has Its Premiere … Where Else, but Dallas!


The stars of the upcoming TNT reboot of the classic nighttime soap Dallas took to the red carpet, but not in Los Angeles, but in Dallas to kick-off the debut of the series slated for June 13th.

The main cast was in attendance at a special event at the Winspear Opera House n downtown Dallas. Special invites were given out for a sneak peek and first look at the premiere episode, and some 65 press outlets were on hand to participate in the evening!

The new Dallas features Larry Hagman as JR Ewing,  Linda Gray as Sue Ellen Ewing and Patrick Duffy as Bobby Ewing. The story centers around the wealthy Ewing family, though the spotlight shifts to younger characters John Ross Ewing III (JR and Sue Ellen’s son, played by Josh Henderson) and Christopher Ewing (the adopted son of Pam and Bobby Ewing, played by Jesse Metcalfe).

Unlike the original Dallas series, all filming this time was done locally in North Texas.   Producers hope to learn soon if there will be a season two and, if so, hope to return to film an additional 13 episodes in Texas.   Take a look at some photos from the premiere here.

Then after the jump, watch some red carpet and premiere interview clips from CBS News in Dallas with Larry Hagman, Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy, Jesse Metcalfe, Josh Henderson with Jordana Brewster!  Are you going to give the rebooted Dallas a go and watch the TNT premiere on June 13th? Let us know!

    I watched it years ago…Don’t know if I would watch it again…..


  2. Vanessa says:

    Watched the entire series (started watching when I was 6!) and have been waiting since May 1993 for the next new episode. I wouldn’t miss it for anything!


  3. Alley says:

    I’m giving it a chance.


  4. Doe says:

    I did watch Dallas those many years ago, but that was then and this is now. I don’t think you can recapture the show and all the people that belonged to that family. I probably wil look at it once. There is a history of failure in trying to be something you are not anymore. Good luck!..

    i watched the orginal series & i must say i am excited about seeing this one – is it going to be like the old series – no it can’t be but i have high expectations – it will be interesting to see the ewing offspring do battle – i love that there will still be a few of the original characters around……..


  6. JLH says:

    I was never a big Dallas fan–I leaned toward Knotts Landing, and even Flamingo Road and Dynasty appealed to me more–but there’s no way I’m missing this. Hope it’s good and hope it does well in the ratings, especially because it’s not on one of the “main” networks.


  7. barbara t says:

    I am looking forward to going back to Dallas again I loved this show and can’t wait for it to start, I hope It is as good as it was back in the day, The same cast of characters is making me want to tune in so the 13th can’t get here fast enough for me.


  8. Rodd says:

    I’m excited to give it a shot and will stick with it so long as it doesn’t become stupid. If it’s well written, I’m in for the long haul. Good luck.


  9. toscanti says:

    Can’t Wait!!!!!!! Love all the new younger actors they have cast. The writer doing this project is amazing, hence the reason Larry Hagman, Linda Grey and Patrick Duffy signed on.

    Josh Henderson will be a breakout star


  11. Joel says:

    The original Dallas was my favorite television show of all time. I am thrilled that it is returning to the small screen 21 years after its cancellation!
