NEW: TNT's DALLAS Hot Publicity Still: "They're Back. And No, You're Not Dreaming!"

Taking its cue from Bobby’s dream season and that season’s final episode of DALLAS (in 1986), the new TNT version of DALLAS released its first publicity still for its new campaign, as they gear up for the new DALLAS to premiere on June 13th!  And, it’s tag line, we think is kind of cute!

If you recall, the dream season occurred when Patrick Duffy opted to exit the series, and the show’s producers decided to kill him off.   Then, at the end of a season long sans-Duffy at Southfork, Duffy and the show reached a new deal and the actor decided to return and voila!  He was in the shower!

Check out this kind of  hot and playful shower scene with Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Linda Gray, Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and the rest of the new cast!  Let us know what you think!

I remember when the whole season turned out to be a dream and it started out with Bobby in the shower.Looking forward to seeing dallas again I like that they are using the original cast along with the new ones thats the only reason I am watching.I cant wait to see sue ellen do her thing and hopefully give j r a run for his money, She was my favorite , dallas was a good prime time soap ,will be good to watch it again,We are going back to southfork.

As a hardcore DALLAS fan, I am appalled they would choose to feature The Dream as a marketing tactic for the new series. The original Dream single-handedly destroyed the show’s credibility and it never recovered. Then again, the new series is probably not aimed at me anyway, though I plan to watch.

Nothing to be appalled about. It’s a good marketing piece. I can’t wait for the return of Dallas.

Some people think soap operas are not financially viable during daytime because mostly old people watch. So who is going to watch Hagman at 80, Gray at 71, and Duffy at 63 in primetime? It will be interesting to learn how many viewers Dallas will attract. If soap operas are a dying breed in daytime, why are so many appearing in primetime? Why couldn’t OLTL appear weekly in primetime?

An aged Larry Hagman will be palatable in any episode where Jesse Metcalfe is shirtless. 🙂

JR, Bobby, and Sue Ellen are legacy characters very important to rebooting this series. Would we do without a Nancy Hughes, a Bert Bauer, an Alice Horton, an Asa Buchanan, and a Katherine Chancellor on our daytime soaps? I tire of series that are too homogeneous in age and type.

You pose good questions about why daytime serials are fading while primetime soap seems on the upswing (with two notable pilots in production at ABC no less!). As much as I love nighttime soaps — the heyday of DALLAS, KNOTS LANDING and FALCON CREST — they are not daytime.

I’m feeling kind of “meh” about the return of DALLAS. I’m hoping that they find a way to bring on Donna Mills as Abby Cunningham– she was married to JR and Bobby’s brother and is a great bad girl!

I am looking forward to watching Dallas. It’s nice to have original programming during the summer months. I loved Dallas the first time around. Will they possible re air the movies they did over the years so we can have a refresher ?

I LOVED DALLAS! That said, the dream debacle did upset me and kind of threw my DALLAS relationship for a curve and it was never the same. Still… it seems the powers behind this DALLAS reboot are smart and the series will be strong. The use of the legacy characters to introduce the new generation of Ewings and others and to be integral to storylines is so wise. I like Bobby has a new wife.

And I like the wink-and-smile of this marketing campaign. Proves to me the new DALLAS will be true to its roots and not just borrowing the title, setting, and character names.

The dream mess never bothered me because I was so upset that patrick duffy left the show when he decided to come back I was thrilled so I put the dream stuff on the back burner.And bobbys new wife is the dead woman who tells the stories on desperate housewives.I like that the original cast will be on to introduce us to the next generation If not for them I wouldnt watch.

I can’t wait!!! I watched the original, I own the DVDs through season 7, and I will tune in June 13th. TNT, by giving the green light to this series, and ponying up for the primary stars, has shown good faith in the genre. ABC could learn something from them.

‘Dallas’ star Ken Kercheval Dead At Age 83

Sad news to report for fans of the iconic primetime soap, Dallas.  Ken Kercheval, who played the thorn in J.R. Ewing’s (Larry Hagman) side, Cliff Barnes, has passed away.   The actor was 83 and died at his home in Indiana on Sunday.   The cause of death is under wraps.  He had been previously open about being a lung cancer survivor after years of smoking.

Kercheval was on Dallas for its entire run on CBS from 1978 to 1991, and returned to the TNT reboot from 2012 to 2014 to reprise his signature role.

On Dallas, Cliff Barnes was always the perennial loser when he went toe to toe with ruthless J.R, but in the final season, Cliff beats J.R at his own game and takes over Ewing Oil.  Cliff was also hopelessly in love with Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray) and was the brother to Pam Barnes, played by Victoria Principal.

As for Ken’s first big acting breaks, that came on daytime soap operas when early in his career he appeared on Search for Tomorrow and How to Survive a Marriage.

Later, he appeared on episodic dramas such as Starsky & Hutch, and Crossing Jordan.  His final role was in a movie, 2019’s Surviving in L.A. said to be a comedy/drama in which he plays the business manager of a former teen sitcom star who trashed her life through drug abuse and is fresh out of rehab.

Y&R and Dallas Alum, Oscar Winner George Kennedy Has Died

Photo Credit: WireImage

George Kennedy,  the Oscar-winning star of 1967’s Cool Hand Luke, which also starred Paul Newman has died at age 91, his grandson, Cory Schenkel confirmed.

Kennedy died in his sleep at his Boise, Idaho home early Sunday morning, the day of the Academy Awards.  He had been in failing health ever since his wife Joan died a little over a year ago. George had been under hospice care for the past month.

In the soaps, Kennedy is most remembered for his guest stints on The Young and the Restless playing Victor Newman’s despicable father, Albert Miller.  Kennedy first played the role in 2003 and then reprised it again in 2010.   Victor’s relationship with his father gave Eric Braeden some of the finest material of his career as the complex Victor.  Albert had abandoned his family, causing his son to be raised in an orphanage.

CBS original primetime soap Dallas also featured Kennedy as Carter McKay, one of the Ewing families bitter enemies from 1988 to 1991.  Geroge also played the role in two follow-up TV movies, 1996’s Dallas: J.R. Returns and 1998’s Dallas: War of the Ewings.  In addition, Kennedy appeared in several of the 70’s major disaster films including the original Airport and several sequels, as well as in Earthquake.  In the 80’s, he would appear in The Naked Gun franchise of films along with Leslie Nielsen.
