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… Read more »

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.
