Will We Ever See a Bobby and Pam Reunion on TNT's New DALLAS?

When longtime fans of the hit series, Dallas  heard that when the new updated version would not include Pam Ewing (played by Victoria Principal) but that instead Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) would be wed to his new wife, Anne (Brenda Strong)  many were miffed.

But in a piece out today from HitFix.com with an interview from series star, Patrick Duffy, offered up several of the reasons Pam won’t be back, for now!  When Victoria Principal left Dallas in 1987, Pam was written off after a fiery car crash left her disfigured.  The character briefly reappeared on the show one season later in the form of Principal lookalike Margaret Michaels, when it was revealed Pam underwent plastic surgery following the crash and was suffering from a terminal disease with only a year left to live. But the storyline ended there, and fans were left to wonder if Pam really did perish.

Patrick Duffy weighed-in! “Our Executive producer Cynthia Cidre has said that any actor who’s still alive who was on Dallas, has the potential is they could appear. Victoria’s character never died on camera.  Potentially that character could come back..  But, the last time Victoria and I spoke, maybe six months ago, she said she really has no desire to resume an acting career.  She runs this empire she has of self-help, cosmetics, all this other stuff she’s doing and that’s her full-time passion.  Maybe as a lark, but certainly not in any discussion that I know of.   She would be welcomed!”

Duffy went on to say that Bobby’s new wife Ann is pretty cemented into the story, so even if Pam were to come back, Bobby and Ann have something solid. “Even if the show is able to bring Pam back, I must say it wouldn’t be to resume the role of Mrs. Bobby Ewing.  I think that the writers are married both literally and figuratively to the Bobby/Ann relationship, which I love because Brenda is unbelievable.”

So what do you think of Bobby moving on with his life with a new women? Do you wish Victoria Principal would come back to stir the pot, if the series got a second season? The new Dallas premieres June 13th on TNT at 9PMEST!

I think Victoria Principal closed that door when they brought back Patrick Duffy after the Dream year and made her weak etc the writing! I loved her I thought their story was great but their was some tensions on the set etc she has went on and let’s be honest she has had a lot of plastic surgery and Hollywood is not kind to women who look different she won’t be back I for one loved their story but a lot of politics as usual were involved with the last years. Anxious to see if it is any good!

I am looking forward to seeing it again.I loved Pam and Bobby to I also liked Sue ellen, She was my favorite. The whole cast was good, hope this series is as good as the first dallas, Cant wait for it to start.

Pam has left the building. And it’s OK. Sometimes characters leave the canvas and stories can continue. Such developments make for more story possbilities and more drama.

I enjoyed VP as “Pam” but I have to agree that her ship has sailed. If she would come back sounds like it would be a temporary thing. Curious to see the New Dallas.

What about bringing back Sasha Mitchell who played James Beaumont ,J.R.’s illegitimate son ?

Fans were miffed? Not this one. I detested Pam – one of the most annoying characters ever. I actually applauded when her car exploded. That they didn’t have the guts to TRULY kill the character was disappointing.

Besides, Bobby has a new wife in the new series. That’s Brenda Strong as Ann Ryland Ewing.

On top of that, the guest stars appearing from the old show are already known. We’ll get Ray, Lucy, & Cliff Barnes. The series is in the can, and hey could surprise us sure, but I don’t think we’re getting any other surprise characters from the old show. Gut feeling.

I would’nt say I detested Pam I really could care less if she comes back or not, But it would be interesting if she did show up and try to weasel her way back into bobbys life but there’s no way he will leave his wife for her, Then she could ride off in the sunset again. Looking forward to seeing dallas and all of the original cast.

I’d rather them come up with a convoluted reason to bring April back then to bring Pam back, which would be a more reasonable explanation for her appearance.

Looking forward to the reboot! I have a feeling it’s going to be the guilty pleasure of the Summer! Can’t wait!!

I would love to have Victoria back on Dallas, but only if Pam and Bobby were to get back together sometime down the line. I can’t see Pam coming back to Dallas and her not being with Bobby at some point. So if Pam and Bobby will not be together I would rather Pam not come back.

Yes, Vicki, you’re correct. Patrick Duffy and Victoria Principal have such amazing chemistry, sharing screen time with another actress would not ring true. At this point I say leave well enough alone and tell a new story.

I even liked Bobby being with April when he was married to her. I think she would have been good for the show, if they didn’t kill her off first. She would have stood her own against JR Ewing.
I, also, think it would have been great if Pam could have came back to be w/Bobby. But since she may not come back, how about Cliff Barnes himself; Cliff Barnes’s daughter; Jenna’s son, Lucas, which is Bobby’s anyway; Lucy? I think all these people would be a great addition to the Dallas clan. That way it would give them more to fight about, cheat on and whatever else like that.

They need to also bring back Sasha Mitchell, the one that played JR’s illegitimate son, with his wife and grandson on as well.
It would be even really great if they would bring back as much of the original cast of Dallas on if possible to make it even more interesting, more story plots, twists and turns and so on like that.

I think in the second season finding out that Pam had indeed died Bobby should have shown a little grief..She was his first love and the mother of his son.. He was so cold and uncaring. They could of had a letter to Bobby as she did for Christopher with him showing grief. Sue Ellen showed more and even made a comment of what Cliff had done hiding the fact that Pam died just so Bobby could make a snide remark about getting over her a long time ago. It was really disappointing and makes me look at the Bobby character in a whole different light but not in a good way.

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.

After the jump, watch George Kennedy as Albert on The Young and the Restless in scenes with Eric Braeden and Joshua Morrow (Nick).  Then share your thoughts on the passing of this talented actor in the comment section below! (more…)

We all loved Josh Henderson’s portrayal of John Ross Ewing on TNT’s defunct revival of the classic primetime soap, Dallas.

Since Dallas was never able to find a suitable home at another network, Henderson had teased via social media some time ago that he had something big in the works.

Now it is revealed! On Friday, E! announced plans for its second scripted series following The Royals.  The new show is called The Arrangement and stars Henderson alongside Christina Evangelista. The story revolves around a young actress named Megan Morrison (Evangelista), who auditions for a huge summer movie alongside top Hollywood action movie star Kyle West (Henderson). When Megan’s audition leads to a first date with Kylie, she’s presented with a contract that could change her life forever. But will she accept The Arrangement?   Michael Vartan and Lexa Doig also star in the series.

On his official Instagram account, Henderson shared his enthusiasm for the reveal of his next role: “Been waiting for bout 4 months till it became official.. And So excited today cuz I can finally announce I’ve got a new show coming !! 1st season will be 10 episodes on E! More to come soon.” (more…)
