TNT’s ‘Dallas’ will feature JR Ewing’s death and funeral in Season 2

Larry Hagman’ s passing over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend raised some questions regarding the production on TNT’s “Dallas” TV series and the future Hagman’s legendary on-screen character, J.R. Ewing.

According to TV Line on Monday, J.R.’s on-screen funeral will take place during the eighth episode of Season 2, to air March 11, and is rumored to feature a number of returning “Dallas” alums, including those who have not yet made appearances on the TNT update.

Former stars who were already confirmed to reappear this season include Ted Shackelford and Joan Van Ark.

Hagman had filmed six out of the fifteen episodes ordered for Season 2, and while producers were reportedly caught off-guard by the actor’s passing, they have successfully subsequently reworked the season’s plot to reflect the situation.

Hagman, who was best known for his roles on “Dallas” and starring opposite Barbara Eden in “I Dream of Jeannie,” was diagnosed with cancer over a year ago, but continued to work on the TNT series during his treatment.

He died on November 23 at age 81.

“Dallas” returns for its second season starting Jan. 28 at 9 p.m. EST on TNT.
