Just a handful of episodes into shooting the second season of TNT's successful reboot of "Dallas" on location in Texas last fall, the primetime soap's iconic star Larry Hagman unexpectedly died after a long battle with cancer. Since J.R. Ewing is hardwired into the drama's DNA, Hagman's passing left a hole the size of The Lone Star State itself in the show's storyline. The actor's longtime cast mates Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray, meanwhile, were left to eulogize their friend both in real life and grieve on screen.
Good news, Ewing family fight fans. If the 1 minute and 6 second sneak peek of next summer's TNT reboot of "Dallas" is any indication, sibling rivalry and imploding family units remain the chief export of Ewing Oil, even in the age of "Dr. Phil."
