Larry “JR” Hagman is returning to Southfork Ranch for the pilot of an updated Dallas.
Also signed for the series pilot are two fellow Dallas veterans, Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy, TNT said.
Larry, 79, will reprise his role as villainous oil baron JR Ewing, Linda will again play JR’s wife Sue Ellen, and Patrick returns as his younger brother Bobby.
The original Dallas ran from 1978 to 1991 as a pioneering prime-time soap on CBS.
The new story focuses on the Ewing offspring as they clash over the future of the family dynasty. Josh Henderson and Jordana Brewster also star.
TNT, owned by Time Warner, did not say when the pilot would begin production.
