TNT Renews ‘Dallas’ for Third Season

Drama saw boost in ratings towards end of second season

TNT will be heading back to “Dallas” for a third season.

Cabler has ordered 15 episodes of the rebooted drama and will bow the new season early next year.

“‘Dallas’ has built a passionately loyal following with its expertly woven storylines, clever twists and turns, and numerous outstanding performances by a cast that spans generations,” said Michael Wright, prexy and head of programming for TNT, TBS and TCM.

The show lost its iconic character, J.R. Ewing, with the death of Larry Hagman in November. Despite that Wright said, ” ‘Dallas’ has many more stories left to tell.”

Program, from Warner Horizon TV,  bowed strongly on the cabler during its frosh run in 2012, but experienced an initial dip in ratings during season two.  Ratings picked up towards the end, and averaged 3.8 million viewers in Live+7.

“Dallas” is created by David Jacobs and exec produced by Cynthia Cidre, Michael M. Robin and Robert Rovner.
