TNT Cancels ‘Dallas’ After Third Season

TNT has canceled “Dallas” following its third season, the network announced Friday.

TNT has decided not to renew ‘Dallas.’ We are extremely proud of the series, which defied expectations by standing as a worthy continuation of the Ewing saga. We want to thank everyone involved with the show, from the extraordinary cast to the impeccable production team, led by the show’s creative forces, Cynthia Cidre and Mike Robin. We especially want to thank the people of Dallas for their warm and generous hospitality during the production of the series,” said a TNT Spokesperson.

The series recently wrapped its third season by killing Jesse Metcalfe’s Christopher Ewing, a shock move that didn’t translate to a ratings bump. The revival debuted to 7 million viewers in 2012 but ratings have dwindled in subsequent years, with the Sept. 22 series finale garnering only 1.7 million viewers. The show was struck a major blow following the death of original “Dallas” star Larry Hagman midway through the second season — although his costars, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray, remained with the second iteration throughout its run.
