TNT Cancels ‘Dallas’ After Three Seasons

TNT has cancelled Dallas, a show that was started to continue the story of the Ewings. The show starring Patrick Duffy, Jesse Metcalfe, and Josh Henderson was recently axed after a shocking season finale. Although their ratings started off high, the show plummeted after the death of Larry Hagman, who died in 2012 from cancer.

According to Deadline Hollywood, a spokesperson from TNT released a statement after the network decided to cancel the series.

“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.”

Understandably so, some fans are heartbroken about the sudden cancellation.

Cast member Josh Henderson was down about the news, but managed to leave a cryptic note.

Patrick Duffy, who has played Bobby Ewing since the original 70s show was hopeful even throughout the cancellation.

For those that don’t know, the original Dallas aired from 1978 to 1991. The continuation of the Ewing family included new cast members like Metcalfe and Henderson, in addition to the original cast members, Duffy and the late Hagman.
