The cast and crew of the hit show “Dallas” were delighted to receive official word today that TNT has picked up the serial for a third season with 15 fresh episodes to begin airing in early 2014. The series, which is filmed in its namesake city, has delighted fans around the world just as its original version did.
Many were wondering if the series could survive the death of its legendary bad boy, JR Ewing, following the real life death of principal actor Larry Hagman; however, the writing and acting are so strong that the series soldiered on to great acclaim.
In fact, one of the most brilliant cast members of the ensemble is Dallas native Josh Henderson who has truly embraced the role of John Ross Ewing. Playing the role with aplomb, Henderson has a ready grin and glint in his eye which forewarns the audience that some true debauchery is just around the corner as he lives up to the scoundrel persona that would have made his daddy JR proud of him from tip to tail.
“Although we said goodbye to Larry Hagman and his iconic character J.R. Ewing this year, Dallas has many more stories left to tell, and the Ewing clan will continue to honor J.R.’s memory by keeping its audience surprised and delighted,” TNT’s head of programming Michael Wright said.
It may be a long 9-10 month wait for the new season, but Dallas residents will be welcoming the cast and crew back sooner than that as filming begins anew.

Ashley Greene keeps her head down and slips her sunglasses back on while out with Josh Henderson on Saturday afternoon (April 6) in West Hollywood, Calif.
The 26-year-old Twilight actress reunited with her 31-year-old ex-beau for a stroll through Sunset Plaza. The longtime friends reportedly dated back in 2006.
NEW YORK – When Larry Hagman died of cancer last November, TNT’s “Dallas” reboot was put to the test over how to write his character out of the show.
Hagman’s final episode ended with conniving Texas oilman J.R. Ewing talking on the phone to his son, John Ross, and the sound of gunfire reminiscent of the “Who Shot J.R.?” cliffhanger in the original CBS series, which aired from 1978 to 1991.
Now the show is embroiled in a murder mystery to find out who killed J.R.
Josh Henderson, who plays John Ross, said in a recent interview that it’s strange to be on the set without Hagman.
“Not having him anymore, it’s just very different, and we miss him. You know he would want nothing but for us to continue going with the show because as long as ‘Dallas’ is on, we’ll be talking about J.R., and I’ll always be trying to live up to him and it’s gonna be, you know, as long as the show’s on the air, he’ll always be with us,” Henderson said.
The 31-year-old actor said he’s ready to be the main villain on “Dallas,” now in its second season on TNT (Mondays, 9 p.m. PDT). The reboot has pitted cousins John Ross and Christopher (played by Jesse Metcalfe) in a battle for control of Ewing Energies.
“We’ve been doing this for going on two years, and I feel like I really know who John Ross is, and I really now completely understand the ups and the downs of John Ross and J.R.’s relationship and I’m excited about it. … I think people trust me enough now … to at least carry on the torch a little bit for the Ewings.”
It’s not an exaggeration to say Henderson fell into show biz.
Henderson started on the WB reality series “Popstars” in 2001, where he won a spot in a music group. Soon after, an agent asked to meet with him about the possibility of acting.
“I didn’t even know what an agent was,” he said. “My first audition, I didn’t have a headshot, but I had a Teen centerfold from the music stuff I did, and the producers of this TV show thought it was hilarious.”
Henderson says his naivete worked to his advantage.
“Everything happened so quickly. I was just excited to be there. And I think that energy and that kind of, not ignorance, but I was just so green, I wasn’t thinking about it, I just did it. And I think that’s really what helped me.”
Within three weeks of signing with an agent, he booked a TV pilot and a film on the same day.
Henderson has been recording music that hopefully will be featured on “Dallas.”
At the Dallas Paleyfest panel, TV Guide’s Will Keck has Josh Henderson and Linda Gray read lines from a 1988 Dallas script that featured a young John Ross and Sue Ellen. Josh Henderson decides to then speak like a very pip-squeeky 8-year-old, which makes the audience crack up at every line.
The “Dallas” star admits he’s terrified of sharks… and explains the weird incident that caused his phobia.
