Dallas: Should the TNT Series Be Renewed for Season Three?

Dallas cancel or renewed for season 3?This evening, TNT airs the final two episodes of Dallas’ second season and, unlike the price of oil, the ratings have been down. Will the TV series return for a third season or will it be cancelled instead?

The new Dallas picks up several years after the original show ended. Time has passed but the Ewings and the Barnes are still at each others’ throats. And, though Larry Hagman passed away, there’s still plenty of drama at Southfork. The cast includes Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo, Brenda Strong, Mitch Pileggi, Emma Bell, Kuno Becker, and Judith Light.

Last season, the new Dallas was one of TNT’s most-watched dramas, averaging 4.42 million viewers and a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic.

This time around, the ratings weren’t so hot. The second season has averaged 2.64 million with a 0.8 demo rating. The numbers spiked for the JR Ewing funeral episode but they went back down the following week.

While the ratings admittedly haven’t been as strong this time around, Dallas is still TNT’s best performing show right now. Both Monday Mornings and Southland have only been averaging about 1.4 million viewers.

The cable channel also knows that the show is facing a lot more competition at this time of year — compared to when the first season aired last summer.

While TNT hasn’t cancelled or renewed Dallas yet, it seems very likely that the Ewings will return for another round of in-fighting and deception.

What do you think? Would you like to see Dallas return? Is the show as enjoyable as it once was? Should TNT move it back to summer?

I Absolutely LOVE this show and hope it returns. It’s been so great seeing the cast members return, I know the show will pick up but I think they should burn down the old SF house and build something new….times have changed and so has housing they’ll need new digs to show off that new wealth!

I am a HUGE Dallas fan and have passed on my love for the show to my 15-year-old daughter. The New Dallas Season 1 (to me) was kind of a catch-up season and also setting the scene for Season 2. Season 2 came in strong and ended strong!

PLEASE DO NOT TAKE DALLAS OFF THE AIR! There is still such a story line to be told to continue this series.

I thought it was great when I first herd that Dallas would be coming back least season after being gone for so long. I have enjoyed every minute of the new Dallas well all but losing Larry Hagman (JR), after Larry died, I wasn’t sure if the show would make it without him but after seeing the shows after Larry’s passing I know the show will be fine. I would like to thank the writers, producers and most importantly the great cast of Dallas

Loved both seasons and hope they will bring back a third. The pace and characters are fantastic but most of all there is nothing else like it.

Yes!!!!!!! I’ve been a huge fan of Dallas in the past. Keeping some of the old characters keeps some of the old Dallas alive. It just seems to get better and better. Please don’t cancel the third season. I too am in the 50’s age group and although I liked the old Dallas I sure look forward to the new Dallas each week as well.

Thanks
