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?

Yes , Please bring Dallas back, It was one of only a few show worth watching. I am so sick of all these reality shows, and reruns of shows I hated the first time around. I’m at the point that if you won’t be bringing it back , I will probably just have my cable taken out and just get Netflix. The cable is not worth paying for any more.


Pat October 7, 2013 at 3:04 pm

Yes. I live for Dallas.

Yes. Dallas was great…keep it going!


Maria September 19, 2013 at 5:02 pm

I vote YES there should be a season 3. I never saw the original because I was always working and this new show ties in with the past very well, although the new one is very interesting and has a lot of melodrama.


Melanie September 19, 2013 at 12:08 pm

Yes I would like to see the retrn of Dallas. I enjoyed it in the 1970s and I’m enjoying it now.

I would like to see the show given a fair chance and not taken off the air too soon, like some of those other networks do.

You have to bring Dallas tv show back to finish Clift Barnes off for good


Gail September 12, 2013 at 11:24 pm

Please don’t cancel Dallas. Really enjoyed the original series and now like this one as well. Please don’t let it die off like Larry Hagman.


Carol September 10, 2013 at 2:09 pm

I have been waiting, what’s going on? Is it or is it not coming back? It was great for the Summer months . Nice to watch something worthwhile instead of the stupid sitcoms that are being pushed onto the screen. And, to think we pay for cable TV for those “filler” type shows. Let alone the atrocious amount of advertising.

It’s expected to return in early 2014.
