One of the most popular nighttime soaps in television history, Dallas ran for an impressive 13 seasons (14 if you count the five-episode mini-series as a season). But, the CBS TV show was seriously running out of gas by the time it ended in May of 1991. The final season ranked 63rd in the ratings, a far cry from its earlier seasons when it was the most-watched series on television.
Still, the final season has plenty of drama, with storylines centered around murder, kidnappings, blackmail, seductions, and scheming galore. The cast includes Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Ken Kercheval, Howard Keel, Sheree J. Wilson, George Kennedy, Cathy Podewell, Kimberly Foster, Sasha Mitchell, and Barbara Stock. Barbara Eden (Hagman’s co-star from I Dream of Jeannie) even stops by to play a former girlfriend of JR’s who’s out for revenge.
Dallas regularly ended its seasons on a cliffhanger and the final season was no exception. In the two-part finale, JR gets to see what life would have been like had he never been born. In some cases, things are better. In other cases, his family members are much worse off.

I was not a true fan when it originally aired on TV. I followed the series watching some and listening to what others were saying. Years later when the series was available on dvd I decided to watch it from series 1 to 14. Night after night the wife & I looked forward to relax, unwind and get swept away by JR and each new character,especially the women . The fashions and content had never been shown on TV before. I was hooked and became a belated fan.
Friday nights are not the same without Dallas, even after all these years. I’ve seen every episode multiple times and it is one of the few series I would like to own own DVD. I can’t wait for the new series!
Wow, can’t wait to see the new one once they finally film it!
I thought Joel Grey’s appearence at the end was marvelous – well done for J.R.!
Great final season nevertheless…
I would really like to win. This is a great chance to win.
One of my favorite shows from the old days!!!
So cool that 3 of the original stars of fabulous DALLAS are coming back! Just lLoved watching Dallas in the 80’s…
Enjoyed hearing Morgan Brittany (who shot JR?) at our HCR meeting in LA.
Great series! Too bad it had to end, but all great things must come to an end.
Funny thing how i started watching Dallas, My mom’s boss was throwing stuff way and that show she got Dallas season 8, She didn’t want so she gave it to me and I at first didn’t want to watch because i thought it was boring. One day i was bored so i decide to watch to make time go by and i ended up liking so much i have bought seasons 1-11. That is how good dallas is
