It’s the end of the line for the Dallas TV show — for the second time. TNT has announced that they’ve cancelled the new Dallas TV show after three seasons.
A continuation of the successful CBS series from the 1970s, 80s and 90s, Dallas follows the machinations of two generations of the dysfunctional and powerful Ewing clan. The cast includes Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo, Brenda Strong, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Mitch Pileggi, Emma Bell, Kuno Becker, and Juan Pablo Di Pace.
Year-to-year, season three of Dallas was down by 26% in viewership and down by 38% in the 18-49 demographic. It’s one of TNT’s lowest-rated scripted series and that certainly wasn’t a good sign for its chances of a fourth season.
In a statement, TNT said, “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.”
Cidre and the writers have been working on scripts and ideas for a fourth season of Dallas so hopefully she’ll share what would have happened at some point.
What do you think? Will you miss the Ewings? Do you think it should have been cancelled or renewed for a fourth season? Would you watch it on another channel?
This stinks!!! Dallas is one of my favorite shows.
I would totally watch this on another channel.
At least have another season or a 2-hour wrap
special. There were so many loose ends…
bull****!! I will never watch tnt again.

TNT LOST MILLIONS OF VIEWERS””” time for you to step in and grab DALLAS….. SO WE CAN WATCH YOUR STATION!!!! JANTHONY Christian of San Antonio, Tx
Huge mistake TNT. Dallas was the only show worth watching and the only reason I even watched your network.
Dallas is an iconic TV series and was well written, then and now.
You really should rethink this decision.
I can’t believe this was cancelled. Just goes to show the people in charge of these decisions doesn’t care about the viewers. I hope another network picks it up because TNT clearly is not capable of putting thier viewers first.
I cannot believe you cancel Dallas. I am so hooked on the show and I can’t believe the ratings could be that bad. I am hoping that you will see all of the people that are writing to tell you that you shouldn’t cancel, and that you will renew it for another season. There is lots more storylines out there that could be written ,please reconsider
YES I would miss the Ewings! My favorite dysfunctional family! Does TNT take into account those who tape it to binge on later? (I’m one of those) PLEASE-PLEASE-PLEASE, some other network pick it up! Can’t believe TNT is so hair-trigger. The season’s not over yet!
Omg ! Very stupid to cancell it . Put it on diff network and let it play fall to summer very great TV show love it ! I know a lot of ppl that loves , it big mistake if you take it off air hope you think before you do something stupid !
I would watch Dallas on any channel you put it on I loved it then and I love it now!!!!!!!!!!!
I think cancelling Dallas was a HUGE mistake. It has an amazing cast, and an amazing fan base. I think the decision should be reconsidered.
I’m so sad they cancelled the show, I really loved it. I would watch it on another network.
I can’t believe they cancelled this show. I loved it and it left several open story lines. I hope that if TNA doesn’t keep it; that some other channel will take it so I can watch.
I can’t believe this. You put. A great show on with lots of twists and turns, get everybody hyphed up, have a wonderful cliffhanger, then you cancel? How stupid. I’d watch it on any other channel along with many others. Bring Dallas back!!!!
I am tried of the 18 to 49 year olds ruling what is on tv now adays they don’t watch tv they got there phones that’s all they care about and the dumb reaily show about fake people that tink are real people
I wish you would reconsider canceling Dallas. I enjoyed the series.
I hope another network picks up Dallas! Shame on TNT for leaving us hanging like this. You cant just end the show when we all have unanswered questions. I wont be watching TNT anymore. Dallas was their only good show.
