TNT has announced it is not renewing “Dallas” for a fourth season, two weeks after the third season ended.
“TNT has decided not to renew Dallas. 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,” said the cable network.
The new series kicked off in 2012 to great ratings, but those numbers went down pretty quickly. In the end, the show was pulling in fewer than 2 million viewers.
Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray reprised their roles from the original series, and the cast also included Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo and Brenda Strong. Before his death in 2012, Larry Hagman played the iconic J.R. Ewing into season 2 of the series.
