The cameras are rolling again on the set of TNT‘s new Dallas series following the death of co-star Larry Hagman. Hagman, who reprised his role as the villainous J.R. Ewing from the original series, died from cancer complications Friday while the show was on Thanksgiving break. Filming was originally slated to resume yesterday, but the series stayed dark out of respect for Hagman. Dallas is currently shooting Episode 6 from its 15-episode second season. Hagman worked virtually until his death and is expected to appear in all of the first six episodes. As of now, there is no hiatus planned to allow the writers to craft a proper send-off for J.R., though I hear production is ahead of schedule and can afford to do that without missing the January 28 premiere date. Dallas writers are still breaking stories and writing scripts for the remainder of Season 2, so the departure of J.R. is likely being weaved into the show’s upcoming plot lines.
