Dallas Axed, Twin Peaks To Return

The remake version of super-soap Dallas has been cancelled after three seasons but Twin Peaks fans are waking to news of a new season after 25 years.

Dallas returned in 2012 after record breaking 14-season, 357 episode run which ended in May, 1991. The revived series was an instant ratings winner with original cast members Larry Hagman, Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy returning to their original roles as well as regular nemesis Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval) also back in the plot.

However tragedy stuck midway through season two when the star of the show Larry Hagman died from cancer. The show continued for the rest of the season with the death of his character, the notorious J.R. Ewing written into the plot and a third season was commissioned.

However, rating fell in Season Three with the show shedding more than a third of its audience after Hagman’s death.

Season three of Dallas ended with the death of main character Christopher Ewing. If the show doesn’t return somewhere else the cliff-hanger ending will become a loose-end. The end of Dallas on TNT may not mean the end of the series. The producers of the show are now shopping season four to other networks.

Twin PeaksMeantime Twin Peaks will return after 25 years. In the final episode Laura Palmer says “see you in 25 years”. Creator David Lynch is keeping his fictitious character to her word and produce a new third season to air sometime in 2016.

‘Twin Peaks’ only ran for two years in 1990 and 1991.
