TNT's first 'Dallas' trailer

“No drilling on my ranch!”

Yup, Dallas is returning to TV and we have the first full trailer (don’t get too riled up, show doesn’t premiere until next summer). The preview sort of looks like TNT is trying too hard to have it both ways here — let’s have the old familiar cast plus a bunch of young hotties. Or is that simply being admirably multi-generational? See what you think:

And here’s Ken Tucker with his take.

    The new actors look so bland, like random guys pulled out of a Hollywood gym.

    • Lala

      Exactly.

    • Dennis

      The only place you have taste, is in your mouth. Your favorite show is probably Jersey Shore.

  • gato

    • Brett

      They should air this now! I can’t wait!

  • David

    Sue Ellen looks wonderful!

    • Coolio Moe DEE

      Linda Gray still gots it! I’ll watch her in anything!

  • Necro

    Better than Falling Skies CRAP.

  • LMFAO

    Does anyone even remotely care about this?

    • Brett

      Yes, I do. They should bring in Ted Shackelford and Joan Van Ark to raise hell for JR. Besides, he needs one of his brother’s wives to bicker with and he always had the best fights with Valene. Bring in Bobby and Betsy too to make life hell for Jon Ross and Christopher, Can’t wait for this show. Linda Gray is hot as ever.

      • tonetrek

      • Valene Ewing

        Mama, isn’t it time to take your meds?

      • Gary Ewing

        Valene, come back to bed.

      • Valene Ewing

        Oh Gaery!

    • rosiecat13

      Yes they doooo!!!

  • TJ

    The 2 younger actors, Jesse Metcalf and Josh Something, look like they want to kiss each other, not the girl.

    • Mrs. Crabtree

      I wouldn’t mind if they did.

      • Nick

    It looked same old, same old to me.

    • stu

      i agree. oil & $…oil & $….

  • dave j

    it looks awesome! can’t wait

  • B-

    My only issue is with the leads. They should have cast better actors who also look good instead of pretty faces who can’t act. Jordana Brewster is fine because she was a soap star back in the day so this is nothing new. But it’s also weird to me that everyone has black or brown hair. No crazy “Lucy Ewing” type to cause trouble? That would have been perfect for someone like Katie Cassidy. Julie Gonzalo was so bland on Veronica Mars. Also, if this is a success does that mean that a revival of Dynasty is on it’s way too? #The80sAreBackAgain

    • Brad

      Speaking of Veronica Mars, couldn’t they have put Rob Thomas as Executive Producer on this? I agree on Katie Cassidy and while you’re at it, see what Charlene Tilton is doing.

    • KikiD

      First thing I thought was why not have Katie Cassidy on as Lucy’s adopted daughter stirring things up. And if Charlene didn’t want to do the show, they could write her off as dead and have ‘Katie’ inherit her shares of whatever Ewing Oil turned into. Golden

  • Jenna

    I find it odd that they will wait another 11 mos before airing this. Sure hope none of the older actors passes away between now and then.
    Linda looks amazing and should be the main star. She has such screen presence.

    • Dennis

      I wish they would air it now. There is no reason to wait except to build excitment. I does look very good, the cast is strong. Good actors playing Jon Ross and Christopher and yes, Linda Gray is simply sizzling hot. Add me to the list of people who think they should bring Gary, Val and the twins to Southfork, at least for a visit. Lucy should show up too.

      • Nick

        Well, the reality is that it is just in pilot form right now. So, they need to write scripts and go into production. So, next summer makes sense, especially since TNT is losing The Closer.

  • Coolio Moe DEE

    This show is going to Rock The Bells! Linda, I want to marry you. They should air this show quickly before Larry Hagman bites the dust then he’ll go like Jock Ewing did in the 1st Dallas.

  • really?

    Considering ew would rather spend time whacking off to disease infected jersey shore losers, the trailer did an excellent job of showing the ewing feud continuing along generational paths. If ew wasn’t full of lame pathetic pedofiles, you could have gotten the message. Morons

    Dallas was always multi-generational. Miss Ellie? Jock? They were the foundation the younger generation could rely on and/or rage against. Formula still works. I was surprised how good this looks… but mostly for Patrick and Linda’s strong perfs. Larry so far seems a bit player in this. I do rather love the idea that it’s Christopher vs. John Ross – Dallas: The Next Generation.

  • sam

    I never thought that I would look forward to a Dallas reboot, but I was anxious to see more of it after I saw the trailer. I guess that I have missed JR and Bobby, after all. Summer is a perfect time for the show.

  • Carter McKay

    They need to skillfully weave flashback footage into the story line. Including Miss Ellie and Jock and others who have passed from this earth.
