Produced by Warner Horizon Television, Dallas is the official follow-up to the iconic 1980s series.

TNT has ordered 15 episodes for the third season, which is slated to launch in early 2014.

“Although we said goodbye to Larry Hagman and his iconic character J.R. Ewing this year, Dallas has many more stories left to tell, and the Ewing clan will continue to honor J.R.’s memory by keeping its audience surprised and delighted,” said the network’s head of programming Michael Wright.

In addition to Brewster – whose character Elena Ramos could prove to be the main antagonist next season after learning J.R. defrauded her father years earlier in the season finale – the series stars Julie Gonzalo, Jesse Metcalf and Josh Henderson, as well as Dallas’ original stars Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray.

Cibrian to Star in the Hallmark Channel’s “Playing Father”

Eddie Cibrian is bringing his acting talents back to the Hallmark Channel.

The 38-year-old Cuban American actor—who appeared in the 2010 Hallmark movie Healing Hands, opposite Patrick Duffy— will star in the cable network’s latest original TV movie Playing Father, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The made-for-TV film centers on a former musician—played by Cibrian—who, despite having fans around the world, opts to return home to take a job teaching music to disenfranchised children so he can repair his relationship with his own family. Meanwhile, Michael Beach will play a custodian who works at the school in which Cibrian’s character works.

The project is being directed by Eriq La Salle (A Gifted Man, Ringer).

Cibrian’s credits include Third Watch, CSI: Miami and the gone-to-soon NBC series The Playboy Channel.

The telefilm is the latest to join Hallmark’s lineup of original programming, which now includes the Andie MacDowell starrer Cedar Cove, its first scripted drama series.

Playing Father will premiere next year around Father’s Day.

The 31-year-old Brazilian-American actress and her towel-clad cast members appear in a shower room in the latest just-released promo image for the highly anticipated series.

The still evokes one of the classic scenes from the original primetime soap—which aired on CBS from 1978–1991. In that iconic clip, Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy)—after being dead for a season—reappeared alive and well in the shower to reveal that the entire season had all been a dream.

For those who may not get the reference, TNT’s promo department added the tagline, “They’re Back. And No, You’re Not Dreaming.”

Brewster and the next generation of Ewings appear front and center in the image, while Duffy’s pose is nearly identical to that of the original scene.

Dallas is set to premiere this summer on TNT.
