'Dallas' Season 3 premiere: Carrying on without J.R. Ewing

24 February 2014 1:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Dallas" is starting its new season in a way it never has before, in either its initial or current versions ... without J.R. Ewing.

The iconic character's death echoed the passing of his portrayer, Larry Hagman, but both their shadows continued to loom large over the rest of Season 2 of the TNT reboot. The legacy of J.R. remains a big factor as the third season starts Monday, Feb. 24, even as others try to fill his shoes and new characters pose fresh complications for the residents of Southfork Ranch. And their allies. And their enemies.

As Hagman did, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray -- who also starred in the 1978-91 CBS incarnation -- remain pivotal to "Dallas" as J.R.'s brother Bobby and ex-wife Sue Ellen. The saga picks up 12 hours after it left off, so Duffy feels it's appropriate for J.R. still to be invoked from the get-go, »
