Patrick Duffy: Dallas Revival May Fail

Patrick Duffy has admitted there’s a chance TNT’s revival of iconic 1980s soap opera Dallas may fail.

Dallas will return to television next month for its first season since 1991 when the original series ended. While a two television movies aired in the 1990s the Oil based drama has been off air for many years but its legacy has never been forgotten.

Dallas’ return to television is one of the most highly anticipated television moments of the year but actor Patrick Duffy has admitted there’s a chance the revival will fail. While the actor described the return as “a perfect 2012 version of Dallas” the actor admitted if it fails everyone will know about it.

“If we do it again, there’s a chance of screwing it up……..And if this new show fails, the whole world will hear about it.” – Patrick Duffy speaking to the Los Angeles Times.

Executive producer Cynthia Cidre explained the new Dallas was “a show about two generations where the stories aren’t parallel, they’re intertwined. They feed off each other, and they depend on each other.”

Patrick Duffy reprises his role of Bobby Ewing alongside Linda Gray as Sue Ellen Ewing and Larry Hagman as J.R Ewing. Charlene Tilton, Ken Kercheval and Steve Kanaly are also reprising their respective roles from the original series. New cast members include Brenda Strong, Josh Henderson and Jesse Metcalfe.

The new series of Dallas will premier on TNT on June 13th and will air on Channel 5, in the UK, later this year.
