Bobby hopes that his and J.R.'s sons stay out of the family's feuds, but it does not prevent the young Ewings from clenching their fists when seeing each other.
TNT has released a new promo for its upcoming series "Dallas" which will premiere this summer. Sharing a longer look at the drama show, it opens with footage of the Ewing clan sitting together for a meal while having different thoughts.
"Southfork was meant to be mine from beginning," J.R. says inside his head. John Ross Ewing III tells himself, "I've spent my whole life trying not to be his son," as Bobby wishes that his adopted son Christopher and his nephew do not get into the family's feuds.
"Dallas", which will debut with a two-hour episode on Wednesday, June 13 at 9/8c on TNT, is a continuation of the original series of the same name that aired on CBS from 1978 to 1991. The story revolves around J.R.'s son John Ross Ewing III (Josh Henderson) and Bobby's adopted son Christopher Ewing (Jesse Metcalfe).
Now grown, John has become almost a carbon copy of his father, bent on oil, money and greed. Christopher, meanwhile, has become a lot like Bobby, in that he is more interested in the upkeep of Southfork Ranch.
Patrick Duffy and Larry Hagman return as Bobby and J.R. respectively, joined by such returning stars as Linda Gray, Charlene Tilton and Ray Krebbs. Jordana Brewster and Julie Gonzalo additionally support the cast ensemble as new characters.
