AceShowbiz - "Dallas" will have an on-screen farewell with %cLarry Hagman% and his alter ego in the wake of the actor's passing. TVLine reports that the show will feature J.R. Ewing's funeral in the eighth episode of season 2 that is slated to air March 11, 2013 on TNT.

The said farewell episode will reportedly bring back a number of familiar faces from the original 1980s series. Some of the returning actors set to appear in season 2 are %cTed Shackelford% and %cJoan Van Ark%, but it's unclear if they will appear in the J.R. funeral episode.

Before losing his battle against cancer on November 23, 81-year-old Hagman had filmed several episodes of the drama series. His death didn't not significantly impact the production of the show, but producers quickly planned a proper send-off for the veteran actor.

"Dallas" will kick off its second season January 28 at 9 P.M. ET on TNT.
