‘Dallas’ Resumes Production After Hagman’s Death

TNT’s Dallas resumed production on its second season Tuesday after shutting down on Monday following the death of star Larry Hagman.

Hagman died last Friday at the age of 81 due to complications from cancer. He was in Dallas at the time of his death, where he had been filming the TNT drama on which he revived his iconic role as scheming oil baron J.R. Ewing.

Six of the second season’s 15 episodes had already been shot with Hagman in them; writers will now presumably work his death into upcoming scripts. Dallas is still set to return as scheduled on Jan. 28.
