Larry Hagman from Dallas is battling cancer, but the good news is that it's highly treatable.
Apparently it might not even affect his return to the show:
Hagman, who turned 80 last month, is still set to report to work on October 17, when production begins on the revived primetime soap. Hagman is confirmed to appear in at least the first four episodes, and it's likely he'll appear in more beyond that. It's unclear whether he'll need to take any time off while undergoing treatment. Insiders say there's a chance that he'll be able to continue on the show in some sort of capacity throughout the first season, which wraps production at the end of January.
Cancer is scary, no matter how "treatable" it is!
So regardless of that, we're keeping our thoughts with him and hoping he'll get through it all with ease!
Can't wait to see you back, Larry!
