Did you watch Dallas in the 1980's??
If so, you definitely remember one of the best moments from that series — the iconic "Who Shot J.R.?" storyline! Yeah! You bet your beautiful assez you know what we're talking about!
Well, what better way to remember Larry Hagman, such an amazingly upbeat and positive cast member, than doing it all over again… this time in the new series, in the second seasond, with a "Who Killed J.R.?" mystery??
This sounds like a fantastic idea, plus, it will give his memorial a multi-episode arc, rather than just one funeral episode. He totally deserves this!!
Here's what one of the producers said:
"We all felt having J.R. die of natural causes would have been completely inappropriate, not only to the character, but also to Larry Hagman."
For those of you worrying about a rewrite that's coming this late and this fast in the game, don't worry — the staff was able to salvage about 80-90 percent of what they originally wanted to do!
We are so excited for this new mystery arc, even with being super sad that Larry is no longer with us!
What a wonderful way to remember him!!
