A trailer promoting Larry Hagman’s final episodes of Dallas has aired in the US, ahead of the return of the series in America on 28 January 2013.
In the promo, Hagman, in his iconic role of JR Ewing, can be seen delivering the warning: “I can only be good when somebody has got a gun to my head.”
The actor died last month at the age of 81 following complications from throat cancer. Channel 5, which airs the series in the UK said at the time: “Dallas is midway in production on season and this sad news will be incorporated into the storyline.”
According to TVLine.com, JR’s on-screen funeral will air in the eighth episode of season two, which is set to be shown on 11 March. The send-off is rumoured to feature a number of returning Dallas veterans, including several who have not yet been seen on the TNT version of the show.
