TV drama Dallas is to re­turn for a sec­ond se­ries af­ter the show’s come­back proved a rat­ings hit. The pro­gram, which has been ab­sent from the small screen for 21 years, re­turned on US net­work TNT last month and is to air in the UK in Septem­ber. Af­ter al­most seven mil­lion view­ers tuned in to watch the re­launched drama se­ries, TV bosses have com­mis­sioned a sec­ond run. Vet­eran cast mem­ber Larry Hag­man (pic­tured), whose char­ac­ter JR Ewing was fa­mously gunned down in a 1980s cliffhanger, tells Bri­tain’s Daily Ex­press: ‘‘I hope I don’t get shot.’’
