It’s hard to describe to young folks how big ‘Dallas’ was when it ran on CBS in the late 70′s/early 80s. Now TNT is trying to recapture some of that ratings magic with a new version of the show.

And this one won’t have new actors taking over the roles of characters we used to love (and hate). This show will have some original actors too.

Yup, Larry Hagman will be back as J.R. Ewing, along with Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray and Charlene Tilton. They’ll be joined by a new cast, including Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Josh Henderson and Brenda Strong.

Here’s the first trailer for the remake premiering next summer. Can the new show enthrall the world with another mystery as big as “Who Shot J.R.?”
