London, November 26 (ANI): The new series of TV drama 'Dallas', which made Larry Hagman a global star in the 1980s, is to be rewritten to reflect the death of his character - scheming oil tycoon JR Ewing, it has been revealed.

Hagman, who was on board when a new version of the show appeared earlier this year, died on Friday aged 81.

"Dallas is midway in production on season two and this sad news will be incorporated into the storyline," the BBC quoted a statement from UK broadcaster Channel 5 as saying.

Hagman featured in a promotional video shot on the first day of filming for the new series and posted last month. The next season makes its premiere in the US on the TNT network on 28 January.

The show was resurrected in the summer, more than 20 years after the original ended, with Hagman starring alongside other original actors including Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray. (ANI)
