‘Dallas’ season 3 premiere postmortem: EP Cynthia Cidre on what’s next

Harris is now a free man. That was the cartel who got him out of jail?
The pitch in 301 is that the cartel has bought off a judge, and they dropped the charges. However, I could blow your mind by telling you the real truth, which you will find out at the end of 302. I was never the person who went to the end of the book and read the ending. Never.

The official word came today, DALLAS has been renewed for a third season. The official word came after series star Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing) tweeted:

Patrick Duffy ‏@therealpduffy 8h
OK all my tweet friends. It’s official. We are on for season 3. Do in large part to you all. Deepest thanks

This is good news for those who were hoping the show would be back. I’m hoping this means series Executive Producer Cynthia Cidre corrects her mistake at having Harris made such a heavy. While I know he’s supposed to be the town heavy, but I truly hope Cidre scales back on the amount of villainy. I think Ryland works better as a complicated baddie rather than an out-and-out mustache twirling villain. Read the official.

‘Dallas’ renewed for third season

The Ewing clan will continue their TV dynasty.

TNT has picked up a third season of Dallas, with 15 episodes ordered for early next year.

“Dallas has built a passionately loyal following with its expertly woven storylines, clever twists and turns, and numerous outstanding performances by a cast that spans generations,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT. “Although we said goodbye to Larry Hagman and his iconic character J.R. Ewing this year, Dallas has many more stories left to tell, and the Ewing clan will continue to honor J.R.’s memory by keeping its audience surprised and delighted.”

Indeed, some wondered if Dallas would continue beyond the second season after Hagman passed away late last year. The season has averaged 3.8 million viewers per episode when including seven days of DVR playback, and 1.4 million adults 18-49.

According to Cynthia Cidre the Executive Producer of DALLAS there were some things left on the cutting room floor of the finale, including another scene with Harris. Here’s what Cidre had to say as well as a hint as to what is going to happen regarding this storyline, specifically, the daughter Ann (Brenda Strong) has is indeed Harris’. This hopefully will provide more for Mitch next season.

TV Guide Magazine: There was a scene shot for the finale with Ann’s ex-husband, Harris Ryland, phoning their daughter, who was kidnapped as a baby, to tell her it was time she met her mother. But you cut that scene out. Why?
Cidre: First of all, it didn’t have a strong enough build-up for what a [powerful] reveal it was, so it felt kind of lame. But way more importantly, I want to reveal that in Season 2. Why give it up at the end of Season 1? So we’ll be going there big time when we return.

TV Guide Magazine: So this girl will be a major character next year and could possibly be a love interest for the boys?
Cidre: Yes. Her name is Emma. And we’re hoping she’s a blonde because for some reason, a lot of people have been confused by [brunettes] Elena and Rebecca.

The daughter’s name is Emma. I would have loved to have seen my girl Tamara Braun play this part, but she just got a long-term gig on the show NECESSARY ROUGHNESS where she’s scheduled to play the little sister of the lead character. Damn, there goes my dream of ever having Mitch and Tamara work together. And Tamara’s a blonde too.
