LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - J.R. Ewing, the corrupt oil baron played by recently deceased actor Larry Hagman on "Dallas," will have a proper sendoff on the TNT drama.
The show is preparing a funeral for Ewing, which will air during the eighth episode of the upcoming second season, an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.
The episode is tentatively scheduled to air March 11.
Hagman, who played Ewing on both the original CBS series that ran from 1978 to 1991 and in the TNT revamp of the series that launched earlier this year, died November 23 at the age of 81, of complications from throat cancer.
No other details about the funeral episode, or of the nature of Ewing's demise. Perhaps a twist on the famous "Who Shot J.R.?" cliffhanger is in order?
