The battle for love, money and oil rises again as Dallas, the iconic series centered around the Ewing family, is back with a highly-anticipated two-hour premiere, Wednesday, June 13 at 9 p.m. ET, exclusively on Bravo!

A continuation of the backstabbing machinations of oil and cattle-ranching tycoon J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) and his wealthy Texas family, Dallas, which airs day-and-date with TNT in the US, delves into the world of John Ross Ewing III (Josh Henderson, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) and Christopher Ewing (Jesse Metcalfe, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES), the now-adult sons of J.R. and Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy, DALLAS), respectively.

“DALLAS is one of television’s most iconic series and we’re thrilled to bring it to Canadians this summer. It is the perfect anchor to Bravo!’s summer lineup,” said Catherine MacLeod, Vice-President, Specialty Channels, Bell Media. “Everything you loved about the old DALLAS is back, with the original stars just as ruthless and dynamic as ever, with the added excitement of a hot new younger generation.”

With a feud now brewing between John Ross and Christopher, the stage is set for J.R. to return to his infamous ways and rekindle the long-standing rivalry with his younger brother, Bobby. DALLAS also stars Jordana Brewster (CHUCK) as John Ross’ girlfriend and Christopher’s former love Elena Ramos; Julie Gonzalo (VERONICA MARS) as Rebecca Sutter, Christopher’s bride; Brenda Strong (DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) as Bobby’s wife, Ann Ewing; and original cast member Linda Gray (DALLAS) as Sue Ellen Ewing, J.R.’s ex-wife.

In the two-hour premiere of DALLAS entitled “Changing of the Guard/Hedging Your Bets” (Wednesday, June 13 at 9 p.m. ET), the family gathers at  Southfork Ranch for Bobby’s adopted son Christopher’s wedding to Rebecca Sutter. Although the occasion is joyous, an old family rivalry crosses generations after secret oil drilling on Southfork results in a massive gusher. J.R. starts asking too many questions and his plot to take control of Southfork begins to unravel. Meanwhile, Christopher and Elena bury their feelings in order to work together on a business deal, but Christopher’s new bride may have secrets of her own.
