    Sorry for the delayed answer Karin. The current season of "Ewing Empire" takes place in 2008 and will be longer than the previous seasons. I agree with you, it´s better to keep Dusty alive, besides I had included some characters before that had been played by deceased actors (Afton´s mother Arliss, for instance, though not as relevant as Dusty).

    Thank you for your interest Karin!

    Next on "Ewing Empire"...

    "There Will Be Blood"

    This new episode of my fanfic is totally set in present time. One month after Bob´s release from prison, things seem to be more calm at Southfork...

    ...However it´s only a matter of perspective. The younger generation, especially Lucas, Chris and Margaret, disagree with Bob about letting go the whole question of his conviction and Charlie´s confession. Therefore they plot a strategy to bring down the now Senator who was partly responsible for Bob´s sentence. He acted in the trial as the prosecutor and Chris found evidence confirming that there was a link between the judge and the new senator. But the three of them must join forces to expose him and let the truth out.

    Cliff and Afton return from Boston, where they visited Rebecca and her husband Kent. The couple had another baby despite her neurofibromatosis and are very happy with both children. Cally´s daughter Ellie, who now lives at the ranch, asks Afton to give her singing lessons. But she is afraid of having bad memories about her cancer scare. Chris meets his wife Jane, who had miscarried their baby two years ealier and has made her mind about their marriage.

    The lives of Bobby and Betsy Ewing have changed a lot after receiving Jock´s inheritance. He is living a careless life and his former mate Will Monahan is nowhere to be seen. She is a business genius who hired her out-of-luck aunt Sue Ellen as her consultant, and has built a fashion company and also runs a night-club called "Yellow Rose", where members of the family gather and sometimes use for business meetings. Although their parents and their sister Lucy are living in California now, they consider the Ewings of Southfork as their family too and care about them.

    Ray has overcome his health problems caused by a mug at the ranch, and Donna has a very close relationship with their daughter Margaret. However, both women share a well-hidden secret about Ray´s origins that was discovered by Betsy in the past. It has been kept secret...until now. Barbara Southworth and her husband Julian are sharing the Southfork main house with their Ewing kins. They will face problems again when his younger brother begins to stir up trouble within the family.

    Always a Phoenix, Sue Ellen eventually was able to save her business corporation with the unexpected help of Gary and Betsy. Through a new investment in small air lines she has created a transport-based company that works with both his son´s company Wentworth Industries and its biggest competitor, the newly named Ewing Oil, that includes Gary´s Westfork Energies, and environment-friendly Krebbs Resources. Though she has started a new life with Dusty as her partner, Sue Ellen doesn´t forget that there is someone out there who caused her big failure two years before...and she is 99% sure of what his/her name is.

    John Ross and his wife Andrea are a couple born to share their success. They each bought 50% of Pam´s former company Wentworth, and right before the wedding, they found about it, which made them its only owners. They travel around the world doing business, sometimes together and others alone, and their only frustration is that they have no children yet. As his father before him, John Ross wants someone to pass the company some day. Their relationship with the other Ewings has softened thanks to Andrea, though Pam still doesn´t trust her nephew completely.

    The next episode will also introduce a mysterious new character "played" by Ray Liotta, as well as appearances of old faces familiar for fans of the classic "Dallas".

    Stay tuned in to read the new episode, as well of the whole Pilot of "Return to Knots Landing" in the Fan Fiction Forum. Thanks to you all for your support and encouragement!

    :thank:

    You're welcome Toni. So when will you get around to post on your Last Year of Southfork series?
    I'd love to read more of it. :)

    Karin, I´ll keep on posting next month of July, probably. Actually, right now I have so much material in my mind for each and every fanfic of mine that I´m a bit overwhelmed. I will post all of them because I enjoy writing them and because I think most of you will enjoy reading them, especially "Star".

    In the specific case of "The Last Years of Southfork", everything was plotted before I created "Ewing Empire" and I mentioned a few details in the first episodes of the latter, so I don´t think I can / I should make any changes at all. I don´t wanna be too perfectionist otherwise I´ll never post anything again...It´s like coffee: a good cup of instant coffee can be better than a cup of old-fashioned coffee (sometimes).

    Thanks again for your interest, it means a lot to me!! :best:

    It's nice to see that you are back to posting. :)
    So how about an update on the "The Last Years of Southfork" story?

    I still need to read this from the beginning and it starts there... ;)

    To @Karin Schill and anyone else interested in my "Dallas" midquel (you know, the one that tells all about what happened between J.R.´s suicide in 1990 and Bobby and Pam´s return to Southfork, at the beginning of "Ewing Empire"), I have to tell you that I think it´s almost impossible to keep writing EE and my other 2 future fanfics ("Star" and "Return to Knots Landing"), and also add to this list the miniseries project that was "The Last Years of Southfork".


    I have re-posted on my "Soaptime Fiction" site the complete synopsis of TLYOS so you can have plot details and references, and start or go on reading EE. I hope this may help you to get into my stories more easily, but for beginners, keep in mind that references to those "missing" 10 years are quite frequent in the first 10 episodes of EE, including some flashbacks like Miss Ellie´s request to Clayton in her deathbed, among other significant scenes.

    [​IMG]

    As you all must know since you are writers too, and much more prolific and loyal to the classic "Dallas" than "moi", sometimes the ideas for the stories may be appealing to us but not practical, and the (bad) influence of other "real" TV soaps like TNT "Dallas", "Revenge" or "Empire", may change the way one writes and even become a "bad" inspiration. And that is something that I try to avoid, even if it takes me longer than usual to finish the episodes.

    [​IMG]

    So that´s all folks! I´ll be posting here the upcoming episode "There Will Be Blood" within a few days, as well as a couple of video promos. My YouTube playlist with previews and openings can be found here.

    My apologies to anyone who decides not to read my fanfic for this reason (I will understand), but hey, you might find it fun anyway!

    Re-casting news:

    Due to the non-active career of actor Chris Demetral, who "played" Christopher Ewing in "JR Returns" and in "Ewing Empire" too (so far), and since video promos are vital for me to keep my interest, I have re-cast the Christopher character with...

    [​IMG]
    ...American actor James Wolk, who has starred in the "Goliath" limited series this year. He has a "past" in the soap territory, though not too successful, leading the big failure that was "Lone Star", a brief soap where he played a Texan con man working in the oil business who lived two different lives and had two wives. Later he played Sigourney Weaver´s son in the miniseries "Political Animals".

    [​IMG]
    He quite obviously has "the right stuff" to
    play anyone on "Ewing Empire"!

    He was also seen as scheming Bob Benson in "Mad Men", and episodically in other big hits like "Shameless" and "Billions". I hope you can imagine him as the adopted son of Bobby and Pam, and natural offspring of Kristin Shepard and Jeff Farraday. He will appear in the new promos too.

    :ty::h3:

    PS: Jesse who? Forget about him! I find James Wolk extremely cute, don´t you...?
