I can't remember if this was ever discussed but what if Larry Hagman wasn't saved by his liver transplant in 1995 and the Dallas franchise never had JR Ewing (at least portrayed by Mr. Hagman) after the end of the CBS series run in 1991? How would the Dallas franchise develop from what we know now if Mr. Hagman wasn't a part of it, if at all? Surely Dallas: JR Returns and Dallas: War of the Ewings wouldn't have been made. With the popularity of the Dallas DVD released from 2004-'11, would that have driven a revival of the series? Would the 2012-'14 TNT Dallas ever existed? Would a reboot be more likely or would the series remain dead? Story-wise, how would it be explained if JR had committed suicide in Conundrum? The Dallas section has been slow so I thought I'd throw this idea out there. I was always very thankful that Mr. Hagman lived for an additional seventeen years and appeared in the CBS Dallas movies and the TNT Dallas.
