Social Media Campaign to Revive ‘Dallas’ Falls Flat
A social media campaign launched by fans of cancelled TV drama Dallas has failed to save the show.
Bosses at the TNT network announced last month that the revived hit will not be coming back for a fourth season, prompting more than 500,000 viewers to take to Twitter to show their support for the sex-and-scandal drama and ask for a reprieve or a move to another network.
Stars Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson and Brenda Strong threw their support behind the online campaign, but their efforts have failed to save the show.
You/we all tried our best Loved the 3 seasons and everyone of you as well I'll write personally as I can. As always my very best

Executive producers Cynthia Cidre and Michael M. Robin say, “After a six-week attempt to try and land our beloved Dallas at another network, we have to inform you that we have not succeeded…
“We so appreciate the outpouring of support by all of you, and the #SaveDallas campaign was a truly remarkable undertaking. We cannot fully express how much we loved making this show for you and with you. We had three wonderful years together, and we had the times of our lives bringing this iconic show back to television.
“Thank you for your support; thank you for your loyalty to our wonderful characters, and thank you for watching our show. We wish you all our very best, and thank you again for loving Dallas.”
