Funeral for JR after Hagman death

JR Ewing will be given a proper Dallas send-off after the death of actor Larry Hagman

JR Ewing is to get a send-off with a proper funeral on Dallas.

TNT begins the second season of its Dallas revival next month and the network said that it will hold a funeral for Larry Hagman's memorable character at some point in the 15-episode season but that it hasn't been filmed or scheduled yet.

Hagman died at age 81 over the Thanksgiving weekend.

TNT spokeswoman Erin Felentzer said the network isn't saying how JR will be killed off in the series. Hagman kept working until soon before his death due to complications of cancer, and will appear in several of the new season's episodes.

Hagman's character is a television icon dating back to the Who Shot JR? episodes in the 1980s.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
