Larry Hagman's iconic Dallas character J.R. Ewing is set for a proper send-off on the hit drama reboot.

The Dallas writing team is coming up with an episode revolving around a funeral farewell for the corrupt oil baron played by Hagman, who lost his battle with cancer last month.

According to, Ewing's service is scheduled to air in March during the eighth episode of the forthcoming second season.

Hagman is expected to feature in at least the first five episodes of the new series, but there have been no details about the nature of his character's demise.
