Dallas 2012 is a TNT network continuation of the original drama that aired on CBS from 1978 until 1991. While several principle characters have returned for the new series, namely J.R. Ewing, his brother Bobby and ex-wife Sue Ellen, the focus is mainly on JR.'s son, John Ross, and Bobby's adopted son, Christopher. Both are grown and vying for power within the family, with John Ross showing the ruthlessness and greed of J.R. and Christopher being more like Bobby, caring more about South Fork ranch than the oil business.

Adding fuel to the family fire is the presence of Rebecca Sutter, recently married to Christopher and secretly plotting behind his back with her brother Tommy, who works on South Fork as a ranch hand. Christopher's ex-fiancee, Elena Ramos, works with and dates John Ross, who drills on ranch land against his uncle Bobby's wishes and discovers a large oil reserve. The sparks fly when John Ross confesses about the drilling and tries to stop Bobby from selling South Fork into conservatorship. Christopher becomes angry at this because he has been trying to develop an alternative form of energy and needs Bobby's financial backing to go forward with it.

In the background, J.R. plots to get control of South Fork back from Bobby by swindling the conservatorship. Bobby discovers he is very ill and must undergo an operation but decides to keep it a secret from his family. Sue Ellen, now sober and very successful in her own right, considers a run for governor of Texas. She is surprised by unexpected support from J.R., who tells her he wants a fresh start.

Dallas premiered on TNT on June 13, 2012 and drew nearly seven million viewers. On June 29, the network renewed the series for a second season of 15 episodes, which will air in 2013.
