If you've missed the drama of Dallas, you're in luck.  

Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray will reprise their roles in the pilot of TNT's reboot of the famed series about the well-to-do Ewing family, the network reports. The next generation of the Dallas cast includes Desperate Housewives' Josh Henderson and Jordana Brewster from Fast & Furious.

In the original series, which ran from 1978 to 1991, Hagman played oil baron J.R. Ewing, Duffy portrayed his younger brother Bobby and Gray was his wife Sue Ellen. The show revolved around the wealthy Ewing family as they feuded over everything from money to sex. 

The modern day update will follow J.R.'s son, John Ross (played by Henderson), and the adopted son of Bobby and Pam Ewing, Christopher, who are involved in a love triangle with Brewster's character.
