And the next TV show to get a re-boot is... “Dallas.”

TNT announced Friday that the cable network has ordered 10 episodes of a new “Dallas,” describing the show as “an all-new series based upon one of the most popular television dramas of all time.”

In case you don’t believe them, you can expect to see former “Dallas” stars Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray and Larry Hagman.

The drama, starring Brenda Strong, Josh Henderson, Jordana Brewster and Jesse Metcalf, will debut in summer of 2012 — but the network will air a sneak peek during Monday’s episodes of “The Closer” and “Rizzoli & Isles.”
