TNT's current reboot of the hit series DALLAS is set to resume shooting tomorrow following the death of original series star Larry Hagman, Entertainment Tonight has reported. The late star had reprised his role as 'J.R. Ewing' for the network's reboot.

A show representative confirmed to ET f that the show will continue shooting this season, set to premiere on Jan. 26, though it is not clear how the show will handle the death of Hagman, and in effect, J.R. Ewing.

On Nov. 23, TV star Larry Hagman, who played 'J.R. Ewing' on DALLAS, died at the age of 81.

TNT released a statement on Nov. 23 after news of Hagman's passing: "All of us at TNT are deeply saddened at the news of Larry Hagman's passing. He was a wonderful human being and an extremely gifted actor. We will be forever thankful that a whole new generation of people got to know and appreciate Larry through his performance as J.R. Ewing. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this very difficult time."

Son of Broadway's Mary Martin, Hagman graced the Broadway stage throughout the late '50s and early '60s in The Beauty in Part, The Warm Peninsula, The Nervous Set, God and Kate Murphy and Comes a Day.

Hagman rose to fame with his conniving portrayal on CBS' "Dallas" from 1978 to 1991. Despite a recent battle with cancer, Hagman had returned to the show to film the first—and part of the second—season of TNT's reboot. On television, Hagman also appeared as 'Major Anthony Nelson' on ABC's "I Dream Of Jeannie".

He passed away with his loved ones, as well as actress Linda Gray and co-star Patrick Duffy, at his side.
