Joan CollinsEarlier this year the much-vaunted 'Dallas' reboot became a reality. Now, in news to gladden the hearts of fans of shoulder-pads, sequins and shoving matches everywhere, Joan Collins has said that she'd love to return to TV for a second round of 'Dynasty,' should the opportunity arise.

And that's not all. She reportedly let slip that there may even be a script in place. According to 'The Sun,' Collins said she's been in "constant contact" with 'Dynasty' creator Esther Shapiro, "and apparently they've written a script."

But, Collins added, "I can't tell you anything about it -- it's top, top secret. ... I would love to be Alexis again because it was a great role."

The 'Dallas' cast, Larry Hagman, Linda Gray, and Patrick Duffy - Duffy spoke about the reunion on 'The Talk' Patrick Duffy called 'Dallas' "the gift that keeps on giving" Tuesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). That's thanks to TNT's reboot of the series, which was originally canceled in 1991, starring Duffy, Larry Hagman, and Linda Gray. The three actors played the mainstays of the Ewing clan for 13 years, and became household names in the process.

Duffy described stepping back into the role of Bobby Ewing as "a real time warp situation," feeling as if no time had passed since the last time he was on the 'Dallas' set. "I haven't been Bobby for twenty years and Larry and Linda and I stepped back into the wardrobe, back on the set at the ranch, and it was as if we had been on our three-month hiatus and we were back at work," he said.

The major difference comes up, he said, when he looks in the mirror and realizes twenty years have indeed passed. "You have to talk louder to Larry now," he yelled, joking. Season one is already in production, and debuts in the summer of 2012.

'Dallas' reboot is a go! TNT has picked up the series.

"TNT has explored the possibility of an updated version of 'Dallas' for several years, but it wasn't until we read Cynthia Cidre's outstanding pilot script that we knew we had the foundation for a great new series," Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM), said in a statement. "It is incredibly exciting to see both new and familiar characters in the hands of a dream cast under the guidance of the enormously talented Cidre and Mike Robin. We couldn't be more pleased with how 'Dallas' has come together."

Josh HendersonMaybe in the end it will all turn out to have been nothing but a weird dream, but for now it looks like it's time to dust off those sequinned shoulder pads and get ready for The Oil Barons' Ball: The much-hyped 'Dallas' reboot is a "Go."

With new casting updates comes news that the rebooted 'Dallas' will contain some classic elements: Love triangles, betrayals, family clashes and, finally, Mr. J.R. Ewing himself.

According to deadline.com, 'Desperate Housewives' alum Josh Henderson has signed on to play J.R. and Su Ellen's son, John Ross. Producers say that the new drama will focus on the next generation of the Ewing dynasty as they squabble over power, money and women.
