Dallas exec producers Cynthia Cidre and Michael M. Robin have admitted defeat in the bid to #SaveDallas.
Following a huge fan campaign and extensive negotiations to find the cancelled TNT soap a new home for Season 4, the pair posted a statement on Dallas Decoder admitting that efforts to escape the cancellation graveyard have ended:
Well, we have come to the end. After a 6-week attempt to try and land our beloved “Dallas” at another network, we have to inform you that we have not succeeded. Warner Horizon has attempted, in a Herculean way, to try and find us a new home, but at the end of the day it did not work out.
We so appreciate the outpouring of support by all of you, and the #SaveDallas campaign was a truly remarkable undertaking. We cannot fully express how much we loved making this show for you and with you. We had 3 wonderful years together, and we had the times of our lives bringing this iconic show back to television. Thank you for your support; thank you for your loyalty to our wonderful characters; and thank you for watching our show.
We wish you all our very best, and thank you again for loving “Dallas.”
With great admiration and appreciation,
Cynthia Cidre and Michael Robin
The rebooted Dallas ran for three seasons on TNT before cancellation on October 3, 2014 .
