Late actor Larry Hagman will feature in the upcoming new season of Tv hit Dallas when producers use old footage of his iconic character J.R. Ewing.

The revered actor passed away in November, 2012 after a battle with cancer, and bosses of the revamped drama series killed off his backstabbing oil baron character in a dramatic plot during the show's 2013 run.

Now it has emerged Hagman will once again be seen by viewers in his most famous role when previously unused footage is broadcast during the new season of Dallas, which is due to launch in the U.S. in February (14).
