Could longtime favorite Victoria Principal be making a return to Dallas? A recent interview with star Jesse Metcalfe (Christopher) indicates it might be a possibility.
When Principal left the role of Pamela Barnes Ewing in 1987, producers at the time decided to leave the door wide open for the actress to return to the series at a later date, without having to do a convoluted story similar to the “dream” season in order to bring her back. Unfortunately this left a bad taste in a lot of fan’s mouth’s as Pam abandoning her family never really rang true. Now 26 years later, might Principal return to the show that made her a household name?
Dallas‘ Jesse Metcalfe sat down with TVGuide and discussed some of the upcoming stories and brought up the actress while previewing what’s to come. “As we peel back the layers of the onion, a lot of things come to light. J.R. was attempting to set something in motion, and that involved Pam. I can’t reveal more, but I’m excited about the possibility of Victoria Principal coming back to the show.”
My Take: Personally I would be over the moon if Pam came back. In all honesty I would even be okay if it was just a short guest stint in order to wrap everything up and pay tribute to the shows long-term fans. But her absence has left some pretty big plot holes, and I’d love to have those wrapped up and be able to move into season 3 guns blazing and make Dallas must-see TV again.
