In the wake of Larry Hagman's recent death, TNT's "Dallas" has been working to give the actor -- and his iconic character, J.R. Ewing -- a proper send-off.

According to TV Line, J.R.'s on-screen funeral will take place during the eighth episode of Season 2, to air March 11, and is rumored to feature a number of returning "Dallas" alums, including those who have not yet made appearances on the TNT update. Former stars who were already confirmed to reappear this season include Ted Shackelford and Joan Van Ark.

Though Hagman had filmed six out of the fifteen episodes ordered for Season 2, producers were reportedly caught off-guard by the actor's passing, and subsequently reworked the season's plot to reflect the situation.

Hagman, who was best known for his roles on "Dallas" and starring opposite Barbara Eden in "I Dream of Jeannie," was diagnosed with cancer over a year ago, but continued to work on the TNT series during his treatment. He died on November 23 at age 81.

"Dallas" returns for its second season starting Jan. 28 at 9 p.m. EST on TNT.
