NEW YORK (AP) — The Ewings are forever battling each other, and viewers clearly love them.

TNT network says "Dallas" has been renewed for a 15-episode second season. The network announced Friday it will air in 2013.

Following the lives of J.R., Bobby and Sue Ellen Ewing, as well as the rest of the fractious clan, "Dallas" was revived earlier this month after decades off the air. It is averaging 6.9 million viewers in this, its first season.

"Dallas" brings back original cast members Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray, who are joined by Southfork newcomers including Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster and Julie Gonzalo.

The series was initially broadcast by CBS from 1978 to 1991.
