In an upcoming season potentially featuring more revivals than ever before, The CW has officially greenlit its new version of classic serialized drama “Dynasty.” From the duo behind “Gossip Girl,” Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, “Dynasty” features two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. The series will be told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds: Fallon Carrington, daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington, and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal, a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class.

The cast includes Elizabeth Gillies (“Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll”), Grant Show (“Melrose Place”), Nathalie Kelley (“The Vampire Diaries”), James Mackay (“The Leftovers”), Alan Dale (“The O.C.”), Sam Adegoke (“Murder in the First”), Robert Christopher Riley (“Hit the Floor”), and Rafael de la Fuente “(“Empire”).

“Dynasty” is now the third upcoming new drama on The CW, joining “Black Lightning” and “Life Sentence.”

  1. This is actually one of the reboots I’m excited about because I was a fan of the original and I like the way the Dallas reboot was done on TNT from a few years ago. I’m familiar with CW shows so even if its more like a CW soap I can deal with it but keep the campiness in!

    The reboots lately have been good ones like Battle of the Network Stars at the end of next month, Will & Grace, and Roseanne.

  2. I’m excited for Dynasty I’ll be watching the plot to see if it was any good or not. I was too young for the original when that was on in the 80’s.

    • Me too Dynasty is one of the new programs I’m going to watch as I really liked the Dallas reboot so I’m willing to see this get revived. I think a lot of people who were too young to see the original should get into this one because Dynasty is one of the best dramas of all-time.
