The 'Dynasty' Reboot Is Happening...Officially!
We've been following the reboot of Dynasty since it was teased to be in development, on through to its pilot order.
And now, the CW has officially announced that Dynasty has been picked up for the 2017-18 season!
The CW is looking to return to the primetime soap arena in a big way with Dynasty, a reboot of the iconic 1980s soap from Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage and CBS TV Studios and Fake Empire.
In their return to the CW, Schwartz and Savage teamed with Revenge writer-producer Sallie Patrick and the original series’ creators, husband-and-wife duo Esther Shapiro & Richard Shapiro, for a new modern-day reboot of the classic Aaron Spelling-produced ABC series.
Co-written by Schwartz & Savage and Patrick , the new Dynasty stars Grant Show (Melrose Place), Elizabeth Gillies (Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll), 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).
It follows 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.
