In the 1980s, the American television nighttime soap opera, “Dynasty”, was very popular. The saga of a strife between two families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, captivated the nation. Now the The CW network is hoping people will be equally as interested in the drama today. A new pilot for a reboot of the show has been picked up by the network. “Gossip Girl” producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage have signed onto the project for the broadcast season of 2017-2018.

Premiere Date?

No premiere date has been announced for the reworked and modernized version of the show. The new show will again pit the rival families against each other. New cast members include Elizabeth Gillies (Sex & Drugs & Rock& Roll) as the promiscuous and feisty Fallon Carrington. In the original show, Fallon was played by Pamela Sue Martin.

The reboot of the iconic drama will also feature Nathalie Kelly (The Vampire Diaries) who will play Fallon’s step-mom, Cristal. Carrington patriarch, Blake Carrington, will be played by Grant Snow (Melrose Place), Steven Carrington will be played by James Mackay (The Leftovers) and Sam will be played by Rafael de la Fuente (Empire).

The original primetime soap opera ran from January 12, 1981 through May 11, 1989. It was produced by Aaron Spelling and was considered to be similar to the other primetime American soap opera, “Dallas”, which aired at around the same time. “Dynasty” was set in Denver, Colorado. Both shows chronicled the life and times of the very wealthy.

Dynasty” did not have a great season one but by 1982 it had risen to be one of the top ten television shows in the United States. It enjoyed the top spot in the ratings by 1985. Interest in the dramatic series declined over the next few years but a reunion miniseries was done in 1991.
