Sometimes reboots and remakes are not as good as the original…i might take a peak if i am really bored that night!

I’m looking forward to this new “Dynasty”. I’ve always liked Grant Show, and hopefully this reboot will be as much fun to watch as the original!

Not excited particularly – DYNASTY was fine in it’s day, I’m not certain that a re-make of it will work today.

Ugh. Why is a network doing this? I’m all for a well written good soap. However, trying to recreate a highly popular serial by recasting the parts with new actors likely will not work. I feel sorry for the actress who is cast as Alexis —- Imagine trying to compete with Joan Collins’ success in the role!! I thought the Dallas reboot was a flop. It had great potential and (thanks to Larry Hagman, Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy, etc) had a great connection to the past success. However, the writers had absolutely NO idea what to do with it and… Read more »

The original was too campy for my tastes — KNOTS LANDING will always be the gold standard for primetime soaps — but I’m willing to give this chance since Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, and Sallie Patrick are writing/producing.

I remember watching “Dynasty” as a little girl. In the 80’s, daytime and evening “soaps” spared no expense, as we were able to enter into a world of glitz and glamour. My favorite evening “soap” was Knots Landing. I enjoyed Dallas, too. I liked the Dallas remake and loved seeing a few of my favorites from the original back on-screen. Not sure I will watch the remake of Dynasty..

I never heard of Dynasty , but never seen it.
Just want say.
When people love a soap it’s because of the actors.
Without the original cast it no longer is Dynasty ..

There is going to be a lot of disapointment. It will not be Dynasty but a knock-off that will disapoint.

((MASH could never be brought back, either))

I was on the fence but Rafael de la Fuente? Now I’m in. And he’s playing a boyfriend of Steven’s? I hope he doesn’t come to he same fate as Steven’s first boyfriend on the original “Dynasty.”

Elizabeth Gillies First Post-‘Dynasty’ Role Revealed; GH Alum Bryan Craig Also In Cast

Now that the CW’s Dynasty has come to its conclusion after five seasons, many have wondered what series star Elizabeth Gillies (ex-Fallon) will be seen in next.  Part of the answer was revealed today in casting news via Deadline.

Gillies will star and is the co-executive producer of a new Tubi film called Spread.  In it, Liz will take on the role of  ambitious and aspiring journalist, who lands a temp job at an adult magazine run by an aging industry king played by Harvey Keitel.  The character must reconcile her idealism as she strives to help the company succeed.

Spread is written by Buffy Charlet, who is another of the films Co-EP’s, and is inspired by Charlet’s real-life experience as a temp at Hustler magazine who rose in the ranks to become an editor.

The film also stars two-time Daytime Emmy winner Bryan Craig (ex-General Hospital, Good Trouble).

Look for Spread to drop on Tubi in 2023.

So, intrigued to see Liz and Bryan in Tubi’s new film, ‘Spread’? Comment below.

DYNASTY Series Finale: A ‘False Face’ Revealed!

After five seasons, the final episode of CW’s Dynasty came to its conclusion on Friday night, but not before it delivered another soapy trope – a use of a prosthetic mask (sound familiar Days of our Lives fans?) to hide someone’s true identify.

Here’s what went down: After majordomo Graham (Dan Amboyer) had kidnapped Adam (Sam Underwood), in a shocker, Graham peels off his face! Yup, it was a prosthetic mask and reveals himself to be none other than Steven Carrington (James Mackay)!

After being kept away by Adam for years (he had hidden Steven in a sanitarium and then the place burned down), Steven finally figured out it was Adam who was pulling the strings of his disappearance. Next, came an all-out brawl; where instead of an opportunity to inject Adam with a syringe of some sort of concoction as payback, he almost killed his scheming half-brother. However, Steven didn’t want be a murderer, so he let Adam live to see another day, but told Adam to exile himself from the Carringtons and never return.

With that, and now masked again, Graham meets up with Sam (Rafael de La Fuente) at the hotel bar, where he eventually pulls off his mask to reveal himself as Steven. Kudos to de La Fuente in those scenes who gave us all the feels as Sam is reunited with the man he loves.

Still in another heart-tugger, Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) comes upon a man sitting at the piano at the Carringtons, and when he turns around, she sees its her brother, Steven.  The two, in typical CW Dynasty-style, break into song.  It was touchingly played by series star, Gillies along with Mackay. Elsewhere, Alexis and Blake (Grant Show) are trouncing through a horrific storm trying to find Dex. Ultimately, Alexis (Elaine Hendrix) and Dex (Pej Vahdat) reunite, and when a softened Blake returns home, he and Crystal (Daniella Alonso) vow to stay together and cement it with a kiss.

In addition, Amanda (Eliza Bennett) gets a job offer to return to London from her ex-lover, which puts her relationship with Kirby (Maddison Brown) in question.  Culhane (Robert Christopher Riley) told Sam that he’ll be moving to LA and selling his part of the hotel business they have together before he marries Nina.  Sam doesn’t take that news well and tries to ensure no one else will take Culhane’s half of their business partnership, because he likes working with him so much.  Meanwhile, the surrogate, Stacey Moore (Samantha Massell), delivers Fallon and Liam’s (Adam Huber) baby and they welcome their little girl to the dysfunction of the Carrington clan.

We are onto the final moments via a six-month time jump and the trajectory of the Carringtons and their extended family become known. Sam presides over Culhane’s wedding to Nina (Felisha Terrell), Liam has written children’s books after his baby girl, while Jeff (Sam Adegoke) is setting up ColbyCo’s new headquarters in Africa, specifically, Nigeria. Fallon had decided to rebrand her company Carrington United, much to the delight of her father.  Dominique (Michael Michele) and Alexis are both opening stores right across from each other on Bleecker Street in Manhattan, and it looks as if they will continue their ongoing catfights in the Big Apple. Kirby decides to move to London to be with Amanda.

And … in the ‘payback is a bitch’ column, we see Adam with an English accent working as a veterinarian … taking care of cats! The final moment of the series features a snapshot of the Carringtons during a family photo gathering.

So, what did you think of the season finale of ‘Dynasty’? Let us know in the comment section below. But, first watch a BTS moment with James Mackay and Liz Gillies singing a familiar tune on her Instagram, posted after last night’s finale aired.

TONIGHT: ‘Dynasty’ Concludes With Its Series Finale

After five seasons, CW’s reboot of ABC’s 80’s primetime soap, Dynasty, will airs its final episode tonight on Friday, September 16th (9pm ET/8pm CT).

Before its goes off the air, in story, look for: a new majordomo beginning to work at the manor who piques the interest of the Carringtons, while Blake (Grant Show) and Cristal (Daniella Alonso) disagree on how to handle recent events at PPA, causing more strain between the two. The unlikely duo of Blake and Alexis (Elaine Hendrix) go on a search and rescue mission.

Elsewhere, Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) and Liam (Adam Huber) run through a practice labor and delivery. Jeff (Sam Adegoke) is put in a precarious position, one that could potentially change his future radically. Fallon is challenged by the FSN board and Dominique (Michael Michele) offers to help. Sam (Rafael de la Fuente) does not accept Culhane’s (Robert C. Riley) business choices and tries to sabotage Culhane’s plan. Amanda (Eliza Bennett) is presented an amazing opportunity which leaves Kirby (Maddison Brown) questioning the future, while Adam (Sam Underwood) can’t seem to scheme his way out of his new mess.

For those who did not catch the 5th and final season, you are in luck!. The entire season will be available and streaming worldwide on Hulu, beginning on September 24th.

Lead by the incredible performances of Elizabeth Gillies as Fallon, the series just never caught on, or properly promoted by the CW.  However, viewers who did partake in watching the episodes, and stayed with it for five seasons, knew that this was actually a diamond-in-the-rough series or shall we say, a soap on steroids which brought the drama and poked great fun at itself all at the same time.

So, will you be checking out the ‘Dynasty’ series finale tonight? Sad to see it go? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
