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 completely botch the last opportunity we had to see Hagman’s JR Ewing.

Besides the name of the show and the name of the characters, it doesn’t sound like this show has any connection to the original show (notice that Linda Evans, Joan Collins, etc. are not listed). This thing won’t last a year!!

The Shapiros and the network should wise up and give these poor actors a fighting chance: Write a brand NEW show where they can create brand NEW characters.

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.”

‘Dynasty’ Recasts and Departures Addressed By EP and CW President

On Sunday at the CW’s TCA Summer Press Tour, the changing and revolving door of cast changes was bantered about during the network’s executive session. As fans of the Dynasty reboot know, the role of Cristal has now been recast twice.

First, following Nathalie Kelley’s exit at the end of the first season, Ana Brenda Contreras took over the role for season 2, but now, as had been previously reported, she is being replaced by actress Daniella Alonso ahead of season 3.  Contreras was said to be leaving for personal reasons.

And if that was not confusing enough, there was the exit of James MacKay as Steven Carrington when back in November of 2018 he announced via his Instagram: “While Steven had a choice to leave, unfortunately I didn’t. There’s a lot of decisions involved in making television, and sometimes they just don’t go your way and you have to live with it.”  However, MacKay returned to the show on recurring status making a few appearances since that time.

Then, there was the exit of Nicollette Sheridan, who left for personal reasons as well, in the key role of Alexis Carrington and who was replaced by Elizabeth Gilles who apparently now is playing a dual role on the show that of Fallon and Alexis, but is she moving forward?  And then .. behind the scenes the original reboot showrunner Sallie Patrick made her exit to go into development ahead of season 2; where she was replaced by Josh Reims.

CW President Mark Pedowitz had this to say to the press about the cast departures: “We hoped (Ana Contreras) would continue but she had personal issues we had no control over.  There’s no dirt to be found.”  Pedowitz was dismissing a theory that there was a bigger underlining issue going on behind the scenes.

Dynasty executive producer Josh Schwartz added to Deadline:“Some (casting changes) were made for creative decisions, some were made for personal reasons, and just a confluence of things that happened in succession but it’s not part of a larger pattern. And on the showrunner front, Sallie ran the show for two seasons on a 22-episode model.  It was always her plan to pass the baton after a couple of seasons. Josh is an excellent and experienced showrunner.”

So, what do you think about all the casting changes at Dynasty and we are only at the start of the 3rd season.  Comment below.
