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.”

That is when actress Laura Leighton will guest star in the role of Corinne Simon, an SEC officer with who has some business dealings and bombshells for the Carringtons.

Leighton previously played Sydney on the popular 90’s primetime soap, Melrose Place and was the on-screen neighbor of Show’s, Jake.

And as fans know, Laura is also married to former Melrose Place star, Doug Savant (Ex-Matt). The duo have been together since 1998.

Now check out this teaser for tonight’s all-new episode of Dynasty (9 p.m. EST) below.

TONIGHT: ‘Dynasty’ Season Four Premiere

Truly one of the most entertaining TV show’s is back tonight with the return of CW’s witty, lusty, twisty, and oh-so-soapy, Dynasty!

The fourth season has a 21-episode order and will air in its Friday night slot beginning tonight at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.

In story, and in tonight’s season opener entitled “That Unfortunate Dinner”: Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) and Liam (Adam Huber) plan their wedding, with some unsolicited input from Alexis (Elaine Hendrix), which leaves Fallon questioning if Alexis could be right.

 

Meanwhile, Alexis and Jeff (Sam Adegoke) have a photo shoot to announce their new ‘power couple’ status.  While, Dominique (Michael Michele) runs into hiccups with her new fashion line and turns to unexpected sources for help. Blake (Grant Show) is determined to work on his relationship with Cristal (Daniella Alonso) and Culhane (Robert C. Riley) advises Sam (Rafael De La Fuente) on his current state of affairs.  That’s not all!  Anders (Alan Dale) does some digging and is shocked by what he finds and Adam’s (Sam Underwood) confession to Kirby (Maddison Brown) is met with surprising results.

The CW released this clip ahead of tonight’s episode where just as Liam and Fallon toast to their “drama-free” next chapter, a clumsy waiter messes up the photo right through Liam’s face with a bottle of champagne, as Liam’s disdainful mother (Sharon Lawrence) arrives on the scene.

Check out the clip below and let us know if you are looking forward to Dynasty’s return via the comment section.
