Dynasty Renewed For Second Season By The CW!

While the ratings have been less than stellar, but with a move to Friday night’s and the addition of Nicollette Sheridan as Alexis Carrington which saw an uptick, the CW announced it has officially renewed Dynasty for a second season!

According to Deadline on the surprise renewal: “The reboot of the classic 1980s soap has a lucrative distribution deal with Netflix for CBS TV Studios, whose parent CBS co-owns the CW. Additionally, the CW brass hope that the arrival of Nicollette Sheridan as Alexis Carrington would provide the spark that Joan Collins delivered when she joined the original series as Alexis in Season 2.”

The CW also renewed Riverdale, Jane the Virgin, The Flash, Arrow and Supernatural among others.

This version of Dynasty is like a bad cartoon. The one good thing they have is Alan Dale as Anders.

The “real” Dynasty was great-full of 80’s soapy goodness! I haven’t checked out this version, and I don’t plan on it. We had Dynasty, Dallas, and Knots Landing in the 80’s-such great drama!

Linda, I am with you on both counts. I had never watched anything on CW until Riverdale premiered. Both shows are enjoyable.

Hooray! I’m surprised and pleased. The writing (especially some of the one-liners) is smart, campy, and fun. This show is my guilty pleasure.

Joan Collins, the original Alexis Carrington, came in with incoming writers Eileen and Robert Mason Pollock. No such luck for Nicolette Sheridan. She is good, but the show is crap.

I’m happy. It’s not the old Dynasty that I loved, but there are a number of familiar elements and a lot of newer ones that keep me tuning in. Glad it’ll be around for another season.

Cannot believe this decision based on the anemic ratings. The CW though does give its series a chance, more than other outlets. (And a sweet distribution deal helps.) This DYNASTYreally is less a reboot than a new soap using familiar names and relationships. It is not especially memorable but it is naughty frothy fun. Maybe producers will tweak some with the opportunity of a secure future. I miss the slow builds those 1980s primetime soaps had. Now it seems every episode has to have an over-the-top moment or quickly resolved arc. (Thanks EMPIRE!) Wonder where the show will land. I… Read more »

Actually this IS a reboot! This is where it is important to understand the difference between a reboot and a revival! A revival is a continuation of some sort from the original ala 90210 and Melrose Place! A reboot is a reinvention of the original using the same concept and hitting the reset button. It is a new way of telling the old story. Keep in mind Dynasty has NEVER been a classy show. It has always been a trashy larger than life drama! It has always been a guilty pleasure with over the top stories and scenery chewing characters.… Read more »

Ratings are irrelevant when a show has a lucrative streaming deal that allows for worldwide distribution with a same-day window, similar to that of Riverdale.

That will, at the very least, guarantee Dynasty two season tops. And yeah, I share your hope that the reboot will make needed tweaks.

When Dallas did their reboot a few years back, they did it the right way…. they brought back JR, Bobby, and Sue Ellen, but their grown kids were introduced as primary characters. The idea -in the long term – was to pass the torch off to the kids entirely. It only went wrong when Larry Hagman passed away, and even with the new characters, the show wasn’t ready to function without the presence of JR Ewing. (This should be a lesson to critics of another show who are constantly demanding the lead character be written off) Had Larry & JR… Read more »

Dallas was a great reboot-done in an honorable way which paid homage and respect to the original series. The acting and storylines were great! I can’t believe it was cancelled! I loved it! Strange to think that Larry is gone-what an icon!

Dallas was a revival because it continued on the same storyline! Dynasty is reboot because while it used the same characters it retold the story in a different way. They are two totally different concepts! The creators of the original Dynasty work on this one as well. There goal was a reboot aka a retelling NOT a revival aka continuation! They have in fact done what was expected! If you want the original story check it out on The CW seed app!

I think the show has a chance to improve its ratings now that Nicolette has joined the cast. The original wasn’t a hit until the second season when Joan Collins joined the cast.

General Hospital and Dynasty Star, Emma Samms Shares Her Battle With “Long Covid”

While General Hospital fans have been curious to find out just what is the true fate of Holly Sutton who is believed to have died, sending Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) on a mission to find out just what had happened to her, Sutton’s portrayer, Emma Samms has been going through her own difficult time since testing positive for the coronavirus back in March in the U.K.

Samms was never hospitalized for her symptoms related to the virus, but according to a report and interview with The Times, she has been suffering from long bouts of tremendous fatigue, where even small tasks like talking on the phone or doing gardening have become difficult for her.

Emma revealed, “This panic-inducing level of fatigue has been less startling and immensely compromising … and it fluctuates. I improve slightly, have a couple of good days, and assume I am on the road to recovery, only to go right back to feeling horrendous.”

The popular actress has a condition currently called “Long Covid”.  However, researchers and doctors  who are working closely on COVID-19 are still unsure why certain people have been unable to recover, nor how to treat the condition, which mimics Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

The actress who first became soap famous for GH, later appeared on the original ABC version of Dynasty as Fallon Carrington.

Send your thoughts and well-wishes to Emma during this difficult time, as we know many General Hospital fans would love to see her back on the ABC daytime drama series as a very much alive, Holly.  Comment below.

How B&B & ‘Dynasty’ Showrunners Are Being Creative To Keep Sex & Intimacy Alive In The Soap Genre Amidst COVID-19

In one of the more entertaining but true titles of an article in the New York Times, “How to Shoot a Sex Scene in a Pandemic: Cue the Mannequins” several series executive producers and showrunners participated and related how they are coming up with ways to exist in a COVID-19 world, but need to keep the love stories, and intimate moments still look alluring for its viewership, especially those bonafide soaps.

At the forefront remains The Bold and the Beautiful and its executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell.  BOLD has returned to making new episodes and as noted today, will be airing all-new episodes come July 20th.

In the NY Times piece, Bell shared on making the love scenes work:  “At first, we took out the love scenes, and the show was falling a little flat because we’re all about romance and family interactions. One of the first ideas we had was to bring in mannequins for the intimate scenes and hospital scenes, and it’s working quite well — we’re shooting it from a great distance or in a way you can’t see the form is inanimate.”

When asked how his cast is handling the transition to lifeless stand-ins, he shared.  “We’ve had a lot of strange looks and questions like, Do you really want to do this? But everyone is game. They are getting their first latex kiss.”

Another soap, CW’s Dynasty, who had to wrap its 3rd season much earlier than they had hoped, without the wedding of Fallon and Liam due to COVID-19, is figuring out how their over-the-top sexy sudsy show might look when it returns.

Showrunner, Josh Reims shared with the Times: “Phone sex has certainly come up a lot. I was looking through the first episode written before all this, and basically removed everything that said, ‘And then they kiss.’”

Reims noted: “The joke among the writers is that we will watch two characters say they want to have sex and then cut to them saying, ‘That was some great sex.’”

It is Reims true hople that when Dynasty returns next spring in 2021, that the effects of COVID-19 will not be felt or will have at least subsided, adding “No one is watching ‘Dynasty’ to be reminded of a pandemic.”

So, looks like soaps are leading the charge to get you back to enjoying love in the afternoon or the evening? Comment below.
