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.

So, glad to hear more CW Dynasty is on the way? Comment below!

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.

Campy! Exactly! Finally someone who understands the concept!

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.
