‘Dynasty’ Season Two Key Art Unveiled Featuring The ‘Real’ Cristal

When season two of the CW reboot of Dynasty begins, as previously noted, there will be a new Cristal Carrington!

On the season one finale, Cristal played by Nathalie Kelley was both shot in the stomach and then trapped in an inferno!

Viewers were informed by Kelley herself back in June that she was not returning to the show.

As it turns out, when season 2 kicks-off, the real Cristal will be in the mix when Anna-Brenda Contreras makes her debut.

The CW series released new key art today for season 2 with the slogan: “Where there’s a will, there’s a war.”  Main cast members: Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon) Nicollette Sheridan (Alexis), Grant Show (Blake) and Contreras are featured.

So, what will you be checking out the new season of Dynasty when it debuts on Friday, October 12th (8PMEST/7PMXCST)?

I heard it’s soap. So, I watch 2 episodes and it’s beyond Phony Junk lol..

Soaps are campy and at times lame, but that Dynasty is really bad.

No way can I force myself to get into Dynasty’..
But for whoever sees it as being good, enjoy 🙂

I may be missing something, but I don’t understand what you mean by the “real Cristal.”

Finally, in another thread (re: Paul Davidson), I have been chatting with others here about the disrespect shown for older actors (aka veterans) in favor of younger players, in an attempt to save money and/or target the younger demographic. This Dynasty reboot has not only jumbled race/ethnicity/gender of characters from the original series, it is also making these iconic characters much younger, again evidently starkly appealing to the younger demographic. It’s just an observation…but I would also point out that, once upon a time, series with older actors were hugely successful, such as Golden Girls, Murder She Wrote, and Matlock. So it can be done…

Bottom line for me: I am enjoying the Dynasty reboot and look forward to enjoying season 2!

Cristal in S1 was revealed to be a fraud.

Thanks for your reply, Ryan. Somehow I must have missed that plot point.

hi Jamesj75,
the coveted target demo are generally composed of the desirable younger —
Young adult viewers have been TV’s target demographic for decades, because they’re thought to have less brand loyalty and more disposable income.
In television, most key demographic groups consist of adults who are somewhere in age between 18 and 49.
So, are the ages of actors they want to see and who they relate to.

And the times move on…

Thanks for your reply, su000! I realize your points are all valid and well delineated. I just believe there is room for everyone in the tent: young, old, and in between!

Yep. I’ll be watching. Perplexed by this “real Cristal” twist so we’ll see how it plays out and then make my call. However, the writers have their work cut out for them. I liked Nathalie’s Cristal. Bringing in a new actress and not going the old plastic surgery route is unusual. I’ll give them credit for skipping that old plot device. But from what I read this new casting is a lot more complex. Good luck to all.

Broadway Legend Carol Channing Dies At 97; B&B Remembers Her Time On The Soap

The beloved and iconic star Carol Channing has passed away at age 97.  Best known for her performance as Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly, the Tony Award-winning actress also picked up a Golden Globe for her role in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and was nominated for an Academy Award for it as well, throughout her enduring career.

Reports on Tuesday detail that Channing died at her home in Rancho Mirage, California, of natural causes.

While Channing did so much in her illustrious career, she also appeared as herself back in 1993 on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.  That’s when the Forresters staged a celebrity-filled fashion show with plenty of glitz.

In a tweet with a photo of B&B’s enduring star, John McCook (Eric Forrester) pictured with Channing, the daytime drama shared: “All of us at mourn the loss of our friend, the legendary star, . She was a true original and there will never be anyone like her. Ms. Channing appeared as herself on B&B in 1993. May she rest in peace.”

Channing’s performance as a diamond-loving showgirl, Lorelei Lee, in the Broadway musical Gentleman Prefer Blondes back in 1949 made her a star.  Marilyn Monroe would play the role in the film adaptation.

Later in her TV career, she appeared on numerous shows including: Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, The Love Boat, Touched by an Angel and several game shows, to name just a few.
