‘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)?

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.

Ellen Pompeo Rips Into ‘The Bachelor’ Creator And Defends Kelly Ripa For Her Comments

Things just got juicy from daytime to primetime after Kelly Ripa let her thoughts be known about the current ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown and the ‘Bachelor’ franchise during her morning show with Ryan Seacrest this week,

During a moment on the syndicated Live with Kelly and Ryan on Tuesday, Seacrest informed Ripa that the new ‘Bachelorette’ would be appearing on Thursday’s episode to which Ripa said: “You know how I feel about this show? It disgusts me. And I thought that I was disgusted because I couldn’t stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion. You know how we feel ladies! We are too special to be arguing over a guy.”  She also called the audience out for watching this “gross, gross, show.”

Following her sentiments, The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss took to his Twitter account as did host and EP, Chris Harrison.  Fleiss said, “Easy, Kelly Ripa.  The Bachelor franchise pays for your salary.”  While Harrison tweeted: “Look out @KellyRipa⁩ is coming after you and your ‘disgusting’ Monday night habit.”

Next, none other than Grey’s Anatomy franchise star, Ellen Pompeo joined the fray.  She tweeted in defense of Ripa.  Pompeo wrote: “Okay @fleissmeister… that’s some handle bro! Your show does NOT pay @KellyRipa salary. Also we don’t attack successful women on our network and men certainly cannot take credit for their success. Don’t get me started on your show cuz I’m a savage….

And in the end on Thursday’s installment of the entertainment talk show, Hannah Brown made her guest appearance and she weighed-in on the situation expressing that she didn’t follow the franchise at first, but being on the show has changed her mind. Ripa maintained her disgust for the series.

Brown went on to say to Ripa: “Like you, I didn’t really follow the show, wasn’t a big fan, but being part of the show, it’s not women fighting against each other.  Some of my best friends came from the show and were really supportive.”

So what do you think about what Ripa, Pompeo, Brown, Harrison and Fleiss had to share with each other on their Twitter war? Comment below.
