Some changes behind the scenes for CW’s Dynasty as it enters its upcoming 3rd season.

According to Deadline. Sallie Patrick, who developed the reboot of the primetime soap with Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, has stepped down as the series showrunner.

In her place will be Josh Reims, who joined Dynasty as co-executive producer at the start of season 2.

Reims, has major primetime soap cred.  He served as executive producer on ABC’s Mistresses and Dirty Sexy Money and as consulting producer on ABC’s Brothers & Sisters and the CW’s Jane the Virgin.

Patrick, will remain an EP of Dynasty, but will now focus on development for CBS Studios.  She posted a message on her Instagram about moving on, noting: “While I’m excited to move on to my next challenge, it’s of course hard to part with a world I put so much love into, from first pitch to this 44th ep, but I’m so pleased with the team carrying it forward.”

So, what do you think about Josh Reims being named the new showrunner for Dynasty season three? Comment below

Yes, ERASE viewers memory with the flash-gadget that the “Men in Black” have and redo the show from the beginning with new writers and creators.

The whole storyline with Adam is so far fetched and enough to make me stop watching the show

Well I’d say that the new crazy-Adam is what makes the show interesting and his upcoming clash with Fallon. Everything else sucks…

Wasn’t Adams finger cut off when he was kidnapped as a baby according to last season fake Adams story ?

That was explained on season 2. Adam’s finger was never cut off. The kidnappers sent the Carringtons a finger from a cadaver…

Where do I begin? So many missed opportunities. The season 1 finale was amazing. When season 2 began they barely addressed it and instead handled it with silliness. (dropping Celia’s ashes on the foyer floor) Alexis’ face was shoved into a fire and she doesn’t even try to tell anyone. Really? And then the ridiculous season finale with only a couple redeeming moments. They need to focus on the drama, build the tension and then make the big reveal. The best episode of the season was Alexis shooting Cristal’s x-boyfriend on the horse, and that even was wasted and resolved way too quickly! The best cliffhanger of season 2 is whether a new showrunner can make Dynasty more watchable.

I agree, this is why the current showrunner stepped down, Sallie Patrick. To be honest I have NO IDEA how she became a showrunner since just a few years ago she was a Photoshop artist at Lucasfilms.
YES, they need to focus on the drama because DRAMA exists since the beginning of time and always sells, whether in true life or fiction. Alexis’ face being shoved into a fire was quite interesting, but she never tells anyone about it, because most likely they had decided to write her off the show. Nicolette said she needed to leave the show because her mom was dying and wanted to spend time with her. Possibly true. But Nicolette was written off “Desp. Housewives” for holding up the entire crew for over 2 hours arriving late and having not memorized her lines, which led Marc Cherri to give her a small slap on her neck (and then she sued him for it). And the plastic surgery of Alexis & the so quick recovery having Fallon’s face was way too over the top. They should keep her in bandages till season 3 when they find an actress that looks like Nicolette. The best plastic surgeon in the world can never make you look 22yo.
I am a bit upset with the creators for chopping off Bill Conti’s masterpiece Dynasty intro music into a 20 second soundbite. It is LAME thing to do, shows total disrespect to original creators!

Adam’s and Fallon’s upcoming clash will be interesting. But, ENOUGH of Sammy Joe He is boring as hell just dragging along. Nicollete as Alexis was awful. She looked really bored saying her lines (she was written off “Desp. Housewives” for showing up over 2 hours late and had not memorized her lines). I can’t wait to see Alexis version 2.0 and Krystal 3.0 (although version 2.0 Ana Brenda Contreras was great and now there will be Crystal no.3 Daniella Alonso??? OMG! Good Heavens! This is a DEADLY recipe for a show…). What are they? Fembots to upgrade their software and replace them? We still have not seen Claudia lithging up candles and naming them after each Carrington and setting La Mirage on fire Or how about the MOLDAVIA MASSACRE? I’ve seen all 2 seasons, all episodes out of curiosity, since I never missed one episode of the orig. DYNASTY. You guys took a really GREAT show and totally trashed it. The original shows was a big HIT in the 80’s so it might not be a big hit today, but the reboot you created is quite mediocre, and the ratings proved it. You better advise Sallie Patrick to sell her $5 million dollar home she bought last year, thinking the show will be a hit, and stop posting nonsense in social media, because she was demoted. The show will be lucky to have a 4th season, in my opinion. And since it is not on syndication (any show must reach at least 100 episodes to become syndicated) WHY are you showing it in so many countries? My friends are in Germany and are big original DYNASTY fans, well… after 6 episodes of the reboot they just don’t care seeing it anymore. That’s the news from Germany. and one more last thing; .. WHY did you chop off Bill Conti’s masterpiece Dynasty intro music into a 20 second soundbite? LAME thing to do, shows total disrespect to original creators!

Hartley and Stause tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Malibu’s Calamigos Ranch back in October 28th, 201, which was four years to the day after they met.

As daytime fans know, Justin and Chrishell met when they were both part of the soap opera community.  Justin was last on daytime as Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless.  Hartley has one child, Isabella, from a previous marriage to another soap actress, Lindsay Korman, who he met when they both were on the defunct NBC soap Passions. Justin and Lindsay were married for 8 years.
