Dynasty is making a comeback. Deadline reports The CW has ordered a reboot of the classic ’80s TV series.
The original ABC soap centered on the Carringtons, a wealthy family from Denver, Colorado. The cast included John Forsythe, Linda Evans, Joan Collins, John James, and Gordon Thomson. The show ran for nine seasons before ending in 1989.
The The CW reboot comes from Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. It will follow “two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. The series will be told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds: Fallon Carrington, daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington, and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal, a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class.”
