When one show rises, another falls. Deadline reports The CW has given a full season order to freshman series Dynasty but not to Valor.
A reboot of the 1980s primetime soap, Dynasty centers on the wealthy Carrington family and the energy empire they must defend against the Colbys and other adversaries. The cast includes Grant Show, Alan Dale, Elizabeth Gillies, Nathalie Kelley, James Mackay, Sam Adegoke, Robert Christopher Riley, Rafael de la Fuente, Brianna Brown, and Nick Wechsler.
The CW has ordered nine additional episodes for the first season of Dynasty, bringing their total to 22 episodes. However, the same does not go for the low-rated military drama Valor.
Even though The CW has not officially cancelled the freshman series, the lack of a full season order is not good news. The show’s low average rating of .24 in the 18-49 demo and poor viewership turnout at 1.027 million indicates Valor might be headed for cancellation.
However, as The CW did for No Tomorrow and Frequency, the network will wait to see how Valor performs on Netflix before they make a decision in the spring.
What do you think? Are you watching Dynasty and/or Valor? Do you think Valor should be renewed?
