    Series Premiere - Tuesday, October 10th at 9pm ET/8pm CT

    Dynasty on The CW

    Wealth, power, deception, and double-dealing...what does it take to build a dynasty? A modern re-imagining of the iconic primetime soap, centering on the powerful Carrington family as they defend their throne against the Colbys, new rivals and threats, and even each other.

    Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies) is charismatic, cunning and poised to become the new COO of her father's global energy empire – or so she thinks. When her father, Blake Carrington, (Grant Show) summons Fallon and her brother, Steven (James Mackay), home to the family compound in Atlanta, Fallon is horrified to learn that the reunion isn't to announce her promotion – but rather to make the acquaintance of stepmother-to-be, Cristal (Nathalie Kelley). Cristal is stunning – and almost as young as Fallon, as Fallon is quick to point out – but she isn't just some flimsy gold-digger to be scared off. Cristal is driven, principled, a savvy publicity maven at Carrington Atlantic, and she truly loves Blake. However, the wealth and privilege of the Carringtons' world proves challenging to her, as she clashes with the staff, including Blake's butler, Anders (Alan Dale), as well as Fallon, who all make it very clear Cristal doesn’t belong.

    Family dynasties flow through blood, and Fallon would sooner draw blood than call Cristal "Mom." Fallon asks Culhane (Robert Christopher Riley), the family's chauffeur – and Fallon's secret lover – to help expose Cristal for the fraud Fallon thinks she is. But when that backfires, and Blake chooses Cristal over his own daughter, Fallon sides up to Blake's biggest rival, Jeff Colby (Sam Adegoke), mixing business and pleasure to seek her revenge...leaving a jealous Culhane to watch from the sidelines. While the Carringtons' rocky relationships prove the theory that family sticks together no matter what, Cristal is reminded of exactly that when her nephew, Sammy Jo (Rafael de la Fuente), arrives with a suitcase full of secrets from Cristal's past. Now Cristal's carefully concealed history could bring her future crashing down – and who knows who she might take down with her.

    DYNASTY stars Elizabeth Gillies (Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll), Nathalie Kelley (Unreal, The Vampire Diaries), James Mackay (The Leftovers), Sam Adegoke (Murder in the First), Robert Christopher Riley (Hit the Floor) and Rafael de la Fuente (Empire), with Alan Dale (The O.C.), and Grant Show (Melrose Place). DYNASTY is from CBS Television Studios in association with Fake Empire, with executive producers Josh Schwartz (Gossip Girl), Stephanie Savage (Gossip Girl), Sallie Patrick (Revenge), Esther and Richard Shapiro (the creators of the original Dynasty) and Brad Silberling (Jane The Virgin).


    CREDITS FOR "DYNASTY" ON THE CW

    Day and time: Wednesday, 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET
    Network debut: October 11, 2017

    Format: The Rolls Royce of all primetime soaps, returns in a modernized reboot that follows 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. In an age where dynasties appear everywhere -- from reality TV to the polling booths -- this epic drama features the one percent in all its glitz and gloss, while exposing the dark underbelly: a corrupt world built on backroom deals, betrayal, and, in some cases, murder.
