Nearly 30 years after “Dynasty” aired its last hair-pulling fight, the ’80s prime-time soap opera is returning to TV.
CW announced on Thursday that the reboot will be one of four new shows joining the network’s schedule in the 2017-18 season. According to CW executives, the “Dynasty” remake will put a fresh twist on the series for a new generation of viewers.
Joan Collins and Linda Evans originally starred in “Dynasty” as dueling divas.
CW president Mark Pedowitz also revealed that the network is open to include original cast members. However, the decision will ultimately be up to the new show’s producers.
“Dynasty” will debut in the fall, along with the freshman military drama “Valor.” Mid-season additions to the CW lineup will include the comedy “Life Sentence,” as well as the DC Comics-based “Black Lightning.”
