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.

The reboot stars Grant Show, Elizabeth Gillies, Nathalie Kelley, James Mackay, Alan Dale, Sam Adegoke, Robert Christopher Riley and Rafael de la Fuente).

There’s no word yet on how many episodes “Dynasty’s” first season will run for. This marks CW’s first new series pickup of the season, though it has renewed nearly all of its returning series.
