Season Premiere Friday, October 12 at 8 PM ET/PT on The CW
On the season premiere episode, “Twenty-Three Skidoo,” on the eve of Carrington Atlantic's 100th anniversary, our splintered family struggles to rise from the ashes to redefine themselves as past mistakes emerge, new alliances are forged, and the fate of the Carringtons' legacy falls squarely on Fallon's (Elizabeth Gillies) shoulders. Grant Show, Nicollette Sheridan, Rafael de la Fuente, James Mackay, Robert Christopher Riley, Sam Adegoke, Ana Brenda Contreras, Alan Dale and Maddison Brown also star.
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 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, summons Fallon and her brother, Steven, 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.
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, as well as Fallon, who all make it very clear Cristal doesn’t belong.
