In its original ’80s incarnation, Dynasty was the epitome of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, yet the Carrington family’s defining characteristics — wealth, good looks, and high fashion — were undermined by scandals, deceptions, and plenty of name-calling and fighting. So perhaps the timing of The CW’s reboot, with the Trump family in the White House, is perfect. Josh Schwartz, who created The OC, is the man behind the new version of Dynasty, and he promises that if you were a fan of the original Dynasty, you’ll find plenty of fun flashbacks in the new one.
