Plot Synopsis

This modernized reboot of the classic '80s soap opera DYNASTY 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 is 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. Fallon is charismatic, cunning and poised to become the new COO of her father's global energy empire -- or so she thinks. When her father summons her 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 -- ut 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. Family dynasties flow through blood, and Fallon would sooner draw blood than call Cristal "mom." Fallon asks Culhane, 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, 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, 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.

The sophomore season of DYNASTY premiered on Friday, October 12, 2018 at 8pm ET/PT on The CW. In the season opener, "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 shoulders.

Season 3 of DYNASTY premiered on Friday, October 11, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT on The CW. In the new season, the Carrington family faces the unknown on all fronts. Dealing with the fallout from the second season finale, Fallon is surrounded by a host of rivals looking to destroy her, the most wicked of which is her own brother, Adam, who takes the idea of "sibling rivalry" to a whole new level of crazy. At the same time, Fallon and Liam attempt to keep their romance sane, but secrets and skeletons from her closet will make that more difficult than ever. And after a year of "me" time, Blake jumps back in the game, ruthlessly determined to reclaim what's rightfully his: the family company Fallon sold out from under him. Only problem is that the newest Colby in town, Blake's half-sister Dominique, is here to stay and she isn't backing down from a fight over what's rightfully hers, either. Meanwhile, Sammy Jo enters an exhilarating phase of the upper-class life, but amongst the thrills of his newfound freedom, there will be dangers lurking. Plus, who knows what faces -- new and old, friendly and unfriendly -- will pop up! This fractured family will have to find a way to come together if they are to claw their way back to the top of the billionaire mountain. In the season opener, "Guilt Trip To Alaska," on the eve of the Carrington Foundation Fundraiser, drama immediately floods the scene as bodies are pulled from the lake on the Carrington Estate. As reporters and detectives move in, Blake, Fallon, Cristal, Adam, and Anders realize they need to get their stories straight very quickly. Dominique Deveraux focuses on her missing son, while Michael Culhane tries to prove that he's been framed... from behind bars. Sam plays comforting friend to both Fallon and Kirby as he continues to work on the hotel. Fallon finds herself haunted by Trixie's death in unexpected ways. Kirby visits Culhane in the slammer and returns to Carrington Manor to find she is no longer welcome. Dominique tries to steal the spotlight at the Fundraiser, Fallon becomes charitable, and Blake loses something incredibly valuable.
On Friday, May 8, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT, The CW premiered "My Hangover's Arrived," the season finale of DYNASTY. It's time for Fallon's surprise bachelorette party and things go exactly as one would expect -- in the world of Carrington.

Four months earlier, The CW renewed DYNASTY for a fourth season.
