Dynasty, the new Gossip Girl series?

December 1, 2017

Dynasty is an American prime time televison soap opera which is a reboot based on the 1980s series of the same name. The show is developed by Josh Schwartz ( co-creator, writer and executive producer of Gossip Girl, The Carrie Diaries...) and Stephanie Savage ( also writer , executive producer and co-creator of Gossip Girl…) and Sallie Patrick. The new series stars are Grant Show( Born to race, The girl next door…) as Blake Carrington , Nathalie Kelley ( the Vampire Diaries, Urban Explorer…) as his new wife Cristal Flores Carrington , Elizabeth Gillies ( iCarly, Victorious…) as Blake’s daughter Fallon, and James Mackay ( The Dressmaker, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales…) as his son Steven. Dynasty premiered on October 11, 2017 on  the CW Network in the United States , and on Netflix internationally a day later.

The series begins with Fallon Carington , the heiress of the society which found her father engaged to Cristal , a rival employee at the family company.   She begins to plan the separation of the two lovebirds and it costs her a promotion. She decides to get allies with Jeff Colby , one of her friends and rivals of the company and get her own success. Meanwhile , Cristal’s nephew arrives and becomes romantically involved with Steven.  He threatens her to expose her shady past. The Carringtons form a united front in the wake of the suspicious death of Cristal’s former lover, but things at the mansion do not remain harmonious for long.

As the CW Network thought that it had been a long time since Gossip Girl had stopped and that no series had taken the lead of that kind of shows, they decided to take a chance with this reboot. With Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage we may be sure that we’ll find some interesting things in this show and we have to follow it closely!

Personally I have already started to watch the 4 first episodes and I still don’t know if I can call it a successor of GG. It is too soon to make any judgment and for now I feel like no one will ever equal Serena, Blair , Nate , Dan and Chuck’s story, but that is for sure that we can’t say never say never and by giving a chance to this series we might have good surprises.  So let’s wait for the first season and see.
