Dynasty scores full season order on CW

Posted on

The CW has picked up Dynasty for a full season, EW has learned.

The series, which debuted last month to 1.3 million viewers and a 0.3 in the 18-49 demo, received an additional nine episodes, bringing the season 1 total to 22.

The reboot 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 focuses on Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies), the daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington (Grant Show), and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal (Nathalie Kelley), a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class.

As for fellow freshman drama Valor, The CW doesn’t plan to order additional scripts past its initial 13 episodes, but no decision has been made about its possible future for next season. Though the military drama premiered soft, this week’s episode delivered its best ratings since the show’s debut, matching the series premiere with 1.2 million viewers and a 0.3 in the demo.

Dynasty airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
