The CW has released trailers for its new fall fare, including the Dynasty reboot and military drama Valor as well as midseason dramas Black Lightning and Life Sentence. (Check out the ABC trailers here, the Fox trailers here, the NBC trailers here, and the CBS trailers here.)

Dynasty (Wednesdays, 9 p.m. ET)
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 will focus on Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies), the daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington, and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal (Nathalie Kelley), a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class.

Valor (Mondays, 9 p.m. ET)
The boundaries between military discipline and human desire are tested on a U.S. Army base that houses an elite unit of helicopter pilots trained to perform clandestine international and domestic missions. It centers on chopper pilots Nora and Gallo (Matt Barr) who — after a botched mission in Somalia that leaves a pair of American servicemen in enemy hands — train for a rescue operation. Only they share a very large secret from the initial operation, a secret that must never come to the attention of the Army.

Black Lightning (Midseason)
Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) made his choice: he hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with one daughter hell-bent on justice and the other a star student being recruited by a local gang, he’ll be pulled back into the fight as the wanted vigilante and DC legend Black Lightning.

Life Sentence (Midseason)
When a young woman (Lucy Hale) diagnosed with terminal cancer finds out she’s not dying after all, she has to learn to live with the choices she made when she decided to “live like she was dying.”
