Old money gets a new take in the CW reboot of Dynasty. Based on the camp spectacular that was the '80s soap starring Joan Collins, the modern retelling brings all the cheesy drama we desperately need to distract us from the real drama going on today.
Stop us if you've heard this one: The show follows Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies) upon her return home to her family's quaint manor. Reunited with her snarky gay brother, Steven (James Mackay) and her millionaire father, Blake (Grant Show), she finds herself thrown by a new addition to the family. Upon meeting Cristal Flores (Nathalie Kelley), her dad's wife-to-be, Fallon growns suspiscious of the young woman's intentions.
With all this drama, there's a lot to look forward to. Let's take a look at what we're most excited about.
You can't steal a rich husband without an assortment of extravagantly fabulous hats. Remember, the wider the brim, the more important you look.

We may never afford any places like this in our lifetime, but it doesn't hurt to dream. Just show us the room with the biggest closet.
Who cares if he has a couple of greedy heirs? We know how to get into his pants... for his wallet, of course.
The original show was super progressive with their inclusion of a gay son, Steven Carrington. Let's hope the reboot amps up those steamy encounters.
You can't build a dynasty without a cat fight or two. Let's hope these ladies' wigs are glued down tight because shit's about to get real.
Dynasty premieres this fall on the CW. Watch the trailer, below:
