We can’t quite believe we’re typing this either, but you’re going to have to dig out your shoulder pads; 80s TV hit Dynasty is getting a reboot!

The over-the-top soap – which never let the small matter of common sense get in the way of a good storyline – saw alien abductions, a supposed wedding massacre and too many impressive catfights to count during its nine-season reign on the small screen.

And now the creators of noughties teen drama The O.C. have reportedly dusted off the Carringtons and the Colbys and dragged them, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century.

“The Rolls Royce of all prime time soaps returns in a modernised reboot that follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children,” Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage revealed in a statement.

“The series will be 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.

“In an age where dynasties appear everywhere – from reality TV to the polling booths – this epic drama features the one per cent in all its glitz and gloss, while exposing the dark underbelly: a corrupt world built on backroom deals, betrayal, and, in some cases, murder.”

We’re hooked already.


The show’s original creators, Richard and Esther Shapiro, have also been linked to the project; we can only hope that Joan Collins makes a cameo or three to really bring it home.
