Dynasty Season 2 Episode 16 Trailer and Details

Here's everything you need to know about Dynasty Season 2 on the CW.

Dynasty Season 2 News, Reviews, and Episode Guide

Dynasty season 2 is now here! That extra night of CW programming may have been a boon to a show like Dynasty, which has struggled to return to the ratings it saw in its October premiere, in spite of the fact that it’s a reboot of an incredibly well-known show, created by a powerhouse team.

Still, The CW’s deal with Netflix means that a show like Dynasty could follow in Riverdale‘s footsteps, picking up traction after its first season closes, thanks to a quick turnaround on the streaming service and steadily improving word of mouth. It’s well on its way. Guess what? Dynasty has been renewed for a third season!

Dynasty Season 2 will return on March 29th with Episode 16: “Parisian Legend Has It…” Check out the promo…

Here’s the full synopsis:

“A damaging article threatens the strength of the Carrington reputation; Fallon seeks to get ahead of the narrative by fast tracking a slate-cleaning memoir; Blake throws a celebratory party; Cristal asks Sam to chaperone an intimidating visitor.”

Dynasty Season 2 Cast

Dynasty was created by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the award-winning team behind Gossip Girl, The O.C, and Marvel’s Runaways. It stars Elizabeth Gillies as energy tycoon/heiress Fallon Carrington. Nathalie Kelley was the season one co-lead as Cristal Carrington, nee Flores, who married Blake in the pilot to become Fallon’s stepmother in spite of being of a similar age.

However, Dynasty has not been without behind the scenes drama of its own. Kelley announced over the summer that she won’t return, with CW President Mark Pedowitz expressing shock that Kelley would reveal that secret, since her character’s fate was one of several cliffhangers at the end of season 1. Pedowitz revealed during the TCA summer press tour (via THR) that telenovela star Ana Brenda Contreras (Por Amar Sin Ley) will take on the role of the “real” Cristal Flores. Dynasty is Contreras’s first English-language role.

According to TVLine, Nicollette Sheridan has been promoted to a series regular for Dynasty Season 2, which means Alexis Carrington will be back to wreak more havoc.

This season Maddison Brown joined the cast as Kirby Anders, Anders’ troubled daughter who was once believed to have been involved in some anti-Fallon related arson as a teen.

Just before episode 5 “Queen of Cups” aired, James Mackay announced via his Instagram that he was no longer a regular on the show, apparently not by his own choice.

Dynasty also stars Sam Adegoke as Jeff Colby, Robert Christopher Riley as Michael Culhane, and Rafael de la Fuente as Sammy Jo, with Alan Dale as Anders and Grant Show as Blake Carrington.
