Dynasty Season 3 is a go!

The news was announced at this winter’s bi-annual Television Critics Association, along with the renewal of nine other shows, including The Flash Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. (Hopefully, this means we’ll be getting even more crossover events past Crisis on Infinite Earths!)

“This season, we expanded our primetime schedule to six nights with the addition of Sunday — which has been an unqualified success for the network, our affiliates and our advertisers,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz.

He continued: “In addition to growing our schedule across the week, we also continue to add more year-round programming. The early renewal of these signature CW series gives us a head start on laying out the 2019-2020 season, and this is just the beginning. These shows provide a strong foundation for our multiplatform programming strategy, and we look forward to building on this with even more returning and new shows as we approach the May upfront.”

Dynasty Season 3 Release Date

The CW announced its fall lineup at this week’s upfronts, including the information that Dynasty will stay on Friday nights, with Charmed as its new night buddy. Dynasty Season 3 will premiere on Friday, October 11th at 9pm ET.

We also got a monster of an official synopsis for Dynasty Season 3. Check it out:

As DYNASTY hurtles into its explosive third season, the Carrington family will face the unknown on all fronts. Dealing with the fallout from the startling second season finale, Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) is surrounded by a host of rivals looking to destroy her, the most wicked of which is her own brother, Adam (Sam Underwood), who takes the idea of “sibling rivalry” to a whole new level of crazy.

At the same time, Fallon and Liam (Adam Huber) attempt to keep their romance sane, but secrets and skeletons from her closet will make that more difficult than ever. And after a year of “me” time, Blake (Grant Show) will jump back in the game, ruthlessly determined to reclaim what’s rightfully his: the family company Fallon sold out from under him. Only problem is that the newest Colby in town, Blake’s half-sister Dominique (Michael Michele), is here to stay and she isn’t backing down from a fight over what’s rightfully hers, either.

Meanwhile, Sammy Jo (Rafael De La Fuente) enters an exhilarating phase of the upper-class life, but amongst the thrills of his newfound freedom, there will be dangers lurking. Plus, who knows what faces – new and old, friendly and unfriendly – will pop up! The road ahead is full of the shocking twists and turns you’ve come to expect from the Carrington world. And if we know anything by this point in the series, it’s that our fractured family will have to find a way to come together if they are to claw their way back to the top of the billionaire mountain.

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. Kelly left after the first season, and telenovela star Ana Brenda Contreras (Por Amar Sin Ley) came in to take on the role of the “real” Cristal Flores.
