Dynasty Reboot Will Return For Season 2 On The CW


Last October you have been witnessing a reboot of the 1980s soap opera Dynasty, which kicked off on The CW. Despite the former glory of the prime time television show, the ratings of the new series were not impressive enough. Nonetheless, on April 2, 2018, The CW announced that Dynasty had been renewed for a second season. In fact, The CW has picked up ten their prime time series for their respective next seasons. But anyway, it's nice that Dynasty was on the list despite the controversial reception from critics. But given the fact that the viewers were fully satisfied with the modern look of Dynasty, the series could become the long-term television project on The CW.

Indeed, the reception was mixed. On Rotten Tomatoes, the first installment of the soap opera holds a score of 6.59/10 and a 53% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have evaluated the reboot of Dynasty at 4.3/5/85%. Meanwhile, on Metacritic, the show has a score of 52/100 and 8.1/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. An overall rating of Dynasty on IMDb looks average, 6.7/10 > 4,000 votes.

The premiere of Dynasty has garnered 1.259 million viewers with a 0.33 demo rating among adults 18-49. But the viewing audience has decreased closer to the end of the season. We hope that in the next installment Dynasty will showcase more impressive results.

Summing up, the reboot of Dynasty was a success. Perhaps you don't know that The CW relies on the response from the target audience before their decision to renew or cancel a series. That's why Crazy Ex-Girlfriend remained in The CW's line up this time. Therefore, if the viewing audience of Dynasty didn't drop below the mark of half a million of viewers, we tend to think that The CW would renew the show for a third season next year.
