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.
