Critics Consensus

Dynasty's revival retains enough of its predecessor's over-the-top allure to offer a glamorous guilty pleasure in its first season, even if it never quite recaptures the magic of the original.

Critic Reviews for Dynasty Season 1

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (22)

Dynasty needs to be a little bigger. A little broader. A little more off the wall.

The script strains to make it all relevant, referencing other current dynasties including the Kardashians and the Trumps, but the whole enterprise nonetheless feels dated.

Oct 10, 2017 | Full Review…

The single biggest shocker about this Dynasty is that it's not bad.

Top Critic

The trying-too-hard Dynasty reboot on The CW [is] a show that just doesn't deliver the sleazy charm of the original.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

... there's certainly no point in twitting Dynasty for over-doing it -- when that's all it's ever done.

Top Critic

The new Dynasty is ridiculous, but it isn't plausible. It failed the first rule of drama - I didn't believe it.

May 22, 2019 | Full Review…

If you're looking for a fun, trashy nighttime soap with politics that (probably) won't make you cringe, Dynasty fits the bill.

May 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

[Josh] Schwartz, [Stephanie] Savage and [Sallie] Patrick are trying to combine the campiness of the original with the banter-heavy rhythm of their previous shows, and the combination just doesn't work.

May 22, 2019 | Full Review…

It could be fun, so long as it doesn't try to make you think too much. That's pretty much Dynasty in a nutshell.

Jun 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Drinks, diamonds, and drama galore in fun, soapy reboot.

Oct 10, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The rebooted Dynasty is a paler shade of the original - it doesn't have the same scale in terms of attitude and sass, not yet anyway.

Oct 10, 2017 | Full Review…

The show does a lot to let us know that it's of the times.

Audience Reviews for Dynasty: Season 1

    Feels like a lot of relationship drama in a show. It follows the same CW formula some other shows have. And it's not good. There honestly isn't one character that i like. Pretty bad.
  • May 28, 2020
    Sloppy horrible writing but what's worse is how racist and tone-deaf this show is. Black and Latino characters are portrayed as gold-digging, law-breaking payroll enablers. Nauseating racism all over. Latino-hating, black-insulting, gay-demeaning, white-bukkakeism. Unbelievable.
  • Apr 25, 2020
    Good show but the REALLY need to tone down the blatant racist and gay stereotypes. It's about as subtle as Disney's, ike when Fallon implied Monica was a pest right after she said the word raccoon.
  • Apr 24, 2020
    The tv is good but it missed a little of drama but de the characters are good on the story interesting
  • Apr 22, 2020
    I LOVE THIS SHOW!!! i am always on the edge of my seat!!!
  • Feb 03, 2020
    Definitely keeps your attention , only bad thing I would say is it doesn't keep you guessing very long. They spill the beans very quickly .
  • Dec 14, 2019
    Great show with great plot and acting
  • Dec 04, 2019
    I love it especially Liz Gilles!!! I never watched the old version, it was before my time but I really enjoy and look forward to new episodes!
  • Nov 27, 2019
    I can't get enough of this show, Fallon sure is a strong women that is showing a updated version compared to the older version of the show. Showing the strong work ethics of women and that women shouldn't be so underestimated.
  • Sep 07, 2019
    Loving the second season it's just so much drama like perfect show to see for drama, it can be funny at some times like " omg why ", but that's if a person it's a sucker for drama .
