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 (21)

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

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…

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

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

    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 .

    This was a botched opportunity. Instead of remaking a great show for today's audience they appeared to hand off the writing to disgruntled millenials. The first show commented on "white men" in a negative way a minimum of 3 times. #racism The main character (the daughter) is completely unlikeable. They should've based the show on the Father and his son who are the only real likeable characters in the show. I feel bad for both of them. Their acting talents have been wasted.

    the show is good. it's very entertaining and fun. although there are some things that aren't very realistic, but well there it goes. liz gillies was GREAT.

    I understand that this is a soap opera but DAMN THEY ARE FAKE ))))))))))) some of the actors are just plain bad! lol the intonations, the emotions ... it's just one big joke sometimes. I do like Fallon though. The plot feels a bit rushed in Season 2 - too many new characters suddenly appear and play some important role... hard to really "feel" it.

    When you get bored this show definitely gone entertainment y
