Rejoice, soap lovers, because The CW is bringing back one of TV's most iconic series, Dynasty, and it looks just as over-the-top and decadent as the original show.
And while they have some pretty big shoulder pads to fill (All hail, Joan Collins!), the cast is more than ready for their dramatic close-up. We know this because E! News put them on the spot on the red carpet at the network's Upfront presentation in New York City, asking Alan Dale, Elizabeth Gillies and Nathalie Kelley to give us their best dramatic turn to the camera.
Today the first stills for the upcoming CW reboot of Dynasty were revealed, along with the time slot it will be airing on! The reboot will get the same time slot as the original series, which is Wednesdays at 9pm and will premiere sometime in October. You can check out the first still featuring Liz as Fallon Carrington in our gallery.
Also, the 2017 CW Upfronts are being held as we speak and I've added the first pictures of Liz on the red carpet to our gallery! Stay tuned for more.

Elizabeth Gillies has been cast in the CW’s “Dynasty,” Variety has learned exclusively.
Gillies will star as Fallon Carrington, one of the central characters in the pilot, which is a modernized reboot of the original ’80s primetime soap.
“Dynasty” follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. The series will be told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds: Fallon Carrington — daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington — and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal — a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class.
Previously announced, “UnReal” and “The Vampire Diaries” alum Nathalie Kelley will play Cristal.
In the original series, Fallon Carrington was played by Pamela Sue Martin and Emma Samms, who was re-cast in the role. Fallon is the daughter of Blake Carrington, who was played by John Forsythe on the ’80s primetime soap.
Gillies is coming off of FX’s “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll” on which she starred as Denis Leary’s daughter. The show was cancelled after two seasons last fall. She was one of Variety’s 10 TV Actors to Watch in 2015 when she was cast in the FX series. She got her start on Nickelodeon, starring on the hit tween series “Victorious,” enabling her to gain a large fan following, which is a perfect fit for the CW’s young, social-savvy audience.
“Dynasty” hails from “Gossip Girls” creators Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Sallie Patrick. The writers will all serve as executive producers, along with the original “Dynasty” creators, Esther and Richard Shapiro. Schwartz and Savage’s Fake Empire shingle is behind the pilot, along with CBS Television Studios. Fake Empire’s Lis Rowinski will serve as a co-executive producer.
Gillies is repped at Paradigm, 360 and Ziffren, Brittenham, Branca, Fischer, Gilbert-Lurie.
Today marks 6 years since Elizabeth-Gillies.net first went online! To celebrate the site has gotten a (long overdue) new look, featuring photos from Liz's beautiful photoshoot for Composure magazin. The gallery has been updated as well with all photoshoots and some SDRR season 2 pictures that I had missed during our semi-hiatus. Thanks to my friend Melanie all pictures from past events have been added also.
Now, I know that things haven't been the same here since last year. The site's been pretty quiet and was only updated sporadically, but I want to take this milestone as an opportunity to change that. I can't and won't promise that it'll be like "the old days" where I updated it many times a day because my time at the moment is very limited. But I vow to do better this year and will try to do my best keep this site alive.
Thank you all for sticking around and here's to another year!
Liz wasa at the Harper's Bazaar Celebrates 150 Most Fashionable Women Event on January 27. I added over 45 HQ Pictures of her arriving at the Event into the gallery.
