GRANT SHOW TO STAR IN THE CW's 'DYNASTY' REBOOT!


Fans were delighted late last year to discover that The CW had decided to move forward in making a Dynasty reboot. Since the news, fans of the beloved 80s primetime soap have found out very little about who will play who. However, fans now know who will be one out of the three main leads in the show.

Former Devious Maids and Melrose Place star Grant Show will play the patriarch of the Carrington family. That’s right! Show will play billionaire Blake Carrington! In the original version, that was on ABC, the role of Blake Carrington was played by television legend John Forsythe. Forsyth held the role for all 9 years of the famous TV series.

The Dynasty reboot stems from the minds of Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage and Revenge producer Sally Patrick. There has not yet been an air date set for the reboot. But, The CW has ordered a pilot to be made. The creators of the original version of Dynasty, Robert and Esther Shapiro, will serve as executive producers.

Now, this isn’t the first time a primetime soap has gotten a reboot. TNT tried its hand at a Dallas reboot. It debuted to much fanfare. However, ratings began to plummet in its third and final season. The ratings plummet is mainly due from the passing of Larry Hagman (JR Ewing).

  1. Grant Show as Blake Carrington? That's a bit bizarre. The only thing good I can say about this is Richard and Esther Shapiro are EPs. I'll check it out but I'm not sure I'll like it
