Dynasty's Mass Cast Exodus: 'There's No Dirt to Be Found,' Says CW Boss

What the heck is going on behind-the-scenes at Dynasty? That burning question was put to The CW’s top exec on Sunday in the wake of last week’s latest casting shakeup, which finds Ana Brenda Contreras departing as Cristal Jennings.

“In terms of the Cristal situation, it’s very simple — we hoped that Ana Brenda Contreras would have continued,” CW President Mark Pedowitz told reporters at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour. “She has a personal issue that we had no control over, so we recast her with Daniella Alonso. There’s no dirt to be found.”

Dynasty Season 2 Episode 14 Review: Parisian Legend Has It

Well, That happened. 

Dynasty Season 2 Episode 14 finally brought Adam into the mix, and his entrance will surely go down as one of the most memorable arrivals on TV in quite some time. 

Steven was all over the place. I mean, I figured this George Emerson character was a figment of Steven's imagination before Fallon and Sammy Jo even entertained the possibility. 

Steven has always been an erratic character, and the way he spoke about the elusive George was like he had been in a relationship with him on the down low for years. 

There was a passion in his eyes when he was talking about him, even when he was claiming that the relationship was platonic. It is possible for people to be friends, but there was something off about the way Steven was acting. 

Welcome to our home away from home. Well, one of them.

Dynasty Shocker: Another Series Regular Departs!

The CW's Dynasty is losing another familiar face.

Per TV Line, Nicollette Sheridan is bowing out of the soapy reboot after just over a year in the role of Alexis Carrington.

The CW and CBS Television Studios said, “Nicollette Sheridan will be leaving Dynasty in order to focus on some personal family responsibilities. She was a valuable asset to the show, and we wish her continued success in the future.”

Meanwhile, Sheridan has released her own statement confirming her departure, while lifting the lid on what paved the way for her departure.

“Working on the Dynasty reboot and reprising the iconic role of Alexis has been thoroughly enjoyable, but the chance to spend precious time with my terminally ill mother is more important to me right now," she said via a statement.

Dynasty Season 2 Episode 8 Review: A Real Instinct for the Jugular

Don't ever get in between a Carrington and something they want! 

On Dynasty Season 2 Episode 8, both Fallon and Alexis proved that if they want something bad enough, they will do anything to get it. 

And they play dirty, even amongst each other. 

When Fallon found out she couldn't get the venue she wanted for her wedding, she went to extremes.

Apparently, when you boast the Carrington name, it's perfectly acceptable to flaunt your status around and just purchase the venue. 

With such privileges, I'm not surprised Alexis wanted to sabotage her own daughter to climb up the social ladder once again.

The whole antebellum thing is giving me "Get Out" vibes.

Culhane Permalink: The whole antebellum thing is giving me "Get Out" vibes. Added: December 07, 2018

Instead of helping her daughter, Alexis was doing favors for Southern socialite, Mimi Rose Prescott, to get back into the Peachtree Society. 

Really Alexis?

I'll never understand rich people.

Dynasty Season 2 Episode 5 Review: Queen of Cups

Dynasty picks up the pace with a fun episode but still leaves us wondering about the long game

This episode of Dynasty contains spoilers.

Dynasty Season 2 Episode 5 Review

It’s always good to start with You Make My Dreams Come True, a reminder that Dynasty’s soundtrack rarely falters, even if other creative choices aren’t as strong. The episode itself was a good one – intrigue, zaniness, and a good party - but I still have concerns about the larger season-long arcs.

With a couple of lines of dialogue, the eeriness of swapping one young, kind Latinx Cristal with another went from a knowing wink toward a commonplace practice on soaps to hand waving away the creepiness (and racism-infused misogyny!) of simply indulging in it. Why is Cristal perched on Blake like they’re married? This is aggressive. Also aggressive? Blake buying Cristal’s clinic and shutting it down. And

‘Dynasty’: Another Original Cast Member Exits As Part Of Series’ Creative Overhaul But There Is Twist
Dynasty is down another original Carrington. James MacKay, who played Steven Carrington, Fallon’s (Elizabeth Gillies) gay environmentalist brother, announced on Instagram ahead of tonight’s episode of the CW reboot that he has left the show.

“While Steven had a choice to leave, unfortunately I didn’t,” MacKay said. “There’s a lot of decisions involved in making television, and sometimes they just don’t go your way and you have to live with it.”

While MacKay made it sound like he may be gone forever from the series, I hear that may not be the case. More on that in a bit.

MacKay’s exit as a series regular was part of the major creative overhaul of the reboot of the iconic 1980s soap that started with the introduction of Nicollette Sheridan as Alexis Carrington late in Season 1.

Dynasty Loses Another Series Regular

Just months after Dynasty was rocked by the departure of Nathalie Kelley as (the original) Cristal, we’ll be seeing less of another actor on the fraught CW drama. James Mackay, who has portrayed Steven Carrington since the show premiered in Oct. 2017, will no longer be a series regular, a network rep confirms to TVLine. He will be in a reduced number of episodes, but will return later this season.

Mackay took to Instagram on Friday to reveal the change. “All new #Dynasty tonight, but, yep, sorry to say without yours truly,” he wrote several hours before a new episode was set to air.
