It’s premiere week on The CW and we’re excited. All of our favorites coming back and we can’t wait to see what is in store. Now along with the old, the new is returning and one of those being the revival of Dynasty.
With the revival coming from two Gossip Girl creators, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, we’re not surprised that the show would get some comparisons.
Dynasty tells the story of the two wealthy families – the Colbys and the Carringtons. We’re going to see all the drama that surrounds both families as the fight over fortune, love, and everything in between. We’re going to see a struggle for power and control.
And yes, we’re excited, but still not sure about Dynasty, but we’re looking forward to it.
But back to the comparisons. Luckily Elizabeth Gillies addressed the comparisons in talking to Teen Vogue.
“There are parallels within the characters,” Elizabeth said “Don’t try to compare me to [Leighton Meester], because I might not live up to everyone’s expectations of being as good as Blair Waldorf. She’s a legend.”
We bow down, cause that is truth. Blair Waldorf is a legend. Then again, so is Sabrina Vanderwoodsen.
When talking to the site about the show she continued, “There’s a beautiful chance to escape in our show, because these characters live such a decadent life. These families, the Carringtons and Colbys, there’s nothing that they can’t get. There’s nothing that they don’t have, but they’re not happy. They want to escape in this beautiful world of champagne, and private jets, but when the lights go down, and all the characters are alone in their rooms at the end of the night, the dysfunction is still there.”
We’re going to try Dynasty out, we admit it. But we’re not sure about it yet. We’re kinda hoping that it’s a lot like Gossip Girl, cause we’re down for that drama.
Dynasty premieres October 11th on The CW.
