As The CW's Dynasty enters into its explosive third season on Friday, October 11, the Carrington family will face the unknown on all fronts.

Dealing with the fallout from the startling second season finale, Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) is surrounded by a host of rivals looking to destroy her, the most wicked of which is her own brother, Adam (Sam Underwood), who takes the idea of “sibling rivalry” to a whole new level of crazy.

This addictive reboot is honoring the ABC classic without relying on carbon copies of its characters.

At the same time, Fallon and Liam (Adam Huber) attempt to keep their romance sane, but secrets and skeletons from her closet will make that more difficult than ever. And after a year of “me” time, Blake (Grant Show) will jump back in the game, ruthlessly determined to reclaim what’s rightfully his: the family company Fallon sold out from under him.

The season premiere opens on the eve of the Carrington Foundation Fundraiser. Drama immediately floods the scene as bodies are pulled from the lake on the Carrington Estate. As reporters and detectives move in, Blake, Fallon, Cristal (Daniella Alonso), Adam, and Anders (Alan Dale) realize they need to get their stories straight very quickly. Dominique Deveraux (Michael Michele) focuses on her missing son, while Michael Culhane (Robert Christopher Riley) tries to prove that he's been framed from behind bars.
