As the current season of the drama series Dynasty comes to an end, a fool and his money will soon be divided. The CW has cancelled Dynasty, as well as a number of other shows, including remakes Charmed and 4400, as well as newbies In the Dark and Naomi. The Carringtons are a wealthy family whose members are constantly fighting over money – as well as their pursuit for genuine relationships with people who have no hidden agendas.
With Season 5 currently airing, there’s a chance that Dynasty may reach a satisfying conclusion: it all hinges on how much they’ve filmed so far and whether the remaining episodes allow enough breathing room to wrap up the season’s arcs. A video of Elizabeth Gillies and her onscreen father and fellow costar Grant Show leaping up and down on one of the Carrington’s pricey couches was released a few weeks ago to commemorate the show’s 100th episode.
However, we have no idea how far Season 5 filming is underway — it could be over already. To get a clear picture and learn if the series will finish with an open ending or not, we’ll have to wait for word from series producers Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, and Sallie Patrick.
Rafael De La Fuente, a series regular and fan favourite, took to Instagram to commemorate the completion of the Dynasty cycle. He shared a photo of the cast partying on set with the words “A true honour.” It’s been a wild and wonderful ride. My gratitude is eternal, even though Season 5 will be the final.” De La Fuente portrays Sam Jones, a gay man who started out in Carrington’s life as a gold digger but ended up buying and operating an upmarket hotel in Atlanta.
Dynasty is a reproduction of a popular primetime soap series that ran from 1981 to 1989 on ABC. Both productions follow the Carrington family’s affluent lifestyle. Dead relatives coming back to life, estranged siblings and heirs being uncovered, stolen identities, and – believe it or not – a change of actors justified in the tale with plastic surgery have all been portrayed in the remake series.
Robert Christopher Riley, Sam Adegoke, Elaine Hendrix, Daniella Alonso, Maddison Brown, Sam Underwood, Adam Huber, Michael Michele, and Eliza Bennett round out the Dynasty cast.
On Friday nights, the CW broadcasts new episodes of Dynasty. The next one, “I’ll Settle For a Prayer,” will be released tomorrow. De La Fuente’s Instagram post can be found here:
