Gossip Girl bosses Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage have re-imagined the iconic series for new audience.

The duo, who also worked on The OC, have promised the new Dynasty will be full of the same glamour and drama that made its original counterpart so successful.

Dynasty ran for nine successful series between 1981 to 1989, and shot to fame after Dame Joan Collins joined the cast in 1982.

The show followed the drama surrounding two warring wealthy families: the Carringtons and the Colbys, with Joan playing the infamous Alexis.

The publication continued: “The drama will be told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds: Fallon Carrington, daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington and her soon-to-be stepmother, a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class.”
