Dynasty Brief Information

Dynasty was an American prime time television soap opera that aired on ABC from January 12, 1981 to May 11, 1989. The series, created by Richard & Esther Shapiro and produced by Aaron Spelling, revolved around the Carringtons, a wealthy oil family living in Denver, Colorado. Starring John Forsythe, Linda Evans and Joan Collins as oil magnate Blake Carrington, his new wife Krystle, and his former wife Alexis. Dynasty was ABC's competitor to CBS's prime time series Dallas.

Ratings for the show's first season were unremarkable, but the second-season arrival of Joan Collins as Blake's scheming first wife Alexis heralded Dynasty rise into the Top 20. By the fall of 1982, it was a top ten show and by 1985, it was the #1 series on American television. Dynasty was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best TV Drama Series every year from 1981 to 1986, winning in 1984. Dynasty spawned a successful line of fashion and luxury products, and also a spin-off series called The Colbys. Dynasty dropped from #7 to #24 during the 1986-87 season, and was ultimately canceled in May 1989 after a nine-season run. A two-part mini-series, Dynasty: The Reunion, aired in October 1991.
