Here’s when Dynasty Season 3 will return on The CW in 2020, with the new Alexis in tow, and a few details about the Netflix release.
If you’re expecting to keep up with the Carrington family over the holidays, you will be sorely disappointed. Following the shocking midseason finale, which saw the triumphant reappearance of a major character, Dynasty will take a brief hiatus until the new year. Looks like we’ll have to wait a while longer to find out the verdict of Blake’s trial and learn the fate of Adam and Liam’s wobbly tussle at the vineyard.
Dynasty will return on The CW on Friday, Jan. 17, 2020 at 9/8c to answer all of our burning questions and surely hit us with new twists and questions. The series opens 2020 with Episode 10, titled “The Caviar, I Trust, Is Not Burned,” which is surely a quote derived from Alexis. Elaine Hendrix made her debut as Alexis Carrington in the midseason finale, taking over the reigns from former cast member Nicollette Sheridan and, very briefly, Elizabeth Gillies.
As of this writing, there’s no synopsis for the first episode of 2020, though it’s sure to be a jaw-dropper as the Carringtons re-familiarize themselves with the new and improved Alexis. Not to mention, she returned to Atlanta on the arm of her new husband — spoiler alert — Jeff Colby. That union will definitely send shockwaves through the family and will earn vocal dissent from Fallon and meme-of-the-moment Dominique.
Elsewhere, Kirby has all but joined a cult led by her handsome motivational speaker Joel, having been burned by Blake’s aggressive accusations of talking to the FBI. Monica left town with Vanessa to open a new Club Colby in New York and to get away from Dominique. But Dynasty finally seems to have pushed Adam into a corner, showing all of his cards to the wrong people just as he regained his sight. There’s no hope that he’ll sweet talk his way out of Fallon’s vitriol.
Season 3 will, as usual, begin streaming on Netflix in the United States eight days after the season finale in May. International fans accustomed to watching Dynasty on Netflix might be wondering when they will have the chance to dig into Season 3. According to Newsweek, the confusion at the start of the season was settled, and Season 3 will bow on Netflix internationally, all at once, at the same time as the stateside streaming release.
While we wait for the series to make its winter comeback in January, there are plenty of shows to watch on the small screen and on streaming, including seven shows similar to Dynasty. But there’s no doubt we all can’t wait to get our next fix of fresh drama. What do you hope to see when Dynasty returns next year? Do you think Adam or Liam will fall? How will the Carrington family and frenemies react to Alexis’ new face? Share your thoughts and predictions in the comments!
