Also, it has the blessing of creators Richard and Esther Shapiro; fills the same timeslot it had back on ABC in the '80s; and could even include some vets.

The promos were shown during The CW Upfronts presentation on Thursday (May 18) in New York City.

In a schedule change, "Jane the Virgin" will move to 9 p.m. on Friday, following "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend".

The CW canceled "Frequency", "No Tomorrow", "Reign" and "The Vampire Diaries".

CW's new "Dynasty" will have an all-new cast - headed by Grant Show - playing a new generation of ultra-rich Carringtons locked in an ongoing battle for wealth and power with each other.

Speaking with reporters earlier today, The CW chief Mark Pedowitz suggested that they are open to bringing in some nostalgic guest casting, there was nothing specific planned as of yet. From 2008-2009, she played Rose Baker in the comedy Privileged.

"I think Danish girls might be a little more chill-at least, that's what I've heard from people who've also dated American girls", she told Maxim. Cress Williams stars as Jefferson Pierce, years after he hung up his crime fighting was as Black Lightning; he finds himself dragged back into the life he left behind when his daughter follows in his footsteps.

Wednesdays have Riverdale and Dynasty, the primetime soap from executive producers Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Sallie Patrick. Watch them locally at KBCW 44 Cable 12.
