The Dynasty Revival Cast Has Already Perfected the Dramatic Reaction Shot and It's Beautiful to Watch

Oh. My. Dynasty.

Rejoice, soap lovers, because The CW is bringing back one of TV’s most iconic series, Dynasty, and it looks just as over-the-top and decadent as the original show.

And while they have some pretty big shoulder pads to fill (All hail, Joan Collins!), the cast is more than ready for their dramatic close-up. We know this because E! News put them on the spot on the red carpet at the network’s Upfront presentation in New York City, asking Alan Dale, Elizabeth Gillies and Nathalie Kelley to give us their best dramatic turn to the camera.

Warning: the video above will give you chills. That’s how damn good the cast is at bringing the dramatic stare. Of course, Alan Dale, ever the professional with his experience on soaps such as Neighbors and The O.C., even added in his own dialogue, warning, “I know everything.”

But the revival’s new guys, Sam Adegoke, Rafael de la Fuente and James Mackay, were more than able to hold their own, even if Rafael admitted he had no idea what is look’s “subtext” was. (Whatever it was, we didn’t hate it!)

Gossip Girl and The O.C.‘s Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage have teamed with the original show’s creators, Esther and Richard Shapiro, to bring the soap that defined the ’80s to 2017. And judging from the video above, they’ve assembled the right cast for the job.

Dynasty will air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on The CW this fall.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Premieres

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales sets sail May 26.

In the weeks leading up the blockbuster’s theatrical release, Javier Bardem, Orlando Bloom, Jerry Bruckheimer, Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush and Brenton Thwaites have traveled the globe to promote the fifth installment in the popular franchise. The film’s press tour kicked off May 11 at Shanghai Disney Resort and marked the first time a Hollywood film premiered in Mainland China. A screening was held at the Walt Disney Grand Theatre at Disneytown, and they later stopped by Shanghai Disneyland’s Treasure Cove, the first pirate-themed land at a Disney park.

Directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg joined the actors on the adventure.

Next up was a May 14 visit to Disneyland Paris—part of the theme park’s 25th anniversary celebrations. Actress Kaya Scodelario joined the cast and crew outside Sleeping Beauty Castle.

The group set sail for the United States and attended the Hollywood premiere May 18. E! News was on the red carpet, where Rush called the movie an “epic tale,” adding, “To have Orlando back was great.” Bardem, meanwhile, said it was “great” to work with Depp: “You never know what he will bring!” Bruckheimer, who started the series in 2003, praised Depp’s “wonderful” return as Captain Jack Sparrow, telling E! News, “We’d love to do more if we can get him back!”

Before the film hits theaters next week, look back at its world premieres:

For more from the premiere, tune in to E! News tonight at 7 and 11, only on E!
