Is Dynasty Season 6 canceled by CW? Continue reading to learn more.
On December 20, 2021, Dynasty, an American television series based on the 1980s prime time soap opera of the same name, began on The CW in the United States. On February 3, 2021, the series was revived for a fifth season. It is one of the best series that CW has available on the network since 2017, with plenty of drama and deception between the members of the family. With superb acting and stunning sets, this series had TV enthusiasts glued to their screens as it depicts how one multi-millionaire family maintains their lavish lifestyle. It is a must-see series if you like the tale of conflicted emotions, loyalty, and treachery running parallel among the characters.
Moreover, when a franchise has the potential to offer more and a fanbase that tunes in every week when a new episode is released, the question of whether the series will be renewed or canceled in the middle of the season is commonly debated and speculated about among audiences. So, if you were looking forward to the next chapter of Dynasty, we have some disappointing news for you. The possibility to binge-watch Dynasty Season 6 was unfortunately short-lived since the show was officially canceled by The CW. Here’s everything we know about the abrupt cancellation of the show.
Will there be Season 6 of Dynasty?
The CW announced on May 12, 2022, that Dynasty Season 6 would be canceled after five seasons. As a result, the series has no chance of being renewed by the network, as many CW original series have been reported to be canceled, even if the series had a large fanbase who were eager to see more seasons of these shows in order to have a good concluding storyline that these beloved characters truly deserved. Sadly, this is not the case for Dynasty even after having such a long run for the network.
Some of the cast embers also shared this news with their fans, Elizabeth Gillies who portrays Fallon Carrington took to Instagram and stated, “Mommy & Daddy are on a mission Saving the goodbyes for a later post since we still have 12 fantastic episodes for you to enjoy and 6 more to shoot! Tomorrow’s is a great one. Don’t miss it.” Take a look at the post below:

Rafael de La Fuente who plays Samuel Josiah also took to Instagram and shared the post, quoting, “A true privilege. It has been one crazy, beautiful ride. Even though season 5 will be the last, my gratitude is everlasting.” Take a look at the post below:

Why did CW cancel Dynasty Season 6?
According to Deadline, The CW series Dynasty was considered one of the most vulnerable to a renewal. However, it became the victim of low ratings, and its prior renewals, like 4400, were prompted by the money the show brings in for CBS Studios through its Netflix partnership. The series did have a decent quantity of viewers, however, it received mixed or average reviews from critics.
Moreover, the fandom is still speculating whether Dynasty could be renewed for a sixth season because they are still hopeful that the series should be renewed and saved from this sudden cancelation because the public demand is still higher. However, given the prior seasons’ low traditional ratings on The CW, this seems a little far-fetched and questionable. It was also stated that when The CW and Netflix’s collaboration expired in 2019, the two networks made decisions that led to the cancellation of many series. As a result, these are some of the factors why the CW decided to discontinue the show and stop investing in new seasons.

What could have been the plot for Dynasty Season 6?
As of May 21, 2022, the series’ fifth season is still airing. So far only the first 12 episodes have premiered out of a reported 22-episode season. More details about the upcoming episodes will be released as the episode draws closer to its premiere. As a result, these remaining episodes will follow up on the premise and explore more about the plotlines that will conclude the series.
We have listed down the official synopsis of the upcoming episodes which are released by the network to get a glimpse of where the series is heading. The official synopsis of episode 12, There’s No Need To Panic, states, “Blake and Cristal find themselves in a new kind of awkward situation with Sonya; a distracted Fallon has an adventurous breakfast with Alexis; as Liam’s movie wraps, he decides to have a heart-to-heart with Culhane.” The episode is directed by Robin Givens and written by David M. Israel.
Take a look at the official promo below:
In the last episode, viewers got to see that, Blake and Cristal find themselves in an embarrassing scenario with Sonya in this episode. Fallon had an eventful breakfast with Alexis while distracted. Meanwhile, Liam chooses to have a heart-to-heart with Culhane as his film concludes. Finally, Kirby arrives from Milan, and Amanda drags him into her sibling feud with Adam.
The official synopsis of episode 13 states, “Not all goes as planned when Blake and Cristal work on the opening of PPA; Fallon takes extreme measures to further her company; Adam needs Liam’s help for his next business venture.” The episode is directed by Andi Behring and written by Malcolm Boomer & Chava Friedberg.
The official synopsis of episode 14 states, “It’s Alexis’ wedding day and as she attempts to make sure everything runs smoothly, everyone else in the family seems to have their own agenda; Blake receives a package that raises some questions; Fallon and Liam make a life-changing decision.” The episode is directed by Pascal Verschooris and written by Josh Reims & Christopher Fife.
These plot summaries provide viewers a general idea of the plot, but not the complete picture that the show’s writers have translated from the pages to the screen. As a result, we can’t foresee what important details or shocks will occur in these episodes, how the season will conclude, or what narrative strands will emerge in the future episodes, which will air every Friday in the coming weeks.
As a result, we recommend that fans patiently wait and watch the episodes in order to develop conclusions that will lead to the story and character arcs’ completion and say a sound goodbye to these beloved characters.

Dynasty Offical Synopsis
The official synopsis of the series states, “A modernized reboot of the 1980s primetime soap follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. Told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds — Fallon Carrington, daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington; and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal, a Hispanic woman marrying into the WASP family — “Dynasty” not only features the glitz and gloss of extreme wealth but also exposes the dark underbelly of a corrupt world built on backroom deals.”
