The CW announced today that Dynasty has been picked up for a full season. The prime time soap opera premiered last month but has struggled to make an immediate impact in the ratings through four episodes. The show garnered a 0.3 in the adults 18-49 demographic for its first two weeks but has fallen to a lowly 0.2 in recent airings.

Rebooted from the 1980s soap opera of the same name, Dynasty follows the rivalry between two upper-crust American families. Fallon Carrington is a cunning young woman on the rise who discovers that her billionaire father is engaged to a younger rival employee at their global energy empire. Not wanting an outsider intruding on her family's dynasty, Fallon becomes allies with her father's nemesis as part of a move to strike out on her own.

Nine additional episodes have been added to Dynasty's first season, bringing its Season 1 total to 22 episodes.
