The drama's current season will be its last.

It is being reported that Dynasty has been cancelled by The CW. The soapy drama is currently in the middle of its fifth season, which will now be its last.
The series has had an impressive run all things considered. Since its first season, it has been one of the lowest-rated prime time dramas on broadcast television. Now five years later, it is set to surpass the 100-episode milestone before it concludes its time on the air.
Dynasty premiered in 2017 as a reboot of the popular 1980s soap of the same name. The series 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.
But I'm curious... Does the CW have any programming left to cancel at this point? Are they still a channel? Holy cow.
