Dynasty’s New Alexis is Revealed

Friday’s episode of The CW’s Dynasty has revealed who has replaced Nicollette Sheridan as Alexis Carrington on the show.

As Alexis’ bandages came off in the final moments of the episode, giving us our first look at Elizabeth Gillies — yes, the Elizabeth Gillies who also plays Fallon on the show. 

Sheridan exited the show in March due to personal family matters. Back then she told TVLine, “Working on the Dynasty reboot and reprising the iconic role of Alexis has been thoroughly enjoyable, but the chance to spend precious time with my terminally ill mother is more important to me right now. I am hopeful that my fans will embrace my successor with as much passion as they embraced me.”

Gillies took to Twitter the morning after the reveal to see if Dynasty fans are willing to embrace her as the new Alexis and it seems that most are enthusiastic about the move.
