The CW has given a full-season order to their freshman drama Dynasty, while the military drama Valor has received no back order. Dynasty has received an order for nine more episodes, bringing the total to 22. Valor is not canceled, but the show will reportedly run through its 13-episode season before moving to Netflix. A decision will be made after the SVOD numbers come in during the spring.
Dynasty stars Elizabeth Gillies (Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll), Nathalie Kelley (UnReal, The Vampire Diaries), James Mackay (The Leftovers), Sam Adegoke (Murder in the First), Robert Christopher Riley (Hit the Floor) and Rafael de la Fuente (Empire), with Alan Dale (The O.C.), and Grant Show (Melrose Place).

Wealth, power, deception, and double-dealing… what does it take to build a dynasty? A modern re-imagining of the iconic primetime soap, centering on the powerful Carrington family as they defend their throne against the Colbys, new rivals and threats, and even each other.
Valor stars Christina Ochoa (Animal Kingdom), Matt Barr (Sleepy Hollow), Charlie Barnett (Chicago Fire), Corbin Reid (How to Get Away With Murder), W. Trè Davis (Shades of Blue), Nigel Thatch (Selma) and Melissa Roxburgh (Star Trek Beyond). Valor is from CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Bill Haber (Rizzoli & Isles), Anna Fricke (Being Human), and Kyle Jarrow (Lost Generation) and Michael Robin.
The boundaries between military discipline and human desire are tested on a US Army base that houses an elite unit of helicopter pilots trained to perform clandestine international and domestic missions. The drama unfolds in the present as well as in flashbacks to a failed mission involving one of the first female pilots in the unit, ultimately uncovering layers of personal and government/military secrets, and leading to a season-long plan to rescue a group of MIA soldiers.
