New York —  Dynasty is returning to TV, nearly 30 years after the prime-time soap opera aired its last hair-pulling fight.

CW said on Thursday that the reboot will be one of four new series joining the network's schedule in the 2017-18 season.

The Dynasty remake will put a fresh twist on the show for a new generation of viewers, CW executives said.

Joan Collins and Linda Evans starred in the 1980s series as duelling divas.

The network is open to including original cast members but it's up to the new show's producers, CW president Mark Pedowitz said.

The show will debut later in the year, along with the freshman military drama Valour.
