The reboot of the sudsy drama about two wealthy families feuding over their fortune and children premieres. In the opener, Fallon Carrington seeks revenge when her father promotes his new bride-to-be, Cristal, over her to become the COO of his global energy empire.
The spotlight falls on the Carringtons when it's discovered that Matthew's death may have involved foul play.
