The CW's Dynasty reboot trailer gives us exactly what we want: sex, glitz, sex, fighting and even more sex!

An extended teaser for this '80s remake brings to mind The OC and Melrose Place more than the original Dynasty, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Dynasty's central premise is still the same: Cristal Flores (The Vampire Diaries' Nathalie Kelley) is the latest arrival in high society as she ties the knot with tycoon Blake Carrington ('90s hunk Grant Show).

But if she has any intention of living the high life, she'll have to either win over Blake's conniving daughter Fallon (Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll's Elizabeth Gillies)... or get her out of the way.

The OC and Melrose Place vibe undoubtedly comes from Alan Dale' and Grant Shows supporting roles, considering they were stars of the former and latter respectively.

For fans of the classic series, other classic characters will definitely be represented: Sam Adegoke and James Mackay have been cast as heartbreakers Jeff Colby and Steven Carrington.

No-one has been hired as Dame Joan Crawford's drink-throwing diva Alexis Carrington just yet, but count on her showing up sooner rather than later if Dynasty is a hit.

The new Dynasty - which is executive produced by The OC and Gossip Girl's Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage - arrives on The CW in the US on Wednesday, October 11 at 9pm ET. Netlfix airs the show in the UK.
