The Carringtons were the competition to the Ewings on Dallas in the 1980s and now they're back for a Dynasty reboot.

Aaron Spelling's classic soapie has been revived by US network The CW and Netflix has the international distribution rights to it so the show's signature catfights are now happening via streaming.

It premieres on Netflix this Thursday (12 October) and new episodes will be released one at a time, weekly.

There's a new cast, and it's set in a new location - the action has moved from Denver to Atlanta - but the characters and plot are the same.

Billionaire Blake Carrington gets married to his young, sexy former secretary Krystle and his ambitious daughter Fallon has a freak-out that lasts the series.

She plots against Krystle with her lover Culhane, the chauffeur, before moving on to team up with her father's arch rival Jeff Colby.

The cast includes Broadway actress Elizabeth Gillies (Victorious), who stars as Fallon Carrington, Grant Show (Melrose Place) plays Blake, Robert Christopher Riley (Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse) plays Culhane, Sam Adegoke (Switched at Birth) plays Jeff Colby and Nathalie Kelley (The Vampire Diaries, UnREAL) plays Krystle, spelt as "Cristal" in the new series.

Here's a trailer:
