Proving yet again that we're living in an age of nostalgia, Dynasty, the iconic soap opera that epitomized 1980s-era extravagance, is heading back to television.

Deadline reports that the CW has picked up the reboot, which will be set in the present day, for a full season.

Much like the original, the series will follow "two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children," and will star Elizabeth Gillies and Nathalie Kelley.

Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (who created both The OC and Gossip Girl) will serve as executive producers on the show, which is slated to debut during the 2017-2018 season.

Watch the first drama-filled trailer for the series below:
