This is a different bit of casting news for The CW’s Dynasty.
Whenever there are cast changes for the reboot, they almost always include a beloved series regular exiting.
However, just hours ahead of Dynasty Season 3, it has been revealed that four cast members have been promoted to series regular status.
TV Line is reporting that Adam Huber, who plays Liam Ridley on the first two seasons of the series, has finally landed a series regular contract.
It’s surprising the network confirmed the news before Dynasty Season 3 Episode 1 airing given that Dynasty Season 2 concluded with Liam’s fate very much up in the air.
Still, this will be music to the ears of the fans that have been clamoring for more of Liam ever since his debut on the series.
Liam shares a strong connection with Fallon, and one that fans picked up on from the get-go.

The pair also have a back and forth thing going on as far as their relationship status goes, so this could mean they might make it work.
The outlet also confirmed that Sam Underwood has scored a promotion as the scheming Adam Carrington.
The character first arrived last season and wasted no time in causing some trouble. His line of thinking was that everything with the Carrington name was rightfully his.
That’s why he got Stephen locked up in a facility in France. He aimed to scheme his way to the top of the Carrington family fortune.
Along the way, he found himself going up against a long line of enemies.
He actually attacked Liam, leading fans to question whether the latter survived, mainly when it emerged that two bodies were pulled from the pool.
Then there’s Daniella Alonso, who is assuming the role of Cristal Jennings. Yes, there have been three Cristals in the space of three seasons.

It’s becoming a yearly thing at this point. Whether this one will stick around any longer than the other two iterations of the character, we don’t know.
Finally, we have Michael Michele, who debuted as Dominique Devereaux on Dynasty Season 2.
Dynasty stars Elizabeth Gillies as Fallon Carrington, Rafael de la Fuente as Sammy Jo, Robert Christopher Riley as Michael Culhane, Sam Adegoke as Jeff Colby, Maddison Brown as Kirby Anders, Alan Dale as Joseph Anders, and Grant Show as Blake Carrington.
