    The CW has created logos for its series with abbreviations of the series' names. I'm puzzled by the logo for "Dynasty" because it's "DS". Can someone please explain?

    Might have something to do with their streaming app CW Seed.

    Maybe, to stand for Dynasty Series; if they thought it awkward to just have a single initial & too unwieldy to have 'D on the CW'.

    "DS" is sooooo obvious. After all, the channel is called "The WC", isn´t it...?

    Just putting "D" up there would look strange. I guess DynaSty was as good as they could get for a one-word title.

    Charmed
    got off easy since they have that symbol (three interlocking rings or something) as part of the mythology of the show.

    True, their other shows with no real natural short title have more of a symbol - Arrow being an arrowhead and Legacies being an L with blood dripping from it. I guess the S might've been chosen because of the dollar sign to represent the Carrington wealth (D$).
