It’d be great fan service if they kept Locklear as a “special guest star” in the opening title sequence.

A Melrose Place reboot is in the works, and in addition to Locklear (Amanda Woodward), Laura Leighton (Sydney Andrews) and Daphne Zuniga (Jo Reynolds) are among the returning stars. Via Deadline:

Heather Locklear, Laura Leighton and Daphne Zuniga are reuniting for a followup to the 1990s staple. A Melrose Place reboot, with the trio attached to star, is in development at CBS Studios and is currently being shopped to networks and streamers, Deadline has learned.

Written by Lauren Gussis, creator/executive producer on the Netflix/CBS Studios series Insatiable, the new Melrose Place picks up years after the original series, created by Darren Star, and would provide an update on the beloved characters, one of whom may no longer be with us.

In the new installment, when one of their dearest friends dies suddenly, the OG residents of Melrose Place gather to honor the deceased. But the pressure cooker of a reunion soon uncovers old traumas, rekindles old romances, reignites old resentments, and reveals new secrets… throwing our characters into chaotic drama that’s reminiscent of the past, but with a much more modern perspective.


Filming isn’t done and there’s no network attached yet, but hopefully someone will pick it up. Locklear is one of the most iconic television actresses of the last 40 years, so it’ll be great to see her bitching it up again every week. I’ve coincidentally been re-watching every episode of Melrose over the last couple years (I’m up to season 5 now, which is when most of the original cast leaves, sadly), and they always gave Amanda the best lines. A couple of her fights with Alison are below:
