Iconic ‘Melrose Place’ Characters Set to Return in New Reboot

NOTE: This article is 2 months old and may not include the most recent information.

In exciting news for fans of the classic 90s series ‘Melrose Place,’ a reboot is currently in the works with three of the show’s original cast members attached to star. Heather Locklear, Laura Leighton, and Daphne Zuniga are set to reprise their iconic roles as Amanda Woodward, Sydney Andrews, and Jo Reynolds, respectively, in a new installment that promises to bring back the drama and intrigue that made the original series a hit.

The reboot, which is being developed by CBS Studios, will pick up years after the events of the original series and will provide an update on the beloved characters’ lives. The story will be set in motion when one of their dearest friends dies suddenly, prompting the original residents of Melrose Place to gather and honor the deceased. However, this reunion will soon uncover old traumas, rekindle past romances, reignite old resentments, and reveal new secrets, throwing the characters into a chaotic drama reminiscent of the past, but with a modern twist.

The series is being written by Lauren Gussis, creator and executive producer of the Netflix/CBS Studios series ‘Insatiable.’ Gussis will also executive produce alongside Laura Leighton, Daphne Zuniga, Tiffany Grant, and Jason Weinberg. CBS Studios, which owns the rights to the original series, will produce the reboot.

‘Melrose Place’ originally aired for seven seasons from 1992 to 1999 and was a spin-off of the popular series ‘Beverly Hills, 90210.’ Both shows were created by Darren Star and produced by Aaron Spelling’s Spelling Television for Fox. The series followed the lives of a group of young adults living in an apartment complex on Melrose Place in the West Hollywood area of Los Angeles.

While Locklear, Leighton, and Zuniga are the only confirmed cast members at this time, it is expected that more original cast members will join the project if it moves forward. The reboot is currently being shopped to various networks and streaming platforms, including Fox, the original series’ home network.

This is not the first time CBS Studios has revisited the world of ‘Melrose Place.’ In 2009, the studio produced a short-lived revival for The CW, which featured a new group of characters and guest appearances by some of the original cast members, including Locklear, Leighton, and Zuniga.

As the project continues to develop, fans of the original series can look forward to the prospect of seeing their favorite characters back on screen, dealing with new challenges and drama in a modern setting. With the involvement of key original cast members and a promising creative team, the ‘Melrose Place’ reboot has the potential to recapture the magic that made the original series a beloved classic.
