‘Melrose Place’ Reboot Starring Heather Locklear, Laura Leighton & Daphne Zuniga In The Works


Apparently TV can’t get enough “Melrose Place.” The campy sudser from the 1990s, which was already rebooted once in the 2010s, is looking to make another comeback — and this time with three of the OG stars.

A revival of the Fox primetime soap Melrose Place is in the works, our sister site Deadline reports, with cast members Heather Locklear, Laura Leighton and Daphne Zuniga set to reprise their roles. The project is currently being shopped to networks and streamers.


The new series, written by Lauren Gussis (Insatiable), would pick up years after the original Melrose Place, with the former residents reuniting “when one of their dearest friends dies suddenly.” But the 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,” per the official description.


One of TV’s hottest addresses is getting a fresh coat of paint.

The original Melrose Place — a spinoff of Beverly Hills, 90210 — debuted on Fox in 1992 and became a buzzy hit, following the scandalous antics of the hot young residents of a Los Angeles apartment complex. Locklear was a breakout star as ruthless advertising boss Amanda Woodward, while Leighton played Jane’s sister Sydney and Zuniga played photographer Jo. The Season 1 cast also included Josie Bissett, Andrew Shue, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Grant Show, Thomas Calabro and Doug Savant. (Deadline reports that “more original cast members are expected to join” the revival “if it comes to fruition.”)


Melrose Place was later rebooted by The CW in 2009 with a new cast, and Locklear, Leighton and Zuniga all made guest appearances to reprise their roles. The reboot was cancelled after just one season, however.
