Melrose Place returning too!?


Had a feeling this would happen….

Everyone’s favourite – well, it was definitely mine; I still remember racing home from work, which just happened to be a radio station, on Tuesday nights to watch the weekly going’s on at the wildest apartment block this side of, well, ”Number 96” – guilty pleasure of the box back in the 90s was “Melrose Place”. And it might just be again.

Due to the success of the revived “90210”, Variety says Paramount and The CW are said to be looking at relaunching the spin-off, too

It probably goes without saying that, like the new “90210”, this too will feature a brand new cast. Like the former though, they might also decide to bring back a couple of familiar faces to filament the original and new version together. How about Thomas Calabro? Maybe even Heather Locklear could return? (after all, she hasn’t had much success with her other ventures in recent years, “Spin City” withstanding) or maybe someone can track down Andrew Shue via GoogleMaps? Try the soccer fields, that’d be a good place to start.

“Melrose Place” ran on Fox from 1992-99 and turned into a hit sudser after Locklear joined the cast as the scheming Amanda Woodward. The series was also the launching pad for the careers of Grant Show, Calabro, Shue, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Josie Bissett, Laura Leighton, Doug Savant and Kristin Davis (who went on to star on HBO’s phenomenally-successful “Sex and the City”).

Numerous names guest-starred on the series over its 7 year run including porn star Traci Lords, Gina Gershon, Denise Richards, Julie Newman, Linda Gray (whose character was spun-off into another series, “Model’s Inc”), Shirley Jones and Sean Lennon.

Here’s a refresher for those too young to remember when “Tuesday Nights [were] a Bitch!”
