Had a feeling this would happenâ€¦.
Everyoneâ€™s favourite â€“ 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 goingâ€™s on at the wildest apartment block this side of, well, ”Number 96” â€“ guilty pleasure of the box back in the 90s was â€œMelrose Placeâ€. And it might just be again.
Due to the success of the revived â€œ90210â€, 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 â€œ90210â€, 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 hasnâ€™t had much success with her other ventures in recent years, â€œSpin Cityâ€ withstanding) or maybe someone can track down Andrew Shue via GoogleMaps? Try the soccer fields, thatâ€™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 HBOâ€™s phenomenally-successful â€œSex and the Cityâ€).
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, â€œModelâ€™s Incâ€), Shirley Jones and Sean Lennon.
Hereâ€™s a refresher for those too young to remember when â€œTuesday Nights [were] a Bitch!â€
