Sheridan set as Alexis on Dynasty reboot

Soap vet Nicolette Sheridan is set to play the iconic role of Alexis Carrington – Blake Carrington’s first missus – in the “Dynasty” reboot.  Joan Collins played the role in the original.  No word on when Sheridan makes her debut in the series – currently airing Wednesdays on The CW – but it’s likely to be before the show goes on hiatus before the Christmas break.

November 28, 2017 (Burbank, CA) – Nicollette Sheridan (“Desperate Housewives,” “Knots Landing”) has been cast as Alexis Carrington in DYNASTY on The CW. Alexis Carrington is the first wife of Blake Carrington and mother to Fallon and Steven. She will return unexpectedly to their world, challenging Blake’s marriage to Cristal, seeking to reunite with her children, and fighting to claim what is hers.

DYNASTY airs Wednesdays, 9:00-10:00pm ET/PT on The CW.

Wealth, power, deception, and double-dealing… what does it take to build a dynasty? A modern re-imagining of the iconic primetime soap, centering on the powerful Carrington family as they defend their throne against the Colbys, new rivals and threats, and even each other. DYNASTY stars Elizabeth Gillies (“Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll”), Nathalie Kelley (“UnReal,” “The Vampire Diaries”), James Mackay (“The Leftovers”), Sam Adegoke (“Murder in the First”), Robert Christopher Riley (“Hit the Floor”) and Rafael de la Fuente (“Empire”), with Alan Dale (“The O.C.”), and Grant Show (“Melrose Place”).
