A new version of ‘Melrose Place’ is in the works. Three well-known figures from the popular 90s series, which attracted one million viewers every week on VTM, are already participating.

‘Melrose Place’, about a number of twenty-somethings living in an apartment complex on Melrose Avenue, was not initially a big television hit. Until TV producer Darren Star decided after 15 episodes to use Dynasty star Heather Locklear as schemer Amanda Woodward. Then the series suddenly became a huge hit internationally. In addition to Locklear, who is the driving force behind the reboot, Laura Leighton (Sydney Andrews) and Daphne Zuniga (Jo Reynolds) are also on board. The plans, which are being developed by CBS Studios, are currently being visited by channels and streaming services.

It is notable that ‘Melrose Place’ received a less than successful reboot in 2009, but the new version would expand on the original, which ran from 1992 to 1999. The series would start with one of the well-known characters who has died, and the former apartment residents from the 1990s who come together again for a commemoration. But at that meeting, old traumas are stirred up again, old romances are rekindled, and so on. Leighton and Zuniga would also serve as executive producers.

The series was a spin-off of Beverly Hills 90210, Darren Star’s other success and produced by Aaron Spelling, Tori Spelling’s dad. Melrose Place ran for seven years and 227 episodes. Even more old acquaintances would participate, but who is still a secret. Alyssa Milano (Charmed) and Kristin Davis (Sex and the City), among others, participated in the original series.
