The first season of , the CW’s surprising success story, is coming to a close. In the final two episodes of the season, the entire cast will carouse at the West Beverly Hills High School Prom.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, The CW, Gossip,

Laura LeightonSorry, Lisa Rinna. It doesn’t look like your services will be needed anytime soon.

They might not have been able to secure Heather Locklear for their Melrose Place reboot, but the CW has just resurrected someone from the dead. Ashlee-Simpson Wentz will now be checking in with another redhead - veteran Laura Leighton - when it comes time to pay the rent.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the actress who played the deliciously bad Sydney Andrews from 1993-97 will be brought on as the update’s landlord. This despite Sydney’s supposed death by car at the end of Season 5. (You can see that clip after the jump.) There’s been no word as to how she will suddenly reappear after being MIA from the program’s last two seasons. (Ooh - will she be secretly hiding a scar under her wig like Kimberly?)

Andrews, like Kelly Taylor on 90210, is being listed as a recurring character.

No Melrose Place for Heather Locklear

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, The CW, Gossip,

Heather LocklearIf CW was hoping to give a big name boost to its remake, the network will have to try a bit harder.

Although many were counting on an appearance from , the newbies will just have to do without Amanda Woodward. According to Entertainment Weekly, the FOX veteran decided against joining the series. An insider claims there simply “wasn’t a way to bring her back that made sense.” (I didn’t realize that was a requirement for CW’s reboots.)

As disappointing as this news might be, the network should not give up hope. Heather might not be interested in carrying the show once again, but there’s at least one other vet who’s willing to try: Lisa Rinna. The former Days of Our Lives star told E! Online back in January that she’s “available” to resurrect her old character (Taylor McBride) at any time. Yippee!

Those confirmed for the cast so far include Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, Jessica Lucas (90210), Michael Rady (Swingtown), and Katie Cassidy (Supernatural).

Spinoff News: Gossip Girl, The L Word, NCIS

Gossip GirlGossip Girl

: Apparently when executive producer Josh Schwartz said back in June that there were “no plans for spinoff at this moment,” what he really meant was: “We aren’t planning anything for Jenny Humphrey.”

After months of speculation, CW finally announced that they will be creating a backdoor pilot for what could possibly be a spinoff. (This would be similar to what Shonda Rhimes did with Private Practice.) If the test run is successful, the new series would not involve any actors from the sophomore show, nor would it even be located in New York.
