Heather Locklear reprises her role as Amanda Woodward on 'Melrose Place'
The "special guest star" is back.
As expected, The CW announced this morning that Heather Locklear is joining "Melrose Place" for multiple episodes. The actress will reprise her role as scheming ad executive Amanda Woodward beginning Nov. 17
In a statement, executive producers Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer said they were "ecstatic" about the deal. "Heather's involvement in the show is something we've been working on for some time as we couldn't imagine creating and producing this show without the iconic character's inclusion."
Locklear will be joining a cast that already includes original "Melrose" stars Laura Leighton and Thomas Calabro. Josie Bissett and Daphne Zuniga will also be back as guest stars.
