Melrose Place is the latest ’90s series coming back for a reboot, and many of its original stars will return for another ride. Heather Locklear, Laura Leighton, and Daphne Zuniga are all attached to star in the next chapter of the beloved 90s soap opera.

The new version of Melrose Place hails from writer Lauren Gussis (Insatiable), and it will pick up years after the original series, created by Darren Star. The reboot will reunite us with the beloved characters from the original series, but one of whom may no longer be with us.

The new version will see the original residents of Melrose Place gather together to honor the memory of one of their dearest friends, who suddenly passed away.

“The pressure cooker of a reunion soon uncovers old traumas, rekindles old romances, reignites old resentments, and reveals new secrets… throwing our characters into chaotic drama that’s reminiscent of the past, but with a much more modern perspective,” reads the show’s official logline.

Heather Locklear, Laura Leighton, and Daphne Zuniga will return as their fan-favorite characters Amanda Woodward, Sydney Andrews, and Jo Reynolds, and they’ll also be credited as executive producers. They were a part of the cast of the original Melrose Place, which ran on Fox between 1992 and 1992 and went down in history as one of the flagship 90s soap operas.
