The Place Is Back! Is Amanda?

Melrose Place rumors are flying that original cast member Heather Locklear is joining the CW remake cast.

Will Heather Locklear return to Melrose Place?If you recall the '90s, you remember Amanda Woodward, Michael Mancini and oh yes, her on-screen flame, Dr Peter Burns. Melrose Place fans, it's time to rejoice!

The news from the Melrose Place set is that Heather Locklear, the ultimate evening drama vixen, may be reprising her original role as the show returns to primetime in September.

The CW version of Melrose Place will premiere this fall and has already snagged former cast mates Laura Leighton, Thomas Calabro, Josie Bissett and Daphne Zuniga.

Let's not forget some of the other stellar Melrose Place cast members who have come before: Kristin Davis prior to becoming Charlotte on Sex and the City and Andrew Shue.

While the original show was a spin-off from Beverly Hills 90210 it's like deja vu all over again.

After all, 90210 is also back in primetime -- also on the CW -- as it captures viewers nostalgic for the old show along with millions of fans from a significantly younger demographic.

Although both the CW and Locklear's spokesperson have not commented on the speculated negotiations, it seems Hollywood has been hinting the actress would have a home back at Melrose.

In fact, in the beginning of the summer, the executive producer of the CW version of the show said they're huge fans of Locklear's. However, it's not completely a no brainer -- alums from the original show are being invited back on the premise to see if their characters would actually fit into the story lines.

As the drama plays out in real life as to whether or not she's been cast, life imitates art as Locklear currently dates Jack Wagner, aka D. Peter Burns from yes, you guessed it: Melrose Place.
