Melrose Place reunion details

Melrose Place is making a comeback and bringing a few familiar faces including Laura Leighton and Thomas Calabro.

Laura Leighton is returning to her old Melrose Place addressLeighton and Calabro join Ashlee Simpson as cast members already announced. This Melrose Place reunion is sounding pretty fine and it gets us thinking. 

It's always fun when a hit show, check that one that was must-see TV is coming back to the small screen. Remember the episode when Marcia Cross took off her wig? Or how about the on-screen chemistry between Jack Wagner and Heather Locklear? Ah, ode to Melrose Place.The actress who played Sydney is returning (remember her sis, Jane? Memories!) and this just in: Dr. Michael Mancini will also be returning. Thomas Calabro will reprise his role as the good guy into scum bucket character. Laura Leighton will reprise her role as Sydney Andrews to become the landlord of Melrose while Dr. Mancini will return to be the father of David Patterson who will be played by Shaun Sipos.As for cast members who will not be returning?

Heather Locklear. We'd love to see Andrew Shue, Courtney Thorne-Smith and hey, even Kristin Davis back on set so it'll be interesting to see what other characters make a cameo. You may recall Melrose Place was originally a spin-off from 90210 when Kelly Taylor had a thing going with Jake. So it's terribly fascinating that first 90210 gets a redo then Melrose Place. Guess that old adage is true...everything old is new again.

Suffice it to say, a resurrection of Melrose Place will bring back old fans and new ones alike! We can't wait.
