Adding another hat to their roles, Leighton and Zuniga will also serve as executive producers for the revival, joined by Tiffany Grant and Jason Weinberg.

Evolution of the Cast and The Search For a Home

The original “Melrose Place”, much like its sibling show “Beverly Hills, 90210”, was known for its evolving roster of actors throughout its run. Names like Thomas Calabro, Josie Bissett, Doug Savant, Grant Show, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Rob Estes, Brooke Langton, Lisa Rinna, and Alyssa Milano graced the screens over the years.

As CBS Studios own the Spelling library, the revived series will be a CBS Studios property. The show is in its development stage and is currently being shopped around to various networks and streaming services, in search of the ideal broadcast home.

In Celebration of a Phenomenon

The original “Melrose Place” was borne out of 1990's hit “Beverly Hills, 90210”, both the brainchild of producer Aaron Spelling and TV creator Darren Star. Its narrative allowed viewers in millions of homes to follow the lives of the residents at a West Beverly . As Spelling explored more adult-themed narratives, “Melrose Place” came into existence, crossing over stars from “Beverly Hills, 90210” like Dylan and Kelly who became friends with Melrose resident Jake. The show's popularity soared with the addition of Heather Locklear to the cast.

The news of a “Melrose Place” revival first appeared on the website JoBlo. The site's speculative question to the audience—”Do you think Melrose Place will secure a revival or not? And if so, will you enjoy it?”—elicits high hopes for fans of the original series. We can only wait, hope, and speculate till the official confirmation. Until then, “Melrose Place” remains an iconic part of television history worth back at.
