The network has just confirmed that Heather Locklear will reprise her role as scheming vixen Amanda Woodward on Melrose Place.

Heather joined the show as a special guest star in 1993, and she stayed with the hit series until it ended in 1999. Executive producers Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer issued the following statement: "We're ecstatic to have the chance to bring Amanda Woodward back to Melrose Place. 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."

Her first appearance is set for the November 17 episode, so who knows what will happen with her character and the new cast, which includes Ashlee Simpson and breakout star Katie Cassidy. We'll be watching, that's for sure!
