DYNASTY: Nicollette Sheridan to Play Alexis Carrington

Nicollette Sheridan (formerly of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) will be joining another primetime soap. Today The CW announced that Sheridan will be joining the cast as Alexis Carrington. “She will return unexpectedly to their world, challenging Blake’s marriage to Cristal, seeking to reunite with her children, and fighting to claim what is hers.”

Alexis was played by Joan Collins in the original DYNASTY series. The new DYNASTY is a modern adaptation of the show, with the Carrington family pitted against the Colby family and, at times, against one another. It is co-written by Josh Schwartz & Stephanie Savage and Sallie Patrick.

DYNASTY airs Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
