Nov. 28 (UPI) — “Desperate Housewives” and “Knots Landing” icon Nicollette Sheridan is set to play the role of Alexis Carrington in The CW’s re-boot of “Dynasty.”

Starring Elizabeth Gillies, Nathalie Kelley, James Mackay, Sam Adegoke, Robert Christopher Riley, Rafael de la Fuente, Alan Dale and Grant Show, the new version of the nighttime soap has been airing on Wednesdays since October.

“Alexis Carrington is the first wife of Blake Carrington and mother to Fallon and Steven,” a press release said. “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.”

Joan Collins played Alexis on the original “Dynasty,” which ran 1981-89.
