Since nostalgia is all the rage with TV shows today (Riverdale, Twin Peaks, Will & Grace), it should come as no surprise that Dynasty was recently picked for a modern-day reboot on the CW. The original had all the fashion, big hair, and catfights we could ask for. The new version has all that, plus gay sex.
But one thing that’s been missing from the reboot is the appearance of our favorite southern mama bear, Alexis Carrington. We can now clutch our pearls with the announcement that Nicollette Sheridan will step into the iconic shoulder pads passed down by Joan Collins. If anyone can pull off the catty rich bitch persona Collins made famous, we have faith in Sheridan, whose she-devil portrayal of Edie on Desperate Housewives appeared to come to life when she sued ABC for killing off her character.
Nicolette Sheridan is set to appear as Alexis Carrington in the last few episodes of the reboot’s first season.
