Laura Leighton is moving back to Melrose Place.
She will reprise her role as the scheming Sydney Andrews on the CW's new version of the show.
In the dramatic 1997 fifth-season Melrose finale and Leighton's last episode on the show -- Sydney was hit by a car on her wedding day in a near-fatal accident.
Turns out, she did not die and is now reportedly the landlord to the new crop of tenants, who include Katie Cassidy as Ella; Jessica Lucas as Riley; Ashlee Simpson-Wentz as Violet; Michael Rady as Jonah; Colin Egglesfield as Auggie; Shaun Sipos as David, and Stephanie Jacobsen as Lauren.
They begin shooting the pilot next week.
