Melrose Place 2.0 updates and other spoilers

Melrose PlaceHappy or not that The CW will air a new version of Melrose Place, you must admit that you'll at least watch the premiere out of curiosity, especially if you watched the first show.

Tidbits about the show released these past weeks will have viewers tune in to know how the show will revive Sydney, a very much dead character played by Laura Leighton on the original series.

If that mystery is not enough to get you to tune in on Tuesday, September 8 at 9 p.m., maybe the new spoilers and casting information below will.

Warning! Spoilers coming up!

The first thing you should do, if you haven't yet, is watch the extended preview below that TVSquadder Bob posted about a month ago. The preview presents the main characters and, as Bob pointed out, the abundance of sex, drugs, parties, fast cars, loose women, backstabbing, affairs, and loud music that the new series will feature.



For fans of the original Melrose Place, the important parts of this preview is that Sydney is back in town and seems to be as bitchy as before. Michael is back, too, and his older son David, who lives at the Melrose Place apartment building, hooked up with Sydney to get back at his father. Ooh ... backstabbing, lies and sex, three main reasons why we loved the first show.

The preview didn't show much of Michael, who is set to be a recurring character, but considering the type of car he drives and the fact that he threw his son out of the car, my guess is that Michael hasn't changed much and may be the womanizing, powerful ass he was before. Oh, and as always, Michael will be surrounded by beautiful ladies such as new wife Vanessa to be played for a multi-episode arc by Brooke Burns. Vanessa is also the mother of Michael's younger son, Noah.

It is unknown at this time who is David's mother. However, executive producer Darren Swimmer confirms that David was born before Melrose 1.0 began. Unsurprisingly considering Michael's life style, David is the product of a one-night-stand. Michael always knew of David's existence but wasn't involved since the mother never asked for a dime. Things changed when she became terminally ill and asked Michael to take care of their son after she dies. That explains why father and son don't seem to be best buds in the previews.

Want more of the original Melrose Place actors to pop up in version 2.0? Well, your wish will come true. Sadly, no Heather Locklear for now. But Daphne Zuniga and Josie Bissett will both guest star in upcoming episodes. Zuniga will reprise her role of photographer Jo Reynolds in at least two episodes.

Melrose Place 2.0 viewers should keep an eye on Ashlee Simpson-Wentz's character Violet because there is definitely something mysterious going on with her. As hinted by the preview, med-school student Lauren, played by Stephanie Jacobsen, will become a high-class call girl in order to pay her bills. Nip/Tuck's Kelly Carlson has been recruited to play the recurring role of a woman who will lure Lauren to the prostitution ring. If you've seen Carlson as Kimber on Nip/Tuck, it is not too difficult to imagine her as the leader of a prostitution ring, eh?

The second episode will introduce David's ex-girlfriend to be played by Taylor Cole. Singer-actress Taryn Manning will play a singer whose music video is being directed by Jonah in the third episode.

If you want more clues and hints about Melrose Place 2.0, I suggest you check out the three posters found at The Hollywood Reporter and the teaser video below. Oh, and word on the street is that the bloody body in the Melrose Place pool is ... Sydney! As you can see, 4616 Melrose Place is still the most scandalous address in Hollywood!

I hate when shows that I'd rather jab a rusty fork into my eye than watch hire actors I enjoy (Carlson). Although I doubt whoever this character is she won't be as good as Kimber.
