Nicollette Sheridan (“Desperate Housewives,” “Knots Landing”) has been cast as Alexis Carrington in the revival of “Dynasty” on The CW. Played by Joan Collins in the original, Alexis is the first wife of Blake Carrington and mother to Fallon and Steven. 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. Now let’s see if Sheridan can “save” this version of “Dynasty” just as Collins did for the original version on ABC.
“Dynasty” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
