TVLine Items: Dynasty's Melrose Place Reunion, Chad Goes Missing and More

Melrose Place Zuniga Show

The CW’s Dynasty reboot will host a small OG Melrose Place reunion, when Daphne Zuniga guest-stars in the Friday, April 29 episode.

Per our sister site Variety, Zuniga will play Sonya Jackson, a woman from Blake’s (fellow Melrose alum Grant Show) past who stirs things up for the Carrington clan.

Zuniga last fall reunited with former Melrose Place neighbors Josie Bissett and Laura Leighton in an episode of Fox’s Fantasy Island reboot. I’m sensing a theme…?
