Hollywood Crush has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Announcing its fall schedule yesterday, The CW made it official: “Melrose Place” is no more. Ella, Jonah, Riley and the rest of the apartment-complex dwellers were laid to rest as “One Tree Hill” was called back for its eighth season.

But the Melrosers had so much potential! Alkie Auggie and deranged Violet (I stand by my claim that Ashlee Simpson-Wentz didn’t totally suck) rode off into sunset, leaving a great core cast of characters to work, play and engage in illegal activities in the city of Angels. “Life in Reverse” was finally being made with Jonah at the director’s helm, Ella bitch-slapped Amanda into the Feds waiting arms and Drew was about to die any minute. Yes, Riley and her “morals” were a little tedious, but it at least created some balance against Lauren’s prostitution gig.

When we talked with "Melrose Place" actress Ashlee Simpson-Wentz earlier this month, we couldn't help but wonder aloud whether catty Amanda Woodward (a.k.a. Heather Locklear) would be moving back into the drama-filled apartment complex. Well, our wish has been granted. According to a press release from The CW: "The bitch is back"! (That seems to be quite the popular phrase to be using on TV this fall, doesn't it?)

Heather will begin her stint with the November 17 episode, though the statement did not indicate how many episodes she would be appearing in.

“We’re ecstatic to have the chance to bring Amanda Woodward back to ‘Melrose Place,’” said executive producers Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer. “Heather’s involvement in the show is something we’ve been working on for some time as we couldn’t imagine creating and producing this show without the iconic character’s inclusion.”

It's almost move-in day for the residents of L.A.'s most infamous apartment complex. The CW's reboot of '90s soap "Melrose Place" premieres Tuesday, Sept. 8, with a slew of fresh faces including Katie Cassidy ("Harper's Island" ), Michael Rady ("Greek," "Swingtown"), Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and this week's Hump Day Hottie Colin Egglesfield ("All My Children").

Fans of the original series need not fret though, since many of your favorite characters will also be returning. Josie Bissett will reprise her role as Jane Andrews, Daphne Zuniga will step into Jo Reynolds' shoes again, Thomas Calabro will be back as Dr. Michael Mancini and the father of David (Shaun Sipos) and Laura Leighton (a.k.a Sydney Andrews) now runs the show as the landlord of Melrose Place.
