It’s finally official —Heather Locklear returns to Melrose Place!

Amanda Woodward aka bodacious blonde Heather Locklear, 47 returns to the new re-do Melrose Place on the CW with the November 17th ep, reports.

Scheming ad boss Heather who made residents of Melrose squirm in their own day-glo scrunchies was last seen faking her own death in the 1999 finale of the original series.

"We’re ecstatic to have the chance to bring Amanda Woodward back to Melrose Place," show runners Todd Slavkin & Darren Swimmer (formerly of Smallville)  said.

"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."

The ENQUIRER first reported Heather was in talks to visit Melrose months ago, natch. Guess they finally made her a financial offer she couldn’t refuse.

Prior to Melrose, Locklear had been a regular on Bill Shatner cop show T.J. Hooker and glam soaper Dynasty.
