The CW series was renewed for season three but it looks like there is an exit already! Dynasty star Nicollette Sheridan has decided to leave the TV show in a shocking turn of events!
Nicollette, who is also known for her Desperate Housewives role, became a regular on Dynasty in season two. She played the character of Alexis Carrington.
But now, the CW and CBS Television Studios announced that she will no longer be part of the storyline.
This following statement about her exit was released: ‘Nicollette Sheridan will be leaving Dynasty in order to focus on some personal family responsibilities. She was a valuable asset to the show and we wish her continued success in the future.’
The actress took on the role that was originally played by Joan Collins in the original Dynasty.
But her exit is only the latest out of a series of such shakeups.
As fans may know, Nathalie Kelley and James Mackay have also left the show.
At this time, it is yet unknown what the screenwriters will do with her character.
The star has also released a statement regarding her departure via TVLine.
‘Working on the Dynasty reboot and reprising the iconic role of Alexis has been thoroughly enjoyable, but the chance to spend precious time with my terminally ill mother is more important to me right now,’ Sheridan explained.
She went on to state that ‘I am grateful to Mark Pedowitz (The CW) and David Stapf (CBS) for allowing me to return to Los Angeles to be with her, and I wish them and everyone associated with the show nothing but success. I am hopeful that my fans will embrace my successor with as much passion as they embraced me.’
