Another day, another Dynasty shakeup. The CW series, which was already renewed for a third season, is saying goodbye to another cast member: Nicollette Sheridan.
Sheridan, a veteran of Desperate Housewives, joined the cast as Alexis Carrington as a series regular in season two of the nighttime soap. The CW and CBS Television Studios released the following statement about her exit: "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."
In the Dynasty reboot, Sheridan took on the iconic role originated by Joan Collins in the original. Her exit comes after the departures of Nathalie Kelley and James Mackay. No word on what will happen to her character.
Sheridan released a statement to TVLine following her exit announcement.
"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. I am profoundly grateful to Mark Pedowitz (The CW) and David Stapf (CBS) for graciously allowing me to return to Los Angeles to be with her, and I wish them and everyone associated with the show nothing but continued success. I am hopeful that my fans will embrace my successor with as much passion as they embraced me," she said.
Sheridan's exit is just the latest to rock a popular TV show. See more below.
Dynasty airs Fridays, 8 p.m. on The CW.
