‘Melrose Place’ Gets Rewatch Podcast As ‘Charmed’ Audio Show Gets Reboot

As a Melrose Place reboot is in the works at CBS, the original series is getting a new audio boost.

Three of the show’s original stars Daphne Zuniga, Laura Leighton and Courtney Thorne-Smith are launching a rewatch podcast of the Fox drama.

More from Deadline

Still The Place launched today, on the 32nd anniversary of the show’s launch. It comes from iHeartPodcasts.

Leighton, who played Sydney Andrews, Thorne-Smith, who played Alison Parker and Zuniga, who played Jo Reynolds will dissect each episode from the very beginning, share behind-the-scenes stories and interview special guests from the original cast and crew.

It comes after Deadline revealed in April that a reboot featuring Leighton and Zuniga, as well as Heather Locklear, was in the works at CBS Studios and was being shopped to networks and streamers.

The reboot is being written by Lauren Gussis, creator/executive producer on the Netflix/CBS Studios series Insatiable, and will pick up years after the original series, created by Darren Star.

Locklear, Leighton and Zuniga, reprised their roles in guest starring appearances on The CW revival in 2009, which revolved around a new group of 20-30-somethings living on Melrose Place. The new reboot is expected to draw from the original series and not the follow-up where Leighton’s character was murdered.

Elsewhere, in rewatch podcast news, The House of Halliwell: A Charmed Rewatch Podcast is being reboot and added to the iHeartPodcasts stable.

The audio show previously ran for two seasons, backed by Patreon, but will now start again at the top of Charmed with Shannen Doherty as co-host.

Doherty, who played Prue Halliwell on The WB drama, will join Holly Marie Combs, Drew Fuller and Brian Krause, who hosted the first two seasons.
