Another Dynasty star is flying the coop. TVLine reports Nicollette Sheridan is leaving the CW TV show after two seasons.
A reboot of the ’80s primetime soap, the drama series centers on the wealthy Carrington family and the energy empire they must defend against the Colbys and other adversaries, as well as each other. The cast also includes Grant Show, Alan Dale, Elizabeth Gillies, James Mackay, Sam Adegoke, Robert Christopher Riley, Rafael de la Fuente, Ana Brenda Contreras, and Maddison Brown.
Sheridan is far from the first star to leave the reboot. Last season, Nathalie Kelley and James Mackay exited the TV show.
You can read Sheridan’s full statement below:
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.”
From The CW:
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.”
