Nicollette Sheridan Exits “Dynasty”

Nicollette Sheridan in "Dynasty"

Now that’s what we call a Dynasty shocker!

Nicollette Sheridan has exited The CW’s Dynasty, which means that her reign as the scheming Alexis Carrington has come to an end. 

“Nicollette Sheridan will be leaving DYNASTY in order to focus on some personal family responsibilities,” said CBS Television Studios and The CW in a joint statement. “She was a valuable asset to the show, and we wish her continued success in the future.”

Sheridan first appeared as Carrington in the Dynasty reboot, a role made iconic in the ABC original by Joan Collins, midway through the first season. Dynasty was her first television role after her exit form Desperate Housewives in 2009. Her final appearance will be in March. 

TVLine was the first to report this news.
