Nicollette Sheridan, who plays Alexis Carrington on the CW reboot of DYNASTY, is leaving the show. The CW released a statement regarding the 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.” The role of Alexis may be recast. Sheridan released a statement as well, “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.”
