The actress, who played Jane Andrews Mancini on the original version, will reprise her role and join former castmates Thomas Calabro and Laura Leighton on the CW’s reboot of the popular nighttime drama, People reports.
Her part in the series is said to be limited to a guest star capacity in at least one episode.
Bissett portrayed the older sister of Leighton’s Sydney Andrews character and was the one-time wife of Calabro’s Dr Michael Mancini. She left the show in 1997, but returned for the final two seasons in 1998 and 1999.
Former co-star Andrew Shue, who played Billy Campbell, recently said that the update of the programme was not a good idea.
Melrose Place originally aired on the Fox network for seven seasons from 1992 to 1999, while the new format will debut on September 8 on the CW.
