Edie, who was played by Nicolette Sheridan, was killed off during season five, but producer Bob Daily has now revealed that he is searching for a possible replacement.
"We agree that [Edie] was a great person to have on The Lane," he told Zap2It. "The sort of vixen troublemaker. That's a great person to have on a television show."
Daily explained that the character will appear in a few episodes this year, but may become a recurring part of the next season.
However, he added that he does not want a "Nicolette clone", saying: "I think Nicolette was so great as that sort of blonde bombshell. I think we'd probably not go in that direction again just because we've had that."
