Fox drama trio to return

'Melrose,' '90210' and 'Party' re-up

Fox Broadcasting Co. has confirmed that “Melrose Place” and “Beverly Hills, 90210” will return next season, and the network has renewed the drama “Party of Five” for the next two seasons.

All three series renewals were expected, although the “Party of Five” negotiation was a tough one for Fox. Columbia TriStar TV was able to double the series license fee to about $2 million an episode and to get a probable weekend syndication sale to the Fox O&Os (Daily Variety, Feb. 20).

Columbia said the entire cast of “Party of Five” is under contract for the next two seasons, although the studio’s deal with executive producers and co-creators Christopher Keyser and Amy Lippman is set to expire later this year.

The return of Spelling TV’s “Melrose Place” for a seventh season was ensured after Heather Locklear reupped for another year. However, several actors will not be returning to “Melrose Place,” including Andrew Shue, Alyssa Milano, Lisa Rinna, Brooke Langton and Linden Ashby.

“Beverly Hills, 90210” also may see some cast changes, although Tiffani-Amber Thiessen has reupped for the first seven episodes and has an option to do more.
