Locklear will make her debut appearance Nov. 17 on the prime-time soap. The revived "Melrose Place" premiered earlier this month.
The 47-year-old Locklear joined the original "Melrose Place" in 1993, at the end of the first season. She stayed throughout the series' seven-year run on the Fox network. As Amanda, she was the ruthless head of the D&D advertising agency.
Before "Melrose," Locklear had been a regular on the cop show "T.J. Hooker" and the glamorous melodrama "Dynasty." She later co-starred with Michael J. Fox on the sitcom "Spin City."
She will now be joining original "Melrose" castmates Laura Leighton, Thomas Calabro, Josie Bisset and Daphne Zuniga in the CW's updated version.
No details were released on how many appearances Locklear will make on the series.
