Bad news for Melrose Place fans: Jessica Lucas, who plays Riley Richmond on the show, has been cast on NBC's Friends with Benefits, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The comedy from the writers of (500) Days of Summer is about friends looking for love. The cast also includes Fran Kranz (Dollhouse) and Danneel Harris (One Tree Hill). Does this mean Melrose is officially done for? No announcement has been made yet by the CW about a second season, but it certainly doesn't look good at the moment. Source Here
