The reunion miniseries brought back former cast members William Devane, Kevin Dobson, Michele Lee, Donna Mills, Ted Shackelford, Joan Van Ark, Michelle Phillips and Stacy Galina. It also included cameo appearances by former cast members Tonya Crowe, Brian Austin Green, Claudia Lonow, and Kim Lankford.
The reunion was met with mixed reviews. Key cast member Nicollette Sheridan initially refused to appear, and then only agreed to a brief scene. A video tape of the Laura Avery-Sumner character's message to her family (recorded before her death ten years earlier) was re-dubbed with another actress' voice as Constance McCashin, who played Laura, refused to let the clip of her voice be used.
