There's a king of the castle at Franklin & Bash — or should we say queen?

Heather Locklear is joining the TNT lawyer dramedy for Season 3 as a new series regular named Rachel King, Entertainment Weekly reports. King, a new partner at the firm, is described as "a stunning trial lawyer, with stiletto heels and clothes tailored within an inch of their life."

Garcelle Beauvais not returning to Franklin & Bash for Season 3

Locklear, 51, enters the series following the departure of Garcelle Beauvais, who played Hanna Linden, a senior partner at the Infeld Daniels firm during the first two seasons.

This will be Locklear's first series regular gig since NBC's short-lived drama LAX in 2004. She also starred on Spin City and recurred heavily on the original Melrose Place for most of the soap's seven-year run. She guest-starred on the 2009 reboot and more recently on Hot in Cleveland.
