“He’s a teenage Charles Manson.” Paramount has released a new trailer for their upcoming TV show Heathers.
Based on the 1988 film, the dark comedy will be set in the present day and follow Veronica Sawyer (Grace Victoria Cox), a girl dealing with her own group of vicious Heathers. The cast also includes Brendan Scannell, James Scully, Melanie Field, Jasmine Mathews, and original movie star Shannen Doherty.
Heathers debuts on Paramount Network on March 7th at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Watch the trailer below:
What do you think? Are you a fan of the 1980s movie Heathers? Will you watch the TV series?
It looks like this will be a remake which will make concessions to millennium culture [i.e. one of the Heathers is a gay boy]. Makes perfect sense since the original was a cult classic and made its imprint on everything from “Mean Girls” to “MAGA”. I’m assuming that Doherty will goof on her old character, perhaps turn out to be the mother of one of the new Heathers or possibly Veronica. I just hope there will be room for Winona and Christen.
