Paramount Network is gearing up for the upcoming release of hour-long anthology reboot series, Heathers, with a new catty and drama-filled trailer that would make the original Heathers proud.
Whilst having the same dark tone as the original cult classic, the new version will move away from the three super-rich catty teenagers by introducing an overweight girl (Melanie Field), a black lesbian (Jasmine Mathews) and a gender-queer male (Brendan Scannell) hoping to speak to today’s generation of young adults and filling those much-needed diversity roles.
The trailer gives us a glimpse of the new teenage brats, ruling the school in a cruel and vicious manner and we even get a glimpse of an original Heather in the form of Shannon Doherty.
The show stars Grace Victoria Cox as Veronica Sawyer, James Scully as JD, Melanie Field as Heather Chandler, Brendan Scannell as Heather Duke, and Jasmine Mathews as Heather McNamara.
Heathers premieres March 7th on the Paramount Network.
