‘Heathers’ Is Returning to a Small Screen Near You in the Most Brilliant Way

Well f**k us gently with a chainsaw.

Heathers, your favorite cult classic film from the late-80’s, is on its way back into the limelight via TV Land. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Viacom’s TV network will be repurposing the black comedy to fit into the schema of present day and will feature a new set of Heathers to reprise the iconic roles from the original, except this time the outcasts will be on top.

THR reports:

“Heather McNamara (originally played by Lisanne Falk) is a black lesbian; Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty) is a male who identifies as gender-queer whose real name is Heath; and Heather Chandler (Kim Walker) has a body like Martha Dumptruck”


The anthology spinoff will allegedly work in the same way as FX’s Fargo, in that it will feature a new cast each season.
