Officially, the Heathers reboot doesn’t premiere on the Paramount Network, formerly known as Spike, until March 7. However, the network has been kind enough to share the first episode early. What a great way to kick off the weekend.
Heathers is an hour-long pitch-black comedy anthology set in the present day, based on the 1988 cult classic film of the same name. The much-anticipated reboot perfectly blends drama, love, rivalry, and comedy into a modern-day masterpiece. It 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. Selma Blair, Drew Droege and original Heather Shannen Doherty also makes appearances. Speaking of Doherty, she along with Scannell announced via Instagram the early premiere. Watch it below.
Since a Heathers reboot has been in the works for years and several networks including FOX and Bravo have tried, I wasn’t expecting much. Boy was I wrong. It’s great. To check out the pilot episode, head over to the Paramount Network website.
