- Page 1

Once upon a time, long before Regina George terrorized her schoolmates at North Shore High School in the film Mean Girls, there was another clique that everyone referred to whenever the topic of mean high school girls came up: The Heathers.

In 1988, Winona Ryder, Shannen Doherty, Lisanne Falk, and Kim Walker starred in the dark comedy Heathers, which tells the story of a popular girl name Veronica Sawyer, who is unhappy about being a part of a feared clique made up of three other girls, each named Heather. She meets a psychopathic new boy, Jason Dean (Christian Slater), and shortly after, her popular classmates begin to die one at a time.

The film wasn't exactly a box office hit when it was released, but it worked its way up to cult-classic status over the years, and now, it's getting rebooted as a television show.

The reboot was confirmed in March 2016, and a year later, it was revealed that actress Selma Blair has been cast for a recurring role in the series, and that one of the original Heathers, Shannen Doherty, will guest star.

In August 2017, a preview of the upcoming series was released, and it featured Grace Victoria Cox as Veronica Sawyer, James Scully as J.D., Melanie Field as Heather Chandler, Brendan Scannell as Heather Duke, and Jasmine Mathews as Heather McNamara.

The clip also showed us that some aspects of the original will be incorporated into the show (it is still NSFW), but the newest official trailer tells us that there are many other details that won't be the same.

Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more.

We've all been there, the mall with our moms impatiently waiting to go to the toy section. She wants us to buy some new pants for school because we tore three holes in them last week. She says you have to try things on because you are growing too fast and she isn't sure what size you are, but honestly, there is nothing you want to do less than that.
