Looks Like That Heathers TV Series Will Go on Air After All
Though it’ll be airing as a “5 night binge event” and is being touted as highly “controversial” (apparently, it will also have major edits and combined the penultimate episode and season finale into one ep.), the Heathers reboot/TV adaptation is going on TV after all on The Paramount Network.
It’ll start airing on October 25th. If there is another major school shooting between now and the end of their “binge event” (which, very sadly, could happen), we’ll be curious to see what Paramount does this time around.

Though the tone may relatively be the same, the TV adaption for Heathers is definitely made to be as timely as possibly can be (there is a Shannen Doherty cameo for you nostalgia obsessives out there). Combined with Waco, the newly minted Paramount Network isn’t off to a bad start at all.
See for yourself in the series first full trailer, which is thankfully uncensored as it’s “red band”, here.
Look for the premiere of Heathers on Wednesday, March 7th on the Paramount Network.
Here’s What a Modern Day, TV Version of “Heathers” Looks Like
The original dark cult comedy Heathers hit theaters nearly 30 years ago in 1988.
TV Land has rebooted and adapted Heathers for the small screen and given it a very current day update to the look and feel (the original is very much a product of the 80s FYI). That being said, the tone of dark humor and salty language seems to be quite intact.
See for yourself in the teaser.
Heathers comes to TV Land next year.
