“Heathers” Plans Scrapped & Shopped Elsewhere

In late February, Paramount Network delayed the premiere of the “Heathers” TV series reboot that was to kick off on March 7th. The delay came indefinitely out of respect for the victims of the deadly school shooting in Parkland.

Now, several months on, THR reports the show will not be shown on any Viacom-owned network as the company is currently searching for a new network to buy it.

Based on the 1988 cult classic film of the same name, the pitch-black comedy anthology sees heroine Veronica Sawyer (Grace Victoria Cox) dealing with a very different but equally vicious group of ‘Heathers’.

As screeners of the series were sent out before the delay, reviews have been out for a while with most painting a not very flattering portrait of the show. The series was already renewed for a second season with that one to feature the same cast in the court of Marie Antoinette in the 1700’s.
