According to Variety the dark comedy “Heathers,” that classic 80’s teen flick starring Veronica (Winona Ryder)and J.D. (Christian Slater), will be revamped into a TV series helmed by Mark Rizzo and Jenny Bicks (Sex in the City). As of yet, no actors are officially attached to the series (at the time of this post).

In addition supposedly all the characters are said to be returning which obviously is a problem, if you saw the movie you know what I mean or either it’s a prequel or maybe a little revisionist history at work!

Either way I really don’t think it will really work well on the small screen, the movie was a classic original 80s teen dark comedy. There is a lot of darkness and comedy here that would be difficult to replicate on TV or anywhere else for that matter.
