Paramount Network’s just released the official restricted (not safe for kids or work) trailer for the upcoming series, Heathers. The dark comedy’s inspired by the 1988 film from writer Daniel Waters and director Michael Lehmann, with original cast member Shannon Doherty set to appear as a guest star in multiple episodes of the 2018 series.
Heathers will premiere on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT.

Paramount Network launched on January 18, 2018, taking over for Spike TV. Spike’s Lip Sync Battle, Ink Master, and Bar Rescue will have a home on the new network, however fans of The Shannara Chronicles will be disappointed to learn that series hasn’t been renewed by Paramount Network for season three.
The Heathers Plot: Based on the iconic cult classic film of the same name, Heathers is a pitch-black comedy anthology series that is set in in the present day with “good girl” Veronica Sawyer dealing with a very different but equally vicious group of ‘Heathers.’ Heather Chandler (Melanie Field) is the unconventional leader of this popular high school clique and rules Westerburg High through fear, intimidation and amazing fashion sense. Heather Duke (Brendan Scannell) is Heather C’s #1 sidekick and harnesses the Heather’s power to destroy whoever he views as a total discount hobgoblin.
Heather McNamara (Jasmine Mathews) is considered the nicest Heather in the group who lives in the shadow of the others. JD Dean (James Scully) is the new boy in town with a dark side and sets out on a reckless path of destruction proving that no one, even his girlfriend Veronica, is safe.
