ICYMI: Your fav sassy Winona Ryder film Heathers is getting a TV adaptation. The first teasers are out and damn they are savage.
Over 10 episodes, the series reworks the film with a few important changes. One is diversity. The Hollywood Reporter revealed the new (relatively unknown) Heathers last year:
“Heather McNamara (originally portrayed by Lisanne Falk) will be played by Jasmine Mathews; in the TV Land pilot, she is a black lesbian. Heather Duke (originally portrayed by Shannen Doherty) will be played by Brendan Scannell; the new version of the character is a male who identifies as gender-queer whose real name is Heath. Heather Chandler (originally portrayed by Kim Walker) will be played by Melanie Field; in the new incarnation, she is described as having a body like Martha Dumptruck.”
You can now get acquainted with them via their yearbook photos and teaser clips below:
