‘Heathers’ Trailer Offers Gun-Toting Shannen Doherty First Look (Video)

Doherty played the role of Heather Duke in the original 1988 movie, which starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater

Paramount Network has released the first full-length trailer for its upcoming “Heathers” reboot, giving a first look at the titular clique and a few special guest stars.

Playing off the plot of the 1988 cult hit movie starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, the new TV series has a twist: The cool kids are the group that would have been the outcasts in a different era. A gender-queer male (Brendan Scannell), a black lesbian (Jasmine Mathews) and an overweight girl (Melanie Field) rule Westerburg High School. James Scully and Grace Victoria Cox will step in for Slater and Ryder, respectively.

The new trailer also gives the first glimpse at Shannen Doherty’s gun-toting guest turn and series newcomer Selma Blair. Doherty played the role of Heather Duke in the original 1988 movie.

Designed as an anthology series that will reboot itself from season-to-season, “Heathers” hails from creator Jason Micallef and will premiere on March 7 at 10/9c on Paramount Network.
