Stan has announced it will exclusively premiere Heathers, a pitch-black satirical comedy series based on the cult classic film, on September 28 with all episodes dropping at once.
The ten-part series is set in the present day and follows Veronica Sawyer as she deals with a very different but equally vicious group of Heathers, led by the fashionable yet cutthroat Heather Chandler and her sidekicks Heather Duke and Heather McNamara. The much-anticipated reboot perfectly blends drama, love, rivalry and comedy into a modern-day masterpiece.
The series stars Melanie Field, Jasmine Mathews and Brendan Scannell as the new group of Heathers, Grace Victoria Cox as Veronica and James Scully as J.D. Shannen Doherty, who portrayed Heather Duke in the film, has a guest role in the series. Selma Blair, Kurt Fuller, Jamie Kaler, Wallace Langham, Drew Droege, Travis Schuldt and Deanna Cheng also star.
Jason Micallef (Butter), who wrote the pilot script, will serve as executive producer and showrunner, and Leslye Headland (Sleeping With Other People, Bachelorette) directed and was an executive producer on the pilot. Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi executive produce for Lakeshore Entertainment.
