The Heathers TV show, a remake of the 1988 cult classic starring Winona Ryder, arrives soon.

Ever since its announcement, people didn’t know how to feel about it. Paramount Network released a new red band (aka uncensored) trailer for the show and people are more opinionated than ever.

In the original movie, Veronica (Ryder) tires of her time with the popular Heather clique. She and her new boyfriend, J.D. (Christian Slater), plan to ruin them. However, things quickly get out of hand with suicide notes, murder, and black comedy.

In this new take, Veronica (Grace Victoria Cox) and J.D. (James Scully) go up against a brand new group of modern-day and diverse Heathers (played by Melanie Field, Brendan Scannell, and Jasmine Matthews).

Selma Blair and original cast member Shannen Doherty also have roles.

Don’t mess with a classic

A lot of people aren’t happy with the reboot because the original is a classic.

Others take issue with the role-reversal and making women and queer characters the Heathers.

Others, however, are excited about it.

Like critics who have seen clips.

The Heathers series arrives on 7 March on Paramount Network.
