Paramount Network announced on its Instagram account on Tuesday that Heathers will premiere on July 10th. The network had delayed the premiere, initially set for March 7, following the deadly shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school. In a statement at the time, Paramount Network said its “original series “Heathers” is a satirical comedy that takes creative risks in dealing with many of society’s most challenging subjects ranging from personal identity to race and socio-economic status to gun violence,” the statement said. “While we stand firmly behind the show, in light of the recent tragic events in Florida and out of respect for the victims, their families and loved ones, we feel the right thing to do is delay the premiere until later this year.”
The Heathers reboot is a dark comedy tv series based on the 1988 cult film that starred Wiona Ryder, Christian Slater and Shannen Doherty. Selma Blair will play a step-mother to one of the Heathers in the Paramount series.
