The cult classic film “Heathers” is getting a modern makeover with a gay twist in the show’s first trailer.

In the remake, the Heathers clique includes Heather McNamara (Jasmine Mathews,) a black lesbian, Heather Duke (Brendan Scannell,), who identifies as gender-queer, and Heather Chandler (Melanie Field), a plus-size woman. Veronica Sawyer (Grace Victoria Cox) and her boyfriend J.D. (James Scully) will also be back to plot the Heathers murders.

Some of the old cast will be making appearances in the new series. Shannon Doherty, who played Heather Duke, will have a guest starring role.

“Heathers” premieres on the Paramount Network in 2018.

Watch the trailer below.
