Paramount Network pulled Sunday night’s episodes of its “Heathers” reboot in the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting. This isn’t the first time the network has pulled episodes of “Heathers” in response to a mass shooting.

The show was originally scheduled to air in March but was postponed after the Parkland shooting. It was rescheduled for July but was yet again pulled after the school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas.

Paramount chose to no longer air the series on its network and the show was said to be looking for a new home on other networks and streaming platforms. However, Paramount edited and reshot scenes to remove the show’s plotline of blowing up the school and began airing the show for five consecutive nights.

The unaired episodes are available to view on demand and on the Paramount app. The show’s finale, which aired on Monday night, was originally meant to be two episodes but was reedited into one episode.
