[ # ] Paramount Networks does a Heathers and kills the show
June 2nd, 2018 under Paramount Network


Heathers was supposed to air on TV Land, but then it was moved to its new sister channel Paramount Network. Then the series based on the 1988 movie was supposed to debut in March, but then the Parkland shooting happened. Then the show about kids from a high school suddenly dying off was moved to July, but then the Sante Fe shooting happened. Therefore now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, it will not be airing at all on their network.

All hope is not dead, like one of the Heathers, it is being shopped around along with its second season that was mostly written and set in another era.

When it comes to decision, I think they made the right one. The dark comedy was able to get away its plot in the late ’80s because we were still 10 years away from school shootings. Now in the year of 2018, it is a little too real. Especially since one episode starts off with what looks like a school shooting, but was really a kid playing a video game. If they could get rid of the deaths, then maybe it can air. But that is a major plot point, so there is no way around it.

When it comes to basing the show around the time of Marie Antoinette, I am actually interested in that. Translation, let them eat cake!
