"Heathers" is back from the dead.
Paramount Network's TV reboot of the 1988 dark comedy was initially supposed to air in March of this year, but was delayed to summer after the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. But then, in June, Paramount Network decided to shelve the show indefinitely.
But now, it will finally air — albeit in an edited form. Nine of the 10 filmed episodes will air as a marathon, two episodes a night, starting October 25.
The 9th and 10th episodes were edited together to form a cliffhanger finale. It will be followed by a "Heathers"-themed installment of "Lip Sync Battle" featuring stars Melanie Field and Brendan Scannell on October 29.
"I am beyond excited that American audiences will finally get to see 'Heathers,'" showrunner Jason Micallef said in a statement.
“Obviously I wish fans could see the 10th episode but the producers and I felt strongly about not changing anything in it, and so, it’s been considered too controversial for U.S. audiences. Still, every day at this job is a delightful dream so it’s hard to complain. Plus, what matters most is fans will now get to see the satire we all love so much.”
The series will also be available to stream on Paramount Network's app and website October 22.
