Heathers Video: Reboot's First Promo Comes Armed 'With a Chainsaw'

Unless you’re a Bluebird, a Brownie, a Girl Scout Cookie, you’re gonna know how apropos it is that the first promo for Paramount Network’s Heathers reboot not only trots out alpha female Heather Chandler (Melanie Field), it puts the “grand” in the megabitch’s grand entrance.

What’s more, the teaser wisely pays homage to the beloved 1988 black comedy by immediately letting Veronica Sawyer (Grace Victoria Cox, picking up Winona Ryder’s croquet mallet) drop one of the movie’s most infamous — and least printable — quotes. Check it out below:

Coming in 2018 to @ParamountNetwork. #Heathers #☠️
