Heathers Reboot at TV Land: Meet the New JD and Veronica

How very… surreal.

TV Land’s in-the-works Heathers reboot has found its new Veronica and JD, the iconic characters played in the 1989 film by Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.

Under the Dome actress Grace Cox (see photo, right) will portray Veronica, while newcomer James Scully will inherit the role of JD, TVLine has learned.


Last month, TV Land formally greenlit a pilot for a half-hour, single camera series based on the 1988 cult classic. The cabler said it will “reimagine” Heathers as a present-day anthology series, with each season focusing on a different heroine and a new set of mean girls.

Jason Micallef (Butter) penned the script and Leslye Headland (Terriers) is set to direct the pilot, which begins shooting later this fall.
