Bravo’s “Heathers” series will be a sequel to the feature film starring Winona Ryder, the project’s writer Jenny Bicks tells The Hollywood Reporter.
If Bicks has her way, Ryder – and her unnamed co-stars – will return to reprise her role for the small-screen follow-up.
“If Winona Ryder wanted to come in and play something, we’d love to have her,” Bicks said. “It’s a fun way of casting new women that are around her but also her kids.”
“Bring them all back! I think there’s that sense of the people who know the original would love to see that but then there’s also this opportunity for this whole new generation who doesn’t know Heathers the way we do to be introduced to it in a new way,” she said. “Like what’s happening with [the CW’s] The Carrie Diaries right now — people who don’t know the old show but can be introduced to a new show.”
The series is set twenty years after the film with Veronica (Ryder’s character from the film) ”returning home to Sherwood with her teenage daughter, who must contend with the next generation of mean girls — the Ashleys, who are the daughters of the surviving Heathers featured in the film”, according to the trade.
The writer is in “serious talks” with Bravo and hopes to have news on a pilot soon.
