Not only is Wynonna Ryder starring in the biggest hit of the summer in Netflix’s Stranger Things, but now one of the cult classic films she starred in is heading to the small screen.

After announcing a script deal in March, TV Land has greenlit the pilot for Heathers, based on the 1988 cult classic film of the same name.

Leslye Headland will direct the pitch-black comedy.

Reimagined as an anthology, Heathers will be set in the present day, as our heroine deals with a very different but equally vicious group of Heathers.

The script is written by Jason Micallef and Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will executive produce for Lakeshore Entertainment.

The original film was written by Daniel Waters and directed by Michael Lehmann and starred Ryder, Slater and Shannen Doherty.
