Heathers: Season One Ratings

Parent-company Viacom rebranded Spike TV, earlier this year. The newly minted Paramount Network didn't get off to the best start though, and emblematic of its rough beginning is the rocky road its new Heathers TV show took to the air.

When Paramount couldn't find any takers, they decided to air nine of the 10-episode first season after all, with some content edited out. Are they just making back what money they can, or does this series stand a chance? Will Heathers be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.

‘Heathers’: Shelved Reboot Series To Air On Paramount Network With Edits
Four months after Paramount Network scrapped its Heathers reboot, based on the cult movie, the Viacom cable network has scheduled the controversial series in a week-long marathon event beginning October 25.

The high school satire, which contains violent scenes and tackles suicide, has undergone cuts, bringing the number of episodes from 10 to 9. The finale included the famous scene from the movie where the high school is blown up. It is no longer in the show, and I hear the final two episodes were combined to create a cliffhanger. In episode 5, the content in a first-person video game, originally featuring teachers holding guns, was also changed.

Heathers will premiere with two episodes on October 25, followed by two new episodes each night for five consecutive nights through Monday, October 29. The final episode will be followed by the premiere of a new Heathers-themed-episode of Lip Sync Battle with Melanie Field (Heather Chandler) and

‘Heathers’ Reboot Not Moving Forward At Paramount Network
Paramount Network has opted not to move forward with its Heathers reboot, Deadline has confirmed. The new Heathers was initially scheduled to premiere March 7, but was delayed out of respect to the victims, families and others affected by the deadly shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fl, which claimed 17 lives.

“We had multiple meetings, and in the end, we didn’t feel comfortable right now airing the series and I’m not sure when there might be a time that we as a youthful brand at Viacom would feel comfortable,” said Cox.
