Shannen Doherty, the original Heather Duke, has joined TV Land’s upcoming anthology series reboot of Michael Lehmann’s cult 1988 movie Heathers. Just to prove I’m not pulling your dick, here’s Doherty’s announcement earlier today on Instagram:
How very. There already is a Heather Duke in this reboot—the character will be reportedly genderqueer and played by Brendan Scannell. Who knows at this point what that means for Doherty’s role—The Hollywood Reporter noted that, “Details on Doherty’s role are being kept under wraps; TV Land would only confirm that she will portray a ‘pivotal, unnamed character.’”
In conclusion: BBQ Corn Nuts, “Madonna...D-Donna,” what’s your damage, you love your dead gay son, and of course, fuck us all gently with a chainsaw, Doherty’s back!
