A controversial series has found new life despite concerns about a plot element in which a school is blown up. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that after initially being scrapped by Paramount Network, the reboot of the cult feature film “Heathers” is being sold internationally, with the search continuing for a U.S. home for the dramedy.

THR reports that Paramount ditched its plans to air the series “in a move to be respectful to victims, families and loved ones impacted by school shootings.” But after scrapping its plans in June, Paramount Network has now sold the series to multiple international territories, THR reports.

“The international sales help recoup some of the cost for the 10-episode drama,” THR reports. “Sources note that multiple U.S. homes — including Netflix and Freeform — have passed on the series.”
