The long-awaited “Heathers” TV series is about to finally make it to the air, with Variety reporting that the Paramount Network will release the first season of the show ahead of Halloween — with some edits.
“Beginning Oct. 25, the cable network will air two episodes a night until Oct. 29,” Variety reports. “The 10-episode series has been condensed down to nine, with certain scenes edited out. The finale will be followed by the premiere of a new ‘Heathers’-themed episode of ‘Lip Sync Battle’ with series stars Melanie Field and Brendan Scannell.”
Starting Oct. 22 the complete series will be available for streaming on the network’s app and website.
The report quotes showrunner Jason Micallef saying: “I am beyond excited that American audiences will finally get to see ‘Heathers.’ Obviously I wish fans could see the tenth episode but the producers and I felt strongly about not changing anything in it, and so, it’s been considered too controversial for U.S. audiences. Still, every day at this job is a delightful dream so it’s hard to complain. Plus, what matters most is fans will now get to see the satire we all love so much.”
