A New Generation of Vicious Heathers Are Coming to Your TV Screen

I hope you have some scrunchies and a plaid skirt suit handy, because a new look at the Heathers reboot is finally here. After a 30-second teaser aired during the VMAs in August, Paramount has just shared a full-length trailer. It’s clear that the 1988 cult classic has gotten a modern makeover. Replacing Winona Ryder and Christian Slater as Veronica and J.D. are Under the Dome actress Grace Victoria Cox and Quantico‘s James Scully, who have to face off against a pink fur coat-wearing, pixie cut-sporting Heather Chandler, played by newcomer Melanie Field. Rounding out the infamous clique is Heather Duke (Brendan Scannell), who is genderqueer, and Heather McNamara (Jasmine Mathews), a black lesbian.

The reboot will air on March 7 on Paramount Network, which means you still have plenty of time to watch the OG Heathers until then.

Kristen Wiig Is Coming Back to TV in a New Series With Reese Witherspoon

If you’ve missed seeing Kristen Wiig on the small screen, help is on the way. The Saturday Night Live alum is executive producing and starring in a 10-episode comedy series for Apple. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show is “inspired by Curtis Sittenfeld’s upcoming short-story collection You Think It, I’ll Say It” and will be produced by Reese Witherspoon’s multimedia brand, Hello Sunshine. It’s the third Apple series with Witherspoon at the helm, joining the untitled morning show drama that she will star in alongside Octavia Spencer and Jennifer Aniston.

Witherspoon shared her excitement about the project in an Instagram post on Wednesday and also revealed that she’d be making a cameo. “Total dream come true 💫 to be working with Kristen Wiig on a comedy for @Apple,” she wrote. “. . .And there might be a special guest appearance by someone you know 🙋🏼 because #FOMO is real!” The new Apple series marked Wiig’s first time back on the small screen since leaving SNL after seven seasons in 2012. Since then, she’s embarked on a movie career, starring in films like Bridesmaids, Ghostbusters, and most recently, Downsizing. We can’t wait for Wiig’s return!

Hulu: What's coming and going in February

One Tree Hill fans will be overjoyed to see what’s on the list of Hulu’s February 2018 releases. All nine seasons left Netflix back in October, but they’ve found a new streaming home alongside Cougar Town, Everwood, Broad City season 4, and Archer season 5.

Jeff Daniels also stars in a new Hulu original series, The Looming Tower, that’s making its debut on the platform on Feb. 28. Alec Baldwin, Peter Sarsgaard, and Michael Stuhlbarg feature in the 10-episode drama about the rise of Osama bin Laden and how an FBI-CIA rivalry might’ve inadvertently influenced the events of 9/11.

On the movie side of Hulu’s February selections are a few films you might’ve missed in 2017 that are worth a look.

There’s Beach Rats, director Eliza Hittman’s sophomore feature about a teen navigating his summer in Brooklyn and his secret online flirtations with older men. Detroit — Kathryn Bigelow’s film set against the backdrop of the infamous Detroit Riots — brings John Boyega to Hulu, while Tom of Finland brings to life one of the most influential figures of 20th century gay culture.

After Leaving Netflix, One Tree Hill Is Coming to Hulu — All 9 Seasons!

It’s been a long few months for One Tree Hill fans since the show left Netflix in October, but all is right in the world again, because it’s coming to Hulu. BuzzFeed News exclusively confirmed that One Tree Hill will be streaming on Hulu starting on Feb. 1, and your choices won’t be limited to a certain year in high school or status of Nathan and Haley’s relationship — all nine seasons will be available!

In November, OTH cast members including Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton, James Lafferty, and Chad Michael Murray came together to support the 18 former cast and crew members who accused the show’s creator, Mark Schwahn, of sexual harassment. Schwahn has since been fired from The Royals, a show he created for E! Entertainment. Despite the backlash against the show’s creator, One Tree Hill fans still have a big place in their hearts for the nostalgic drama and were highly upset by its disappearance from online streaming services. Grab your BFF, because it’s officially time for a marathon!

Jennifer Lopez Is Coming Back to Will & Grace in Not 1 but 2 Different Roles

Jennifer Lopez is keeping very busy these days! She’s started working on season two of her reality show World of Dance, finished shooting season three of NBC’s Shades of Blue, and now she’s signed on to appear in the Will & Grace reboot in not one but two roles.

The 48-year-old is set to guest star on the comedy as herself and as her character on her police drama, Shades of Blue, Detective Harlee Santos. This isn’t her first time appearing on Will & Grace, however. If you watched the show’s original run, you might recall seeing the jack of all trades on two season six episodes (and one in episode seven) as the singer booked for Karen and Lyle’s Las Vegas wedding. Will her and Jack still be friends? Does Karen still have her signature on her boob? And how will Harlee Santos fit into all this?

There’s still no word on when exactly her character will pop up, so in the meantime we’ll just have to revisit her old episodes!

This Is Not a Drill! A Show Inspired by Selena Quintanilla's Legacy Is Coming to ABC

We’re trying to contain our excitement over this news, but we don’t think we can! According to Variety, ABC is developing a show inspired by the life of late Tejana superstar Selena Quintanilla. There isn’t much information about when the show will air just yet, but we do know that the music-driven family drama will be produced by Quintanilla’s family. Her father, Abraham Quintanilla Jr., and her sister, Suzette Quintanilla Arriaga, are already on board. Scooter Braun, who’s known for managing everyone from Justin Bieber to Ariana Grande, will serve as one of the executive producers.

The show is set to focus on Alex Guerra, an award-winning singer who hasn’t spoken to her family in five years, but tries to reconcile after a crisis forces her to go back home to Texas. Once she returns, Alex finds herself trying to balance a love triangle and a demanding career and attempting to get past the dark secrets her family has in order to win them back. Clearly the show has merely gleaned inspiration from Quintanilla’s life rather than following her story by the book.

Although the singer was murdered by the president of her fan club in 1995, her legacy is still very much alive. Her family worked to release the 1997 biopic Selena, which catapulted Jennifer Lopez‘s career. They’ve also released a MAC Cosmetics collection, two wax figures at Madam Tussauds, and recently a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Based on what her sister told POPSUGAR last year, the family only has more projects in the works.

Remember How Terrifying The Strangers Was? Well, the Sequel Is Coming

A surprising number of people will tell you that The Strangers, a 2008 home invasion horror movie starring Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman, is one of the scariest movies ever. There’s something about the terrifying mix of facts that make up the movie: it’s loosely based on true events, it’s something that can literally happen to anyone, and the killers don’t seem to select their victims for any reason other than that they were home. Now, the sequel is coming back for round two. Titled The Strangers: Prey at Night, it looks like our favorite (or most reviled) masked villains are up to their old tricks. Suddenly, “I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tiffany is the scariest song ever written. Good luck with your nightmares!

Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie is coming to Marvel comics

Valkyrie was one of the best parts of Thor: Ragnarok. Tessa Thompson played the battle-scarred warrior like an Asgardian version of Han Solo, a down-on-her-luck fighter who tries using drinking and mercenary work to distract from her past trauma, before finally suiting up in all her armored glory to battle the villainous Hela. This portrayal is slightly out of step with how the character has usually been portrayed in Marvel comics, but these are superheroes, after all — there are plenty of parallel realities and multiverse shenanigans to go around. And so, Marvel has announced that a Thompson-inspired version of Valkyrie will soon be making her official comics debut in the publisher’s new Exiles series.

Written by Saladin Ahmed (Black Bolt) and illustrated by Javier Rodriguez, Exiles features a diverse team of superheroes assembled from across dimensions to save the multiverse from terrible threats. Led by the portal-opening mutant Blink (currently portrayed by Jaime Chung on The Gifted), the team boasts an eclectic lineup. There’s Khan, an alternate version of Ms. Marvel from a dark future; Iron Lad, a younger version of the time-traveling Kang the Conqueror first introduced in Young Avengers; and even a cute cartoonish version of Wolverine, from the X-Babies (think the Muppet Babies, but with adamantium claws). Valkyrie is the fifth and final piece of the puzzle.

“Valkyrie’s a character who’s always appealed to me. Her iconic warrior-woman look — spear! sword! flying horse! — but also the juxtaposition of a kickass ancient fantasy hero operating in contemporary New York City. She’s a classic Marvel heroine,” Ahmed said in a statement. “But the Exiles version of Valkyrie is a bit different from what we’ve seen in comics thus far. Our Valkyrie is known as the Lone Defender of Asgard, and she’s a tankard-draining, maiden-wooing, giant-slaying thunderbolt of a woman. Though she’s not technically from the Marvel Cinematic Universe reality, she’s basically the literalization of the larger-than-her-physical-frame swagger that Tessa Thompson displayed in Thor: Ragnarok, turned up to 11.”

If Ahmed’s quote is any indication, it sounds like this version of Valkyrie will indeed be queer, just as Thompson has insisted.

The first issue of Exiles hits stores April 11. Check out some concept art below.
