Remember the cattiness? Recall the sighs and eye rolls of Heathers stars Shannen Doherty and Winona Ryder? How about the dreaminess of Christian Slater in his prime?

According to TV Line, ’80s movie Heathers is getting a reboot over at TV Land, and could be appearing on a small screen near you in the not-too-distant future.

The network announced a pilot order on Wednesday, meaning a first episode will be created.

An interesting detail: TV Land is claiming its the network’s “first anthology series,” insinuating that it might follow in the footsteps of such shows as American Horror Story, where the cast changes from season to season.

Just like the original movie, the Heathers TV show will revolve around Veronica Sawyer (Ryder’s character in the film). Not many other details are known at this point, but there will be a group of mean girls for Veronica to contend with.

There is no word on what network, if any, will air the series in Canada — if it even makes it to air.
