Angst-filled teenager Veronica Sawyer (Grace Victoria Cox) blows her friendship with Heather Chandler (Melanie Field), a social media savant and leader of the Heathers, the most powerful clique in their high school, which include Heather Duke (Brendan Scannell) and Heather McNamara (Jasmine Mathews). As a result, Heather C vows to make Veronica's social life a living hell. Veronica retaliates by pranking Heather C with the help of her boyfriend JD (James Scully).

Critic Reviews for Heathers: Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (2)

The casting is perfect...and the scripts pay bulk homage to the original. Well worth checking out.

Flipping the original version's script without understanding any of its messages was always going to be a problem. Bringing it into such a radically changed world was even worse. The show was doomed from the start.

What's missing better focused aims and a keener sense of satire. In the current climate you can't just make fun of these issues, there needs to be a smarter approach.

All the ingredients are right, but this is a pop culture cake that was left in the oven too long and now it's burnt.

October 29, 2018 | Full Review…

What once seemed audacious is now just atrociously mean-spirited.

October 25, 2018 | Full Review…

The show is painfully sharp in its portrayal of the way grief is performed on social media and I.R.L. It is similarly brutal in its lampooning of national deformities.
