No need to fuck yourself gently with a chainsaw: "Heathers" is finally getting a television reboot, and guess what? The lead Heather is plus-size.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the reboot is set to premiere in early 2018 on Spike TV, which is being rebranded as Paramount Network. 

Fans immediately lost it when they realized the modern-day Heather Chandler is plus-size.

The lead Heather will be played by Melanie Field, and she is nothing like the blonde WASP-in-training ringleader of the 1988 original. 

The "new" Heather Chandler is rebellious, edgy, and of course, a total badass bitch. Jealous much?

The roles of Heather Duke and Heather McNamara were also updated.

In the television version, Heather Duke (played by Brendan Scannell) is genderqueer, and Heather McNamara (played by Jasmine Mathews) is a Black lesbian.

The internet applauded producers for giving Westerburg High School a diversity facelift.

But for those who still can't part ways with the "Heathers" of the past, never fear: Shannen Doherty has a role in the TV reboot.

"Sneak peek from the #Heathers set," Doherty shared in November.

Selma Blair was also cast as an addition to the series.

The "Cruel Intentions" actress plays Jade, Heather Duke’s methanol-smoking, gold-digging stripper stepmother who just can't wait for her husband to die.

And Grace Victoria Cox (who plays Veronica) definitely looks like she'll do Winona Ryder justice.

However, she *does* steal Heather Chandler's “Well, fuck me gently with a chainsaw" line in the trailer...

Basically, is it 2018 yet?
