We were beyond excited when Sarah Michelle Gellar announced that she'd be reprising her role of Kathryn Merteuil for NBC's upcoming Cruel Intentions reboot, but now we've learned some bad news…
Reese Witherspoon will officially NOT be coming back to play Annette Hargrove.
However, we're happy to say the part is in excellent hands because the actress selected to follow in Reese's footsteps has quite the résumé!

It was revealed on Tuesday that Kate Levering from Drop Dead Diva will be joining Sarah Michelle, Taylor John Smith, Nathalie Kelly, Samantha Logan, and Sophina Brown for the pilot.
Kate is a Tony nominated dancer/actress, so we're sure she'll be a standout when Cruel Intentions comes back into our lives!
Are U pumped for Hollywood's latest '90s remake??
