Heathers is a comedy classic, but you could never make that movie today.

So when we heard the salacious satire of all things high school — including suicide, date rape, and homophobia — was coming to the small screen in 2018, we had some questions.

The answers… are unexpected, that's for sure.

First off, each season will center around an entirely new group of Heathers (à la American Horror Story), starting with an unexpected trio including a genderqueer boy.

Also, the return of lone survivor Shannen Doherty AND some very politically incorrect language for basic cable.

A 20-year-old man is charged with murder after allegedly stabbing his former high school classmate over 20 times.

Earlier this month, Blaze Bernstein (above, left) had been visiting his parents while on winter break from the University of Pennsylvania. His parents reported him missing on January 3 and, a week later, his body was found in a shallow grave in a park.

On Friday, the Orange County Sheriff's Department arrested Samuel Woodward (above, insert), Blaze's high school friend, on suspicion of homicide. According to The O.C. Register, Blaze's Snapchat account led investigators to Woodward.

Officials have not found a weapon and are still trying to determine a motive in the case, however, Woodward confessed to investigators that he grew angry when Blaze tried to kiss him the night he disappeared.

Woodward told investigators that Blaze then kissed him on the lips, and that he pushed the Ivy League student away. Per the affidavit, Woodward allegedly "clenched his jaw and fists" while telling officials that "he wanted to tell Blaze to get off of him."

Texts from Blaze suggest that the student had been planning on sexually pursuing Woodward. Back in June, Blaze allegedly texted two female friends claiming Woodward was about to "hit on me" and "he made me promise
