One of the OGs is returning to claim her throne: Shannen Doherty, who played Heather Duke in the 1988 movie Heathers, is joining TV Land’s anthologized reboot. She joins a cast including Melanie Fields as Heather Chandler, Jasmine Matthews as Heather McNamara, and Branden Scannell as a gender-queer Heather Duke. Newcomers Grace Victoria Cox and James Scully will star as Veronica and J.D., respectively. Doherty broke the news on Instagram writing, “Jealous much?” THR reports that the role is being kept secret, but that TV Land said Doherty would play a “pivotal, unnamed character.” How very.
