"Heathers" Has Been Canceled Before Its Premiere In Response To Recent School Shootings

    Viacom, which felt uncomfortable airing the controversial program in the wake of multiple school shootings this year, is looking to shop the show elsewhere.

    A representative for the Paramount Network confirmed to BuzzFeed News Friday that the TV reimagining of the 1989 cult classic film Heathers has been canceled.

    While Viacom, the parent company of Paramount Network, is trying to find a new home for the show, it felt uncomfortable airing a show that tackles guns, suicide, and violence in high school so close to the Parkland and Santa Fe shootings.
