It’s doubtful the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum will pick back up her spot as second-in-command mean girl Heather Duke, as TV Land’s reboot is going in a whole new direction (and the original Heather violently died in Heathers).

The updated Heather Duke is now a male who identifies as genderqueer, while Heather McNamara is a black lesbian. Relative newcomers Brendan Scannell and Jasmine Mathews will fill the respective roles.

TV Land plans to make Heathers an anthology series, a la American Horror Story, meaning there will be a new group of Heathers every season.
