A “Clueless” Reboot Is Currently In The Works
You might not be seeing any of Cher, though.
If you grew up in the late 90s and early 2000s, there are a few movies that were probably a staple part of your adolescence. Movies like Legally Blonde, Mean Girls, and Bring It On were watched by groups of young girls at slumber parties while they dreamed of what it would be like to be a teenager one day and feel as powerful as Elle Woods or Regina George. Another cult classic film from back in the day is none other than Clueless, and it looks like it just might be making a comeback. The Clueless movie reboot will be turned into a TV series and we're like, totally buggin'.
If you've ever watched, then you're definitely familiar with the story of Cher (played by Alicia Silverstone), a privileged high school student who spends her time setting up teachers and giving awkward girls makeovers. When one of her "projects" becomes more popular than her, Cher realizes that her step-brother ( ) was right about her misguided choices, and she ends up falling for him.
Looking back, the plot of Clueless was pretty weird, but that doesn't make it any less of a fan favourite. As has been tradition with many iconic films and TV shows from the past lately, a Clueless reboot is currently in the works!
Clueless won't be coming back as a movie — it's actually going to be coming back as an hour-long TV series, according to Deadline. Unfortunately for Cher groupies, the show won't be focused around the blonde bombshell. Instead, it will follow her BFF, Dionne (played by Stacey Dash).
The new series will be something like "meets meets a Lizzo music video", and will take place in a high school, as the OG movie did. According to the report from Deadline, the new TV series will tell the story of what happens when Cher disappears, and how Dionne steps into the role of the high school queen bee in her absence.
If all these rumours are true, it looks like the new Clueless series will be coming to us sometime in 2020, likely on the CW network, but there are many streaming services that will be battling for a chance at the show as well.
Casting for the show has yet to be announced, but it's not likely you'll see any of the original Clueless cast on-screen unless they're playing the parents of these mischevious high schoolers.
