After years of rumors, the “Clueless” reboot is coming together and has a home. PeacockTV announced they will carry the anticipated TV series.
In October 2018, there were reports that a new project was in the works based on the 1995 movie. We now know it will be centered on the character Dionne, played by Stacey Dash in the original movie, and will land on PeacockTV.
The tv series is still in development, so PeacockTV did not have a release date or timeline information. They did release more information about the plotline.
“A baby pink and bisexual blue-tinted, tiny sun-glasses wearing, oat milk latte and Adderall-fueled look at what happens when queen bee Cher disappears and her lifelong No. 2 Dionne steps into Cher’s vacant Air Jordans. How does Dionne deal with the pressures of being the new most popular girl in school, while also unraveling the mystery of what happened to her best friend?” reads a statement from PeacockTV.
This isn’t the first reboot for the 90s classic, which was a loose interpretation of Jane Austen's "Emma." In 1996, there was a TV series spin-off for three seasons and in 2018, a musical version debuted off-Broadway.
