A Clueless reboot 'with a mystery element' is in the works

Clueless reboot is officially in the works - although there's going to be a bit of a twist.

Yes, that's right: the TV series inspired by the iconic '90s film is going to have a bit of a mystery element to it.


According to Deadlinethe project is like "Mean Girls meets Riverdale meets a Lizzo music video" and - much like the original film - would be set in high school.

The series would look at what happens when queen bee Cher disappears and her best pal and life-long right hand woman, Dionne, takes her place.

But how does she deal with the pressures of being the most popular girl in school, while also trying to uncover the mystery of what happened to Cher?


There is no network attached to the project just yet, although the publication confirms "multiple streamers and the CW" have shown strong interest in it.

Will & Grace's Jordan Reddout and Gus Hickey will write the script, with Jane The Virgin and The Good Wife's Corinne Brinkerhoff and Robert Lawrence - who produced the original Clueless movie - will executive produce.

It wouldn't be the first time that Cher, Dionne et al. hit the small screen, either.

In 1996, there was a half hour comedy series Clueless, created by the film's original writer and director Amy Heckerling. It ran for a total of three seasons.
