While we were excited to hear that Cruel Intentions was getting a television reboot, we had no idea what it would entail or whether any of the original cast would feature.
But it seems that our nineties fangirl prayers have been answered because none other than Sarah Michelle Gellar is set to return to play arguably one of her best characters.
And it seems Sarah is all but thrilled to reprise her role as the pretty detestable Kathryn Merteuil in the television sequel series as evidenced in a post to Instagram.
#throwbackthursday (a bit early in Los Angeles) this picture was taken on the eve of production on the original #cruelintentions. Its me #rogerkumble (director) and #nealmoritz (exec producer) and the other is a picture of us now on the eve of production on the new #cruelintentions. That's right "everybody loves me, and I intend to keep it that way" #kathrynmerteuil is back!!! I am happy to say that I will be joining them (and @nbctv ) on the new #Crueltv
The now iconic film, which catapulted Reese Witherspoon's career into the stratosphere as well as Ryan Phillipe's, has been picked up by top US television network NBC.
The series will work as a sequel to the successful film, which will take place 15 years after the events of the original.
While the film is essentially a teen rom-com, it definitely had darkly comic undertones. The plot followed a wealthy step-brother and sister's wager to take the virginity of the daughter of the headmaster of their elite New York prep school.
The new series will revolve around the daughter of Sebastian and Annette and the dark plots still orchestrated by Kathryn.
"Follows the beautiful and cunning Kathryn Merteuil as she vies for control of Valmont International as well as the soul of Bash Casey, the son of her brother, who was the late Sebastian Valmont, and Annette Hargrove," reads a synopsis of the plot.
Yes, yes and more YES.
Now all we need is for Ryan Phillipe to sign on and we'll be satisfied.
