Someone is going to try to replace Amy Heckerlings dialogue and Alicia Silverstone as Cher? As if! Yet that appears to be the case with the announcement that the Clueless reboot is headed to NBCUniversals new Peacock streaming network.

The project has actually been in development since last year, but the announcement of it moving forward and finding a home at Peacock is a swift development. But the series, which is being written by Jordan Reddout and Gus Hickey (Will & Grace, The Muppets.), takes a different direction than you might expect. With its focus on the character of Dionne, who was played by Stacey Dash in the original 1995 movie and the previous television adaptation attempt from 1996, the new Clueless clearly intends to offer a unique vantage on the privileges of Chers Beverly Hills high school experience.

The synopsis for the new series calls it a baby pink and bisexual blue-tinted, tiny sunglasses-wearing, oat milk latt and Adderall-fueled look at what happens when the high school queen bee Cher disappears and her lifelong No. 2 Dionne steps into Chers vacant Air Jordans. How does Dionne deal with the pressures of being the new popular girl in school, while also unraveling the mystery of what happened to her best friend?

With the focus on Dionne and a modern setting, the new Clueless definitely seems aware it must examine this materialistic world with a different set of values, all while apparently adding a mystery at the heart of it, which is in keeping with recent teen dramas like Riverdale, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and Pretty Little Liars.
