Trailers preview Heathers TV series and mermaid show Siren

Heathers Paramount Network

Several months ago, the Paramount Network (a newly re-branded Spike) released a teaser for their flagship series Heathers, a show inspired by the 1988 cult classic film of the same title. With the show's March debut swifly approaching, the network has now released a full trailer, which can be seen below.

Created by Jason A. Micallef, the series will tell a reworked version of the film's story over the course of its 10 episode first season. The film followed a high schooler named 

Veronica as she navigates a clique of mean girls -- all named Heather -- and rebels after meeting J.D., the new guy at school. Soon, the Heathers start "accidentally" dying at the hands of Veronica and J.D., who cover up the deaths by faking them as suicides.

The show's Heathers are being played by Jasmine Mathews, Brendan Scannell, and Melanie Field, with Grace Victoria Cox and James Scully as Veronica and J.D. Original HEATHERS star Shannen Doherty will have a three-episode arc, her first appearance being in the very first scene of the first episode.

Heathers begins airing on the Paramount Network at 10pm on March 7th.

Another show with a newly released trailer is Freeform's Siren (formerly known as The Deep), which that will explore "the darker side of mermaid mythology". It's set in 

Bristol Cove, a coastal town known for its legend of once being home to mermaids. When the arrival of a mysterious girl proves this folklore all too true, the battle between man and sea takes a very vicious turn as these predatory beings return to reclaim their right to the ocean. 

I'm wary of a reboot of Heathers, but Siren has my interest because I've long been fascinated by the idea of mermaids as predatory creatures, thanks to a mermaid horror story I read when I was a child. Siren's cast includes Alex Roe, Eline Powell, Fola Evans Aking-bola, Ian Verdun, and Rena Owen.

The trailer below gives a glimpse of a dangerous mermaid. The show is set to premiere on Freeform with a two hour special beginning at 8pm on March 29th.
