Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Honestly don't bother

the musical was good and the movie was good but this just isn't good it takes most of what made Heathers Heathers and modernized it which just didn't work for the story

Guys give it a chance

The new show is just as good as the movie if you give it a chance. (Don't show it to kids unless you've seen it first this is Heathers after all.) It has everything at great adaptation needs and so far I'm impressed.
