Here’s what’s happening with the upcoming Clueless reboot

The untitled series, which centres on Dionne after Cher ‘mysteriously disappears’, is in development at Peacock

We’ve known for a while now that there’s a Clueless remake on the way – because apparently we’re completely out of original ideas – and that it’s set to focus on Dionne as the protagonist, following the “mysterious disappearance” of Cher. 

Now, Variety reports that the series has been picked up for development by the recently-launched streaming service Peacock, which made its debut in July this year.

Previously, the reboot has been described as a: “baby pink and bisexual blue-tinted, tiny sunglasses-wearing, oat milk latte and Adderall-fueled look at what happens when the high school queen bee Cher disappears and her lifelong number two Dionne steps into Cher’s vacant Air Jordans.”

The as-yet-untitled show will take a look at how Dionne adapts to becoming “the new most popular girl in school”, while investigating what happened to her best friend.

Produced by CBS TV, it will be written and executive produced by Will & Grace’s Jordan Reddout and Gus Hickey. Corrinne Brinkerhoff, Scott Rudin, Eli Bush, Tiffany Grant, and Robert Lawrence will also produce, according to Variety. 

Though Lawrence also served as a producer on the original Clueless film, the 90s coming of age classic – with iconic looks and an arguably even more iconic cast – will be a challenge to live up to.
