You may have heard the rumours about a Clueless reboot tastefully sashaying it’s way through our satellites last October, now half a year later the project is finally taking flight. I believe it was the vocalist and Celebrity Big Brother winner Sarah Harding who once said, it’s about time!
With many tasteful allusions made to the seminal classic over the years, from Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX’s chart-topping “Fancy” to the 2018 musical that premiered in New York, it’s clear the 90s’ most stylish rich kids have left a lasting impression on popular culture, making a reboot well overdue.
Helmed by production company Peacock, this time around things will focus on Cher’s trendy best friend Dionne Davenport, originally played by Stacey Dash. Viewers can expect a baby pink and bisexual blue-tinted, tiny sun-glasses wearing, oat milk latte and Adderall-fueled look at what happens when queen bee Cher disappears and her lifelong number two Dionne steps into Cher’s vacant Air Jordans. We’re thinking Wes Anderson meets Mean Girls?
Viewers will see Dionne come into her own in the project, whose executive producers are behind shows like Jane The Virgin and The Good Wife. How will does Dionne deal with the pressures of being the new most popular girl in school, while also unraveling the mystery of what happened to her best friend? We’ll just have to wait and see.
