Cruel Intentions Is Getting A TV Spin-Off

Cruel Intentions Is Getting A TV Spin-Off

Our 90s nostalgia has gone into overdrive lately, what with the 15th anniversary of Bring It On, and the news of a potential return of The Fresh Prince. And now 16 years after the movie first hit our screens, we've learned that Cruel Intentions might be getting the TV treatment.

According to Deadline NBC has requested a pilot script for a follow-up TV series, which comes from the original director and writer Roger Kumble and producer Neil H. Moritz.

At the end of the original Sebastian (Ryan Phillippe) died a very tragic death, leaving his first love Annette (Reese Witherspoon) to out his step sister Kathryn (Sarah Michelle Gellar) with his journal, or the original Burn Book as we call it.

And apparently when Annette drove off into the sunset in his vintage car, she was with child - who knew. Because their sixteen-year-old son Bash Casey is the star of the new series, set in the present day.

Deadline outlines that the plot goes that 'upon discovering his late father’s journal, Bash learns of the family legacy he didn’t know existed. In search of answers, he trades his small-town Kansas upbringing for a scholarship to the prestigious Brighton Preparatory Academy in San Francisco and soon finds himself in a world of sex, money, power, and corruption he never could have imagined.'

Sounds suitably dark. We're expecting scandal, sex and betrayal aplenty. Roll on a release date.

We really hope Bush has inherited his mum's knack for pulling faces.

Cher Horowitz was the coolest kid in Beverley Hills with knee high socks, check suits and alice bands. And she had the best moving wardrobe we have ever seen. Topshop Unique's S/S 13 had a look of Cher with a check dress and bright yellow blazer.

The supers ruled the 90s and Cindy could rock a suit better than anyone! Chloe Sevigny's outfit is a modern update on Cindy's signature style.

Blossom7 of 11


Blossom was a TV sitcom which was an explosion of crazy hats, waistcoats, ankle socks and dungarees. Head-to-toe the look is disastrous but try one piece at a time, like Alexa in her denim dungarees.

Drew Barrymore8 of 11

Drew Barrymore

Back in the 90s Drew was a hippie princess with tie-dye, flowers in her hair and bright colours. House of Holland S/S 13 had plenty of Drew Barrymore circa 1990s look-a-likes.

Elaine Benes from Seinfeld9 of 11

Elaine Benes from Seinfeld

Elaine Benes in Seinfeld used to wear granny floral dresses, socks and brogues - all very 2012 eh? Update the look with low heels like Florence Welsh.

Kelly Kapowski (Tiffany from Saved by the Bell)10 of 11

Kelly Kapowski (Tiffany from Saved by the Bell)

Saved By The Bell's Tiffany is the ultimate pretty, popular girl and she wore pastels, pumps and florals. Channel Tiffany in floral jeans like Olivia Palermo.

Kelly Bundy from Married With Children11 of 11

Kelly Bundy from Married With Children

We're not only envious of Kelly's (played by Christina Appelgate) thick, long hair we also love her wardrobe. She wore crop tops, denim cut offs and crosses round her neck. Copy her look with a floral bomber jacket like Jessie J.
