The issue of rampant gun violence in America has been completely solved, after it was announced that Paramount have scrapped the Heathers reboot before a single issue has aired.

The show was due to premiere on March 7, but was postponed after 17 people were gunned down in a high school shooting in Florida.

Now the show has been cancelled completely, no doubt due to the fact that it’s very hard to find a month in which gun violence isn’t prevalent in high schools across America.

“This is a high school show, we’re blowing up the school, there are guns in the school, it’s a satire and there are moments of teachers having guns”, Paramount executive Keith Cox told The Hollywood Reporter.

“It’s hitting on so many hot topics. This company can’t be speaking out of both sides of its mouth, saying the youth movement is important for us and we’ve done all these wonderful things to support that and at the same time, we’re putting on a show that we’re not comfortable with. The combination of a high school show with these very dark moments didn’t feel right.”

Ten episode were produced. Maybe we will see them in Australia, though.
