Heathers Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
Heathers season 1 premiered on October 25, 2018. As far as the next season is concerned, we haven’t received any update from Paramount. The series has split audiences in the middle. While some love it, there are others who hate it because of the controversial climax. Considering the fact that the show did manage to create a lot of buzz, the makers might want to cash on it. So, it is very likely that the show will return for another season. If that happens, you can expect Heathers Season 2 to have a release date sometime in 2020.
While we wait for an update on season 2, check out the season 1 trailer below.
