Sarah Michelle Gellar Is Bringing Back Kathryn Merteuil For NBC’s “Cruel Intentions” Reboot

February 25, 2016 / Posted by:

Usually seeing the word “reboot” would make my soul reach for a bottle of Baileys, crawl into a corner, and drink until it didn’t feel feelings anymore. It’s still doing that right now. But this time it’s getting wrecked in honor of such great news. Sarah Michelle Gellar announced on Instagram last night that she would be reprising her role as slutty coke-sniffing rich bitch Kathryn Merteuil in NBC’s pilot for the reboot of Cruel Intentions.

SMG didn’t go into detail about her character, besides saying that production starts today. But according to Entertainment Weekly, grown-up Kathryn is back to take control of Valmont International and deal with Ryan Phillippe’s character’s secret love child, Bash Casey (played Taylor John Smith from this season of American Crime). And yes, Bash’s mommy is Annette Hargrove.

Obviously if the creators of the Cruel Intentions reboot want it to be a success, they’d make Kathryn the star. I need to know everything that happened to Kathryn after the cops arrested her for storing coke in her cross back in 1999. Does she still wear those gorgeously trampy corset tops? Is she still fucking everything that moves? At least tell me if she tried to audition for the Real Housewives of New York (she totally did). I’m glad NBC had enough forethought to realize that it would be a huge mistake to make Cruel Intentions without Kathryn. I just really hope they don’t spend too much time on Bash’s backstory. I mean, everybody knows what happened to Annette Hargrove – she moved to Hollywood and changed her name to “Reese Witherspoon.”
