‘Cruel Intentions’ continuation with Sarah Michelle Gellar could still happen — in summer

NBCEarlier today, we wrote about how NBC seemed to finalize part of their fall schedule by ordering “The Blacklist: Redemption,” their spin-off to the other show on the network. They already have “Chicago Justice,” a revival of “Taken,” the long-awaited “Emerald City,” and many more coming up. They seem to be as a whole very high on some of their one-hour shows that they have decided to pick up.

It’s with that in mind that we’re not altogether surprised that the long-awaited / discussed revival of “Cruel Intentions” is not fully seeing the light of day just yet. With that being said, there is still a future for the show, which features Sarah Michelle Gellar in the same role she famously played years ago.

Per Deadline, there’s a chance that NBC will tweak the show, and eventually order it to come on at some point in the summer of 2017. Like with “Mistresses,” this is the sort of show that could appeal well to a summer crowd if they make the decision to air it there.

This news comes following the network making a series of other big decisions in regards to the fall schedule, canceling shows like “The Mysteries of Laura,” “Heartbeat,” “Game of Silence,” and others as they streamline and get rid of under-performing shows. The only program currently on the bubble for them is comedy “The Carmichael Show,” which has rave reviews but has not generated particularly strong ratings. They may need to make a decision there by the time the upfronts happen later this week.
