The Heathers reboot has been picked up by Australian streaming service Stan, just months after it was put on ice indefinitely.
The black comedy, based off the 1988 film of the same name, was scrapped earlier this year in the wake of high-profile school shootings across the United States.
The show was originally slated for a March release in the US, however in late February its premiere was delayed due to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Florida.
American distributor Paramount subsequently pushed the release date back to the middle of this year.
"We stand firmly behind the show," the company said at the time. "[But] in light of the recent tragic events in Florida and out of respect for the victims, their families and loved ones, we feel the right thing to do is delay the premiere until later this year."
However, in May the US was rocked by another school shooting – this time at Santa Fe High School in Texas. This time, the network decided to pull the plug altogether.
Paramount's president, Keith Cox, told The Hollywood Reporter the series was too controversial to go to air in the current political climate.
"This is a high school show," he said. "We're blowing up the school, there are guns in the school, it's a satire and there are moments of teachers having guns. It's hitting so many hot topics... the combination of a high school show with these very dark moments didn't feel right."
On Wednesday, Stan announced it had gained exclusive rights to the series. The show centres around a teenage girl called Veronica who, along with her new boyfriend JD, plots against a trio of high-school bullies all called Heather.
A second season of the show has already been canvassed, with one possibility seeing the story jump back in time to the 1700s. The original film has, in the past, also recieved the musical treatment.
All 10 episodes of the Heathers TV reboot will premiere on Stan on Friday, September 28.
Stan is a joint venture between the Nine Network and Fairfax Media, the publisher of this website.
