The new version features Grace Victoria Cox as high-school student Veronica Sawyer, James Scully as her murderous boyfriend JD, and Melanie Field as Heather Chandler, Brendan Scannell as Heather Duke and Jasmine Mathews as Heather McNamara -- Veronica's wicked frenemies.
Thursday's preview of the series introduces all of these characters and offers a glimpse of Doherty pointing a gun and talking to Selma Blair, an actress famous for another "teens behaving badly" classic -- "Cruel Intentions."
It is unclear what roles the women play in the "Heathers" remake.
In real life, Doherty recently completed treatment for breast cancer.
