It'll be a sequel to the '90s film.
Not content with only mining '80s movie properties, like Escape From New York and Big Trouble In Little China, boom Studios announced a comic sequel to the '90s movie Clueless. The series will be written by Amber Benson (Tara from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Sarah Kuhn (Heroine Complex) and drawn by Siobhan Keenan (Adventure Time). The press release describes Clueless the comic as follows:
The comic continues the journey of Cher, Dionne, and Tai as they surf the metaphorical crimson wave of senior year at Bronson Alcott High School. They struggle to figure out their plans after high school, and discover what they want to do with the rest of their lives.
The writers are doing their research for the book, as well.
"We have an amazing editor in Shannon [Watters], who sent us this U.C.L.A. slang book that has all of this amazing '90s slang in it. I use that like a bible, and I can recite it verbatim now. I think Sarah and I had some sort of struggle with this, trying to make it sound real and not like a cartoonish version of the '90s."
The film was loosely based on Jane Austen's Emma. The series doesn't have a release date set yet.
