Buffy actress Sarah Michelle Gellar has announced she is to return to our screens in a new TV version of hit 90s film, Cruel Intentions.

Reprising the role of Kathryn Merteuil, her bitchy “queen of mean” character that would do anything to succeed.

In the film, Kathryn gave us one of hottest lesbian kisses of the late nineties and helped to turn it into a cult classic.

Sarah broke the news via a post on her Instagram where she said: “This picture was taken on the eve of production on the original Cruel Intentions. It’s me, Roger Kumble (director) and Neal Moritz (exec producer) and the other is a picture of us now on the eve of production on the new Cruel Intentions.”

She continued by adding one of the most iconic quotes from her character, “That’s right everybody loves me, and I intend to keep it that way.”

Social media was abuzz at the news, with several commentators taking to Twitter with the news.

Rumours of Sarah coming back to the role started last year when she reunited with other original cast members Reese Witherspoon and Selma Blair.

Several spinoff films have been made since the original, but the show plans to pick up about 15 years after the first.

Producers have said the initial episodes will see Kathryn trying to take control of the family business, Valmont International, and fight to win the affections of the son of her late brother, Bash Casey.

The series will be the star’s first return to a regular series since she played Robin Williams’ daughter in The Crazy Ones.
