Sarah Michelle Gellar is reprising her Cruel Intentions character for the brand new TV show pilot.

We almost can't breathe we're so excited!!

Cruel Intentions has to be one of our FAVOURITE ever teen movies. Released in 1999, it starred SMG as the devious, scheming rich girl Kathryn, who makes a bet with her gorgeous stepbrother Sebastian (Ryan Phillippe) that he can't seduce the innocent newbie at their school, Annette (Reese Witherspoon).

The TV pilot will focus on teenager Bash Casey, who is the son of Sebastian and Annette. Fans of the original movie will remember poor Sebastian was knocked down by a taxi and died.

Does that mean evil Kathryn will be free to carry out some more diabolical and scheming plans with her stepbrother no longer around?! And surely she'll want revenge on anybody related to Annette after the events of the movie?!

Sarah confirmed the exciting news on Instagram in an early Throwback Thursday post, containing an old and a new photo of herself and director Roger Kumble and exec producer Neal Moritz.

She wrote: "This picture was taken on the eve of production on the original #cruelintentions. Its me #rogerkumble (director) and #nealmoritz (exec producer) and the other is a picture of us now on the eve of production on the new #cruelintentions. That's right "everybody loves me, and I intend to keep it that way" #kathrynmerteuil is back!!! I am happy to say that I will be joining them (and @nbctv ) on the new #Crueltv."

Ahh! Welcome back Kathryn! We think... she's pretty scary!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the plot of the pilot takes place 15 years after the original movie. Kathryn is married to a wealthy man (obvs) and is trying to get control of Valmont International, while Bash is learning about his father's somewhat dubious bash and going down the same route himself…
