Clutch your crucifix necklaces filled with cocaine because Sarah Michelle Gellar is reprising her Cruel Intentions role of Kathryn Merteuil. The actress confirmed the news on Instagram that she will be playing her iconic character from the 1999 film in the pilot for NBC.

"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 [producers Roger Kumble and Neal Moritz](and @nbctv ) on the new #Crueltv," Gellar wrote.

The NBC pilot will pick up 15 years after the original film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series will center on Merteuil as she "vies for control of Valmont International as well as the soul of Bash Casey, son of her brother, the late Sebastian Valmont, and Annette Hargrove." Bash, who is being played by Taylor John Smith, will discover his father's legacy in the infamous Valmont journal, which leads him to "a world of sex, power and corruption he never imagined."

So it seems that while Kathryn Merteuil is all grown up, her manipulative, villainous ways haven't changed. If Sarah Michelle Gellar is on board it's also more likely to make fans of the original movie tune in.
