Sarah Michelle Gellar to reprise role for 'Cruel Intentions' TV reboot

Get ready! The ultimate big-screen bad girl is coming back. But this time, she's headed to the small screen.

In a Throwback Thursday post on Instagram, Sarah Michelle Gellar revealed that she's returning to the role '90s moviegoers loved to hate — Kathryn Merteuil from "Cruel Intentions."

Yes, Kathryn, the stepsister with boundary issues, a mean streak and a taste for revenge, will be part of the upcoming made-for-TV reboot of the now-classic flick.

Gellar shared side-by-side photos of herself alongside director Roger Kumble and executive producer Neal H. Moritz just before filming the original movie and now, just before filming the NBC pilot.

She also shared an oh-so-Kathryn quote: "Everybody loves me, and I intend to keep it that way."

And that's not the only recent casting news. Taylor John Smith ("American Crime") and Samantha Logan ("The Fosters") will also be part of the production, with Smith taking on a pivotal role.

He'll play the part of Bash, the son of Annette Hargrove and the late Sebastian Valmont — and also Kathryn's new foil.

The story will take place 15 years after the events from the first film.
