The Cruel Intentions reboot just got a little crueler. Sarah Michelle Gellar has signed on to reprise her role as Kathryn Merteuil in NBC's reboot of the '90s film, the self-described "Marcia f--king Brady of the Upper East Side" who has a penchant for side-eye and drug-laced rosaries.

Last time we saw Kathryn she was being publicly shamed at Sebastian's funeral (retro spoiler alert: Sebastian died), and she'll presumably spend the revival plotting, scheming, and trying to destroy Bash Casey—AKA the surprise son of Ryan Phillippe's Sebastian and Reese Witherspoon's Annette. 

Also, when we say "trying to destroy" we obviously mean "trying to have sex with." Lest you forget, dating relatives is the opposite of a deal breaker for Kathryn Merteuil.
