It looks like the TV gods have answered our prayers because she is IN FACT going to play Kathryn Merteuil on the small screen!

On Wednesday, SMG confirmed the news on her Instagram!

She posted :

#throwbackthursday (a bit early in Los Angeles) 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 #CrueltvA photo posted by Sarah Michelle (@sarahmgellar) on Feb 24, 2016 at 6:03pm PST

The project will pick up 15 years after the movie left off. Gellar’s character will try to control Bash, the son of Annette Hargrove (originally played by Reese Witherspoon) and the deceased Sebastian Valmont (originally played by Ryan Phillippe).

Sony Pictures TV, Original Film, and AMBI are producing.

Talk about must see TV!
