Scream TV Series reboot is confirmed for a third season. While the movie franchise was a top hit in the early 2000s, the reboot TV series shown on MTV makes the audience still undecided if they like it or not. But undecided or not, a lot of viewers probably wants more since it is renewed for Season 3 and is on production according to a statement from the MTV.
Scream is very much alive with a new plotline and cast and we’ve got the latest news and updates.
After a recent power battle in its production and executive team, the series will now feature an entirely new cast, a new showrunner, and a new creative team. There was a huge decline in ratings from season one to two that might be the reason why there’s a whole new team for the third season. MTV hopes that a reboot will spark renewed interest from fans in Scream.
Brett Matthews will join the team as the main show runner for the upcoming season. He has been credited with writing works from shows like The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural. The executive producers are Queen Latifah, Shakim Conpere and Yaneley Arty under their TV and Film Team, Flavor Unit Entertainment.
The horror mixed with comedy series will revolve around Deion Elliot who is a local community star with a tragic past. While looking forward to the future, his past comes back to haunt him and new threats affects him, his family and friends.
According to THR, Teen Wolf actor Tyler Posey will join the cast. He is a series regular who will play the role of Shane who dropped out of high school. He is supposed to be a drug dealer and party promoter who hustles for money. But it seems there’s more to him than anyone sees or realizes.
Meanwhile, another THR article has reported that Tyga and C.J. Wallace have also joined the new cast as series regulars. Tyga will play Jamal, Deion’s hustler brother. Wallace will have the role of Amir, born from super strict parents who expect him to climb the ladder of taking up the family business. At the same time, they want him to stay entangled and at a distance from distracting relationships.
Also included in the cast are Keke Palmer from Scream Queens, Giorgia Whigham from 13 Reasons Why, Jessica Sula from Skins and Giullian Yao Gioiello from Julie’s Greenroom.
These are the following character lineup for Scream according to an exclusive from TV Line:
Deion, a Michael B. Jordan-esque football player on track to score a college scholarship — that is, until a masked killer uses Deion’s darkest secrets against him, turning his life upside down and making him question his own sanity.
Liv is Deion’s cheerleader girlfriend, as beautiful as she is brilliant. She’s also down to lend a helping hand where needed, though her good intentions often land her in hot water.
Kym is the rebellious one of the group, always willing to say what everyone else is thinking. She’s organized and protective, two qualities that will serve her well when a killer starts targeting her friends.
Beth is a little different from her fellow seniors, sporting a goth look and a morbid collection of interests. A “walking encyclopedia of all things horror,” she’s compared to The Craft‘s Fairuza Balk.
Jamal Deion’s step-brother, despite hanging out with a rough crowd, he’s got a big heart and an undying loyalty to Deion.
Kevin Williamson’s Scream movies premiered in 2015. Scream: The TV Series had a 14 episode second season with two special Halloween episodes and ended last October 2016.
It is confirmed that Scream will return in March 2018 with a three night binge event for its six episodes.
