Last month, we reported the third season of the Scream TV show on MTV would be a reboot, with a new, more diverse cast, led by showrunner Brett Matthews, with Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere, and Yaneley Arty are joining the Scream executive producer team.
Now, MTV has released more information about Scream, season three, including biographies for the new characters. The first two seasons of the horror drama starred Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, John Karna, Amadeus Serafini, and Carlson Young.
Back in October of 2016, MTV renewed Scream for a shorted third season of six episodes. The first two installments had 10 and 13 episodes, respectively.

Heres more on Scream, season three, from TV Line:
TVLine has exclusively learned of five new characters being cast in Season 3:
* First up is Dion, a Michael B. Jordan-esque football player on track to score a college scholarship — that is, until a masked killer uses Dion’s darkest secrets against him, turning his life upside down and making him question his own sanity.
* Liv is Dion’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.
* And then there’s Dion’s step-brother Jamal. Despite hanging out with a rough crowd, he’s got a big heart and an undying loyalty to Dion.
It should be noted that MTV is stressing diverse casting for Scream‘s third season; Dion and Jamal are both black, while actresses of diverse backgrounds will be considered for the roles of Liv and Kym.
