Tonight marks the second season finale of the Scream TV series on MTV. But, will it be the last episode of the entire series? Will it return for a third season? Should it be cancelled?
Season two of the Scream TV show picks up with Emma Duval (Willa Fitzgerald) returning to Lakewood. She’s spent several months at a retreat and hopes to put the horrific events of last season behind her. Good luck with that. The rest of the cast includes Amadeus Serafini, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Carlson Young, Conner Weil, John Karna, Kiana Lede, Santiago Segura, Sean Grandillo, Tom Maden, and Mike Vaughn (voice only).
The first season of Scream averaged a 0.34 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 750,000 viewers. Those weren’t great ratings and the current season’s numbers have dropped a lot lower. The nine installments have averaged 0.19 in the demo and 380,000 viewers — more than a 45% drop season-to-season.
Based on the ratings alone, it seems unlikely that MTV will order a third season but, these days, you never know.
What do you think? Should MTV renew Scream for a third season or cancel it instead?
