I scream. You scream. We all scream for more Scream. THR reports the third season of the Scream TV show on MTV will be a series reboot, with a new cast and a “less white story.” Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere, and Yaneley Arty are joining the Scream executive producer team.
Brett Matthews, who got his start as Joss Whedon’s assistant during the latter seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel will serve as showrunner on Scream, season three. His most recent TV series credit is as co-executive producer on The Vampire Diaries, which recently ended its eight season run on The CW.
Here’s more from The Hollywood Reporter:
Jill Blotevogal and Jaime Paglia steered the series in season one, with Blotevogel reworking the script from Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin. Michael Gans and Richard Register served as showrunners on season two. It is unclear whether the series will morph into an anthology, after speculation at the start of seasons one and two.
The series will feature an entirely new cast — which insiders say will be more inclusive as the series looks to put a new spin on a proved concept that has not been embraced on the small screen. Season two of Scream averaged only 377,000 total viewers — with seven days of DVR. A premiere date for Scream and its new cast will be announced at a later date. None of the original stars — including John Karna, Carlson Young, Bex Taylor-Klaus and Amadeus Serafini — are returning. Meanwhile, former Scream leading lady Willa Fitzgerald has already moved on with a key role in FOX‘s Behind Enemy Lines pilot.
