Earlier this evening, TVLine reported that MTV had renewed their new Scream series for a second season. Executive producer Jaime Paglia had announced the renewal toward the end of the series’ Comic-Con panel late today. That article’s since been deleted.
The show’s Twitter account echoed the news in a tweet that read, “Exec producer @JaimePaglia just made an announcement at our #SDCC panel…THERE WILL BE A SEASON 2 OF #MTVSCREAM. HELL YES.” That tweet has now been deleted as well.
Based on the early ratings, it seems likely that Scream will return for a second season but, for whatever reason, somebody doesn’t want the news to be released just yet.
What do you think? Has the show actually been renewed? Did Paglia jump the gun or was he wrong?
