TV show description:
This horror TV series is an adaptation of the slasher film series of the same name. A YouTube video goes viral and soon leads to problems for the teenagers of Lakewood. It serves as the catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to the town’s troubled past.
Emma Duval (Willa Fitzgerald) is known as the “Good Girl” and is the peacemaker of her popular group. Emma’s father walked out on her and her mother years ago and it’s been a rough road back to normalcy. Still, Emma is resilient and always tries to look for the good in people — a trait that the killer takes advantage of.
A mysterious charismatic loner, Kieran Wilcox (Amadeus Serafini) is the new guy in town. He has no interest in joining the popular group, despite the fact that he and Emma have instant chemistry.
Thoughtful, earnest and charming, Will Belmont (Connor Weil) is grade-A boyfriend material — or at least Emma certainly thinks so. Will and Emma have been dating seriously for over a year but Emma’s faith has been tested one too many times. When Will lets her down once again and Kieran comes to town, a love triangle forms.
Audrey Jensen (Bex Taylor-Klaus) is strong-minded and fearless and her brash attitude sometimes gets her into trouble. Audrey is a social outsider at their high school — a creative outcast who’s doing her best to be herself while pursuing her dream of being a filmmaker. She’s also figuring out her sexuality. This leads to a romantic tryst with another girl and a cyber-bullying incident.
Noah Foster (John Karna) is a prodigy and a boy genius who worships at the altar of all things nerd. When Noah’s not working his after-school job at the local comic shop, or hacking the servers at CERN, he’s obsessing over video games, anime, and above all else, horror movies. Noah has been fascinated with true-crime documentaries and serial killer lore ever since he was a kid, giving him insight and perspective on the events happening in Lakewood. Maybe a little too much?
Brooke Maddox (Carlson Young) is the second-in-command to Nina Patterson (Bella Thorne) and the heir apparent to her pink Prada throne. Always ready with biting commentary, Brooke appears to be a stereotypical mean-girl, but she’s fiercely loyal to her friends — for good reason. They’re effectively the only family she’s got. Her father, Quinn Maddox is Lakewood’s mayor and a classic emotional black hole, while her jet-setting mom is perennially MIA.
Lakewood is a place where everyone has secrets. Everyone tells lies. Everyone is fair game.
In the third season, subtitled Resurrection, the series’ setting moves to Atlanta with new characters. Deion Elliot is a local football star with some dark secrets in his past. Ghostface (voice of Roger Jackson) takes advantage of them and continues a killing spree that could cost Deion his family, friends, and future.
