MTV Planning to Reboot Scream: The Series For Season Three
MTV’s plans for a third season of Scream involve a complete restart. Deadline reports that the network is in the early stages of overhauling the horror series, with current plans calling for an entirely new cast and storyline.
According to the site, the new story arc will likely not make references to the characters or plot of the first two seasons with the cast granted permission to find other work. Willa Fitzgerald, who starred as Emma, has already booked a series regular role on Fox’s Behind Enemy Lines pilot. A new showrunner will be sought for the new season, which was ordered back in October for six episodes.
The site adds that MTV is committed to the series and is looking to freshen things up. The second season saw a heavy drop in the ratings after a decent first season number.
