Scream series may reboot Season 3 with new cast members at MTV
Season 3 of the Scream series on MTV may be a reboot, according to Deadline. Of course, the show is a reboot of the Scream film franchise, with four films from 1996 to 2011. Dimension TV, which produces the show, is reportedly looking to reboot the story and hire an all-new cast. They would also be looking for a new showrunner to bring fresh eyes to the series. If this happens, it’s not clear whether or not reference will be made to the first two seasons of the show, the stories and characters in the reboot.
The first season had 10 episodes and the second season, 13. Season 3 of the Scream series was recently picked up for six additional episodes. The second season of the show had a rather large ratings drop. The first two seasons had different showrunners with Jill Blotevogal and Jaime Paglia on season 1 and Michael Gans and Richard Register on season 2.
As we reported yesterday, Willa Fitzgerald, who plays Emma Duvall on the series, just booked a role in the upcoming pilot Behind Enemy Lines, also based on a film. MTV and Dimension have yet to comment on the report. Fitzgerald stars alongside John Karna (Noah), Tom Maden (Jake), Tracy Middendorf (Maggie), Amadeus Serafini (Kieran), Bex Taylor-Klaus (Audrey), and Carlson Young (Brooke), as well as Kiana Lede (Republic Records Recording Artist), Santiago Segura (47 Meters Down), Anthony Ruivivar (Banshee), Austin Highsmith (Murder in the First), Sean Grandillo (“Spring Awakening” – Broadway Company) and Karina Logue (Ray Donovan). The Scream movie franchise grossed over $604 million in worldwide box-office receipts. Horror icon Wes Craven directed all four films.
