Rebooted Scream series moves to VH1 in season 3 teaser trailer
It’s been three years since audiences were last treated to some form of the horror franchise Scream with the conclusion of MTV’s second season of the series adaptation of the hit films and after years of development on a reboot, the first trailer is here giving viewers a hint of the plot, a glimpse at the new cast including Mary J. Blige (Mudbound) and the announcement the series is moving to VH1, which can be viewed in the player below!
Blige is set to play Sherry Elliott, the mother of lead character Delon Elliot (RJ Cyler). The third season of Scream is set in Atlanta and centers on Delon, a star running back for his high school football team whose tragic past comes back to haunt him, threatening both his plans for the future and the lives of his friends.
Blige and Cyler are joined by castmates Keke Palmer (Scream Queens), Tyler Posey (Truth or Dare), Tyga, Gloria Whigham (The Punisher), Jessica Sula (Split), C.J. Wallace (Kicks) and Giullian Yao Gioiello (Iron Fist). The new season will also feature the return of the original Ghost Face mask for the first time in the series and will feature the return of Roger Jackson to voice the killer from the films.
Season three — which was originally supposed to premiere in March 2018 — has been completely reworked with a new cast, showrunner, and executive producing team. Brett Matthews (The Vampire Diaries) will serve as showrunner and executive producer alongside Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere, and Yaneley Arty of Flavor Unit Entertainment who will also executive produce. Wes Craven (Scream movies director), Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena, and Cathy Konrad round out the executive producing team on top of Maggie Malina and Dana Gotlieb-Carter executive producing for MTV.
Scream: Resurrection‘s six-episode season will debut on VH1 with a three-night run of two-hour episodes beginning on Monday, July 8 at 9 p.m. EST and ending on Wednesday, July 10.
