After the end of Season 2 and that lacklustre Halloween special, I was wondering what route a third season of Scream would take. MTV is making the right decision by rebooting the series and hiring an entirely new cast to play entirely different characters. The show is also currently searching for a new show-runner, so this third season is going to be a complete refresh.
There is no word on what story the show will follow, but it would be interesting if it went in a completely new direction. How about no teenagers and no school setting? But, how Scream-like would that be? As the viewing figures decreased between the first and second season, the show is going to have to do something special to get its audience back. Personally, I think the show is excellent and a great companion to the Scream film franchise. I can’t wait for more!
The new season will only be 6 episodes, so less than the previous 13 for season 2 and 10 for season 1. Short and sweet? We hope so.
