MTV and Dimesion have set a date for the second season of their Scream series, as well as announcing casting details, with character breakdowns for the new faces.
The season premiere will air on MTV in the States on May 31st. Showrunners Michael Gans and Richard Register also serve as executive producers along with Dimension’s Harvey and Bob Weinstein.
Returning cast members Willa Fitzgerald (Emma), John Karna (Noah), Tom Maden (Jake), Tracy Middendorf (Maggie), Amadeus Serafini (Kieran), Bex Taylor-Klaus (Audrey), and Carlson Young (Brooke) are joined by a host of newbies, whose characters are detailed below.
* Kiana Ledé (ZOE) – a fellow high school student, Zoe is a driven overachiever who harbors a secret.
* Santiago Segura (GUSTAVO ACOSTA) – A high school student, Gustavo is dark and brooding. An outsider, observing from the sidelines, he’s a skilled artist who’s deeply into horror, serial killers and comic books.
* Anthony Ruivivar (SHERIFF MICHAEL ACOSTA) – An outspoken, competent and experienced cop, Sherrif Acosta returns to Lakewood, where he grew up. He is a devoted, if sometimes strict, family man who’s very protective of his son, Gustavo.
* Austin Highsmith (KAREN LANG) – A young, idealistic high school psychology teacher who becomes a confidant and mentor to her students.
* Sean Grandillo (ELI) – Eli is Kieran’s (Amadeus Serafini) cousin. He presents as squeaky clean image, but may have ulterior motives.
* Karina Logue (TINA HUDSON) – Tina’s proper and polite, but with a grifter’s sense of self-reliance.
With production currently underway in New Orleans, LA, MTV and Dimension TV’s second season of Scream picks up with Emma’s return to Lakewood after several months at a retreat, where she tried to recover from the horrors of last season. Everyone is walking on eggshells around her, questioning whether she has truly gotten over the Killer’s crimes. Meanwhile, Audrey is hiding her connection to the Killer, but is getting harassed by someone who knows the truth. Brooke and Jake are also keeping secrets—they are hiding a budding romance from Mayor Maddox. And, Noah is getting closer and closer to the truth about the season one murders. Lakewood’s murderous past, both recent and distant, are once again brought to focus – with this Killer’s psychotic mind-game intent on bringing Lakewood’s heroes down in a storm of betrayal and bloodshed.
