A new trailer has been released for the upcoming season 2 of Scream and it wishes us a welcome return. The paranoia and mystery is certainly ramped up in this tease, because as the trailer suggests, anyone could be the killer. In keeping with Scream’s identity, the levels of self-reference are also stepped up with the characters referring to the new killer as the beginning of Act 2 of their slasher story.
Season 2 of Scream picks up with Emma’s (Willa Fitzgerald) 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 (Bex Taylor-Klaus) is hiding her connection to the Killer, but is getting harassed by someone who knows the truth. Brooke (Carlson Young) and Jake (Tom Maden) are also keeping secrets—they are hiding a budding romance from Mayor Maddox (Bryan Batt). And, Noah (John Karna) is getting closer and closer to the truth about the season 1 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.
The first season of Scream was a surprising amount of fun and it had a pretty perfect ending. If the new season can keep us guessing as much as the first, then we can’t wait to return to Lakewood when the new episodes start airing on 30th May.
