We earlier reported that the third season of MTV’s Scream would reboot the series and now we have some news regarding the show’s new direction. Brett Matthews, who is mostly known for his work on The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural, is now the new showrunner and the show has been taken under Queen Latifah’s Flavour Unit Entertainment banner. She will also act as an executive producer.
The most interesting piece of information comes with THR’s description of the show focusing on a “less white story” with the franchise taking its new cast to a new location. Details are yet to emerge, but as we mentioned previously, we applaud the decision to reboot the series because season 2 finished fairly neatly and who doesn’t love a bit of change?
Scream season 3 will feature 6 episodes and if it follows in the footsteps of the last two seasons we should have the new season this summer. With very little information about the show emerging, anything could happen and that’s exciting!
