MTV’s “Scream” is hitting the reboot button. Here’s what that means.
Based on the hit movie franchise, the MTV series “Scream” has been wildly inconsistent when it comes to the length of its seasons. The debut season was 10 episodes, while the show expanded to 13 episodes for its second season. Continuing this trend, Season 3 of “Scream” will be just six-episodes long; and according to a report from Deadline today, it’s going to be WAY different.
The site reports that Dimension TV is looking to introduce a new storyline and new cast of characters for the upcoming third season of “Scream.” They note that regulars like Willa Fitzgerald have been given permission to take other jobs, but that MTV remains committed to the series. Ratings dipped from Season 1 to Season 2, which could explain why they want to reboot.
At this time, MTV is searching for a new showrunner.
Harvey and Bob Weinstein executive produce under the Dimension TV production umbrella. The late Wes Craven, Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena and Cathy Konrad also executive produce. Matthew Signer and Keith Levine are producers.
