We told you earlier this year that MTV was planning on completely rebooting the “Scream” television series, and today brings some interesting new details about the show’s future.
THR confirms today that none of the cast members from the previous two seasons will be coming back for the six-episode third season of “Scream,” which just nabbed Brett Matthews (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Supernatural”) as its new showrunner. Additionally, Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere and Yaneley Arty have come aboard as executive producers via Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment banner.
The new season will feature a new cast, storyline and location, and THR notes that it will be “less white” and “more inclusive” than what we’ve seen from the series so far. They write, “the series looks to put a new spin on a proved concept that has not been embraced on the small screen.”
Harvey and Bob Weinstein remain on board as executive producers via Dimension TV, as will Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena and Cathy Conrad. Matthew Singer and Keith Levine produce.
