Not since Scream 4 in 2011 have we seen this mask.
We were surprised to learn just yesterday that MTV is bringing back the iconic Ghostface mask for the forthcoming third season of “Scream,“ which will completely reboot the series with new characters as well as an all-new storyline.
Today brings us our first look at the original mask on set, courtesy of Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes). Widmyer previously directed an episode in Season 2, and his Instagram post (below) confirms that he’ll be directing at least one episode in Season 3.
“Hello, old friend,” he captioned the photo.

“Season three revolves around Deion Elliot, a local star running back whose tragic past comes back to haunt him at the worst time, threatening his hard-earned plans for his future — and the lives of his unlikely group of friends.”
The new cast includes Keke Palmer (Scream Queens), RJ Cyler (I’m Dying Up Here), Giorgia Whigham (13 Reasons Why), Jessica Sula (Recovery Road), rapper Tyga(aka Michael Ray Stevenson), C.J. Wallace and Giullian Yao Gioiello (Julie’s Greenroom).
Brett Matthews (The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural) serves as the franchise’s third showrunner and executive produces alongside new arrivals including Queen Latifah, Shakim Conpere and Yaneley Arty for Flavor Unit Entertainment. They join original exec producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein for Dimension TV, the late Wes Craven, Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena and Cathy Konrad.
“Scream’s” six-episode third season will air as a three-night event in March on MTV. A specific premiere date has not yet been announced.
