One of the bummers about MTV’s “Scream” is that the iconic Ghostface mask from the Wes Craven film franchise was replaced with a new one that made the series feel, well, like it didn’t belong to the same franchise. But have no fear, because Ghostface is back proper in the forthcoming Season 3!
MTV announced today that the famous Fun World mask will make its small screen debut in “Scream” Season 3, which will feature new characters and a whole new story.
Production is currently underway in Atlanta.
“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.
