The classic Ghostface mask will be back in this year’s new season of the TV series “Scream,“ which will hit the reboot button rather than continue the storyline from the first two seasons. But what the hell happened to the new season? It was originally supposed to premiere *this* month, but completely vanished a handful of months back.
As it turns out, and as we expected, the Harvey Weinstein scandal was the cause of the delay, as “Scream” is a Weinstein Company/Dimension Films property. Star KeKe Palmer just updated on the status of the project in a chat with Forbes.
The site explains, “Palmer is also set to star in Scream, which was at one time executive produced by the beleaguered Weinsteins. It’s an affiliation that caused a “little holdup” and at the time of the interview she didn’t know exactly when it would release. Weinstein’s credit was reportedly removed from the upcoming season.”
They add, “Palmer affirmed that the showrunner said everything “looked great” and the show would release soon, most likely this spring.”
The six episode third season 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.
“Teen Wolf” star Tyler Posey will play the series regular role of Shane, a high school dropout. The character is described as a drug dealer and party promoter who is always hustling in order to make money. But beneath that exterior, there’s more to Shane than anyone realizes.
The new cast also includes 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).
