At last, season 3 of Scream will finally make it to our television screens.
First airing two seasons beginning in 2015 on MTV, the third season will have six episodes that will air over three nights.
The series was set for a retool with a new cast, location and story for the season. The cast, including Mary J. Blige, and a new creative team, including exec producer Queen Latifah was announced in late 2017, but nothing ever materialized until now.
A trailer and premiere date have been unveiled for the show as it moves to MTV’s sibling network, VH1. THR broke the news Monday. It is a decision that makes sense, as MTV has been out of the scripted game for a while now since Teen Wolf ended and Scream went on hiatus.
Titled Scream: Resurrection, the season will premiere July 8 and run for two hours for three nights beginning at 9 p.m., running through July 10.
Other stars include Keke Palmer, Tyler Posey, Tyga, Giorgia Whigham, Jessica Sula, RJ Cyler, C.J. Wallace and Giullian Yao Gioiello. The premise of the season will be set around “Deion Elliot (Cyler), 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 first look trailer also introduced Paris Jackson, who will seemingly make a cameo as Scream’s first victim.
