MTV’s Scream is a truly bizarre show. Wes Craven worked on the series right before his death, and strangely enough, it felt very little like the actual Scream movies.
The third season was set to change that, however, by bringing in an all-new storyline and reusing the original Ghostface mask. This includes undoing all of the previous characters and plots from the first two seasons. The third season was going to premiere earlier this year, but due to behind the scenes drama, it’s been delayed ever since.
While there hasn’t been a whole lot of news other than that, it was recently confirmed that horror icon Tony Todd will be appearing in Scream Season 3.

Hopefully his appearance will live up to the full potential of hiring such a great horror actor. While he’ll likely only play for a few minutes of screen time, we can hope it’ll be a worthy addition for the Scream franchise. Unfortunately, after such a subpar two seasons that had nearly nothing to do with the movies, I’m not hoping for too much.
The season will also star Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf), Mary J. Blige, 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).
In the new season…
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.
