Having hit the air only a month ago, MTV’s Scream series has already been picked up for a second season by the network. The series has pulled in more than 21 million viewers have tuned in to the series on air and and it has pulled in 7.9 million streams across various VOD platforms.
No word just yet on where the second series will go. Presumably, it will be a new story in a new town (we’re running out of characters on the current incarnation) but you can be sure that you will know as soon as we do!
The first season of the program follows a group of high school students who are being targeted by an unknown killer. The cast will include Willa Fitzgerald (Alpha House), Amelia Rose Blaire (True Blood), Bex Taylor-Klaus (The Killing), John Karna, Connor Weil (Sharknado), Bobby Campo (The Final Destination) Carlson Young and Amadeus Serafini. The program also stars Joel Gretsch (Push) and Tracy Middendorf (New Nightmare).
Jill Blotevogel (Harper’s Island) serves as the series’ executive producer and showrunner; she also rewrote the original script by Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin. Wes Craven is an additional executive producer alongside Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena, and Cathy Konrad. Harvey and Bob Weinstein will also executive produce.
