Ever since MTV aired a Halloween special to conclude its second season of Scream: The TV series, fans have been wondering when a third season will be airing.
After two seasons of underwhelming ratings, MTV decided to completely reboot the show for the third season, which was supposed to air in March 2018. Now the show’s newest star Keke Palmer has given fans a hint that the show’s return is right around the corner.
In an interview with Forbes, Palmer revealed the holdup was due to the scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein, since the “Scream” franchise is a property of Weinstein Company/Dimension Films. The controversial producer’s name has reportedly been left off the upcoming third season.
Palmer also went on to reveal in the interview that the new season is set to premiere “soon”, hinting as soon as this coming spring.
Season three will consist of six episodes and revolve around Deion Elliot, a local running back whose troubled past comes back to haunt him, according to the network.
Along with Palmer, the new cast includes RJ Cyler, Giorgia Whigham, Jessica Sula, rapper Tyga, C.J. Wallace and Giullian Yao Gioiello. The show will move filming from New Orleans to Atlanta.
Scream last aired on MTV back in October 2016.
