With the first season now available on Netflix here in the UK, MTV’s Scream: The TV Series is getting set for its second season later this year in the US. As well as dedbuting a new poster, MTV and Dimension TV have also dropped an official press release detailing the premiere date and cast for the show’s second season.
The official word on all of this is below, with several new characters set to be added to the terrors that torment Lakewood:
The first season of the series performed as the #1 original cable series in its time period. New cast includes: Kiana Lede (Republic Records Recording Artist), Santiago Segura (47 Meters Down), Anthony Ruivivar (“Banshee”), Austin Highsmith (“Murder in the First”), Sean Grandillo (“Spring Awakening” – Broadway Company) and Karina Logue (“Ray Donovan”). Michael Gans and Richard Register serve as executive producers and showrunners for the second season along with Harvey and Bob Weinstein as executive producers under the Dimension TV umbrella. Scream will return to MTV on Tuesday, May 31st at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
With production currently underway in New Orleans, LA, MTV and Dimension TV’s second season of Scream picks up with Emma’s return to Lakewood after several months at a retreat, where she tried to recover from the horrors of last season. Everyone is walking on eggshells around her, questioning whether she has truly gotten over the Killer’s crimes. Meanwhile, Audrey is hiding her connection to the Killer, but is getting harassed by someone who knows the truth. Brooke and Jake are also keeping secrets – they are hiding a budding romance from Mayor Maddox. And, Noah is getting closer and closer to the truth about the season one murders. Lakewood’s murderous past, both recent and distant, are once again brought to focus – with this Killer’s psychotic mind-game intent on bringing Lakewood’s heroes down in a storm of betrayal and bloodshed.
