The upcoming 6-episode third season of MTV’s series Scream will be hitting the reset button. I hear that the network and producing company, Dimension TV, are looking to reboot the show, based on the hit teen movie franchise, with a new storyline and new cast.
The plan is tentative as the project is still searching for a new showrunner who would shape the concept for Season 3, but I hear MTV, which just went through a major regime overhaul, remains committed to the series.
I hear the cast of the series had been quietly given permission to take other jobs, and star Willa Fitzgerald just booked a series regular role on the Fox pilot Behind Enemy Lines in first position.

With uncertainty surrounding the creative direction of the series, and given its already reduced order, could Scream Season 3 be scrapped altogether, or will it move forward into new territory? Will Scream Season 3 be the last in the series? Will there be Scream Season 4? Stay tuned…
