Summary and plot

Scream is a new horror mystery TV series that’s an adaptation of the uber popular film franchise of the same name. Produced by Dimension TV and MTV Production Development, the show debuted on June 30, 2015 on MTV in the United States, with season 2 premiering on May 30, 2016.

A group of teenagers in a small town of Lakewood find themselves in hot waters after a cyberbullying video goes viral and instigates a murder that stirs up memories of a crime spree from a distant past. With two old friends struggling to reconnect, the storyline of Scream the TV series takes viewers on a nail-biting adventure where everyone has secrets and everyone tells lies. The series was nominated for three Teen Choice Awards in 2015 but failed to be awarded.

Current season, cast expansion and renewal prospects

Six new characters are added to the ensemble cast of the thriller series – the two regulars are Zoe, an overachiever with a skeleton in her closet (Kiana Lede) and Gustavo Acosta, an outsider “deeply into horror, serial killers and comic books” (Santiago Segura). The four recurring characters to join the crew are Sheriff Acosta (Anthony Ruivivar), Gustavo`s father, friendly psychology teacher Karen Lang (Austin Highsmith), Eli (Sean Grandillo), Kieran`s cousin who might be not as perfect as he seems and the young and independent Tina Hudson (Karina Logue).

With more than 21 million viewers tuning into the debut season 1 of Scream earlier this summer, MTV jumped on the opportunity to feed the beast by picking up the series for a second season after the first five episodes. The ten episode season also generated another 7.9 million streams across different platforms. However, critics and fans have written mixed, landing Scream in the 48th percentile of freshness on Rotten Tomatoes and just 57 out of 100 on Metacritic. The show’s ability to maintain suspense is what ultimately prompted MTV to renew the series for a second season, and if it manages to compel the viewers in the current chapter, it may very well see a third installment. The viewership, however, is down this season, averaging just over 400,000 viewers for the first three episodes. We will monitor the ratings and keep you informed as to the series` fate.
