Scream (also known as Scream: The TV Series) is an American anthology slasher television series developed by Jill Blotevogel, Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie for MTV and Brett Matthews for VH1. It is based on the slasher film series of the same name created by Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven. The series is produced by Dimension Television and MTV Production Development, and was formerly filmed in Louisiana, in locations such as Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Blotevogel and Jaime Paglia originally served as showrunners during the first season before being replaced by Michael Gans and Richard Register in the second season, because of creative differences.

The first two seasons were situated in the fictional town of Lakewood, where a string of murders took place. At the center of those murders was Emma Duval (played by Willa Fitzgerald), a teenage girl who is somehow tied to the town's dark past. The series premiered on June 30, 2015, on MTV and concluded its first season on September 1, 2015. The series was officially picked up for a second season in July 2015. After its second season concluded, a two-hour Halloween special aired in October 2016.[3]

In October 2016, MTV renewed the series for a third season.[4][5][6] In April 2017, MTV announced that they were rebooting the series with the third season, with a new cast and setting. As part of the reboot process, it was revealed that Brett Matthews would be serving as the main showrunner. In addition, Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere and Yaneley Arty would be added as executive producers for the series under Flavor Unit Entertainment.[7][8] RJ Cyler, C. J. Wallace, Tyga, Keke Palmer, Jessica Sula, Giorgia Whigham, Giullian Yao Gioiello and Tyler Posey starred in the rebooted third season. In June 2019, it was announced that the series would be moving to VH1 ahead of the premiere of the third season.[9] The third and final season, titled Scream: Resurrection, premiered on July 8, 2019.[10]

Premise[edit]

Scream is a serialized anthology series that follows a group of teenagers being stalked and targeted by a masked serial killer.

The first two seasons, set in the fictional town of Lakewood, follow the story of Emma Duval, a teenage girl, who is linked to the horrific events of the town's past. As the killer's main obsession starts to take a hold after a brutal murder in the present, Emma finds herself in the center of imminent peril. With both her family and friends in danger, she sets out to uncover the town's dark mysteries and unmask the identity of the Lakewood Slasher.

The third season follows the story of Deion Elliot, a local football star in Atlanta, who is tormented by the events of his tragic past. As Ghostface uses his darkest secrets against him and continues with a killing spree, Deion not only stands to lose his future, but also, the lives of his friends and family members, who might end up being potential victims of the notorious and infamous killer.[11]

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

In June 2012, it was reported that MTV was in the early stages of developing a weekly television series based on the Scream film franchise.[12] In April 2013, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that MTV had greenlit the pilot episode, with Wes Craven in talks to direct.[13][14] In July 2013, it was reported that Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin had officially boarded the project to write the pilot script and in April 2014, it was reported by TVLine that the series would be penned by Jill Blotevogel.[13][15] In August 2014, the series announced its cast as well as the director of the pilot episode, Jamie Travis.[13] The series was originally planned to debut in mid-2014,[16] however, this was changed to summer 2015.[17]

An official promotional picture of the series' re-imagined mask was revealed in early June 2015. Initially, Craven expressed his approval of the redesign and hinted at its origins and possible plot significance.[18] However, Craven was later critical about the network's decision to abandon the Ghostface mask in the television series.[19][20] Later, it was reported that there were preliminary discussions about incorporating the mask in the first two seasons.[19] However, the initial plans were scrapped in favor of a new mask, due to creative reasons.[21][19] Sometime after the announcement of the reboot, MTV made a deal with Fun World, in order to acquire the licensing rights to the Ghostface mask for the series.[22]

On April 12, 2015, the first trailer for the series was aired during the 2015 MTV Movie Awards presented by Bella Thorne, also revealing the series' premiere date on June 30.[23]

The series was officially picked up for a second season on July 29, 2015.[24] On November 9, 2015, it was announced that Jill Blotevogel and Jaime Paglia would be stepping down as showrunners due to creative differences, although Blotevogel would remain a consultant on the series. Michael Gans and Richard Register replaced them for the second season.[25] On May 2, 2016, the official trailer for the second season was released.[26] The second-season premiere date was changed to May 30, 2016.[27] On October 14, 2016, MTV renewed the series for a six-episode third season, and announced that the showrunners would be replaced again.[4]

On April 26, 2017, MTV announced that Queen Latifah would be an executive producer for the third season of Scream. The series will undergo a reboot with a new cast and Brett Matthews serving as showrunner.[8] In addition, it was announced that Matthews, Shakim Compere and Yaneley Arty would also be credited as executive producers for the series under Flavor Unit Entertainment.[7][8] On July 19, 2017, The Hollywood Reporter announced that the series would transition into an anthology series in the third season. This information was corroborated by MTV president Chris McCarthy.[28]

On September 18, 2017, it was announced that the Ghostface mask from the film series would be making an appearance in the third season.[29] On October 10, 2017, Keke Palmer confirmed in an interview that Roger L. Jackson, who voiced Ghostface in the film series, would return for the third season, replacing Mike Vaughn, who served as the voice for two characters, the Lakewood Slasher in the first two seasons and the Shallow Grove Slasher in the Halloween special episodes of the second season.[30]

On March 28, 2018, it was confirmed that Harvey Weinstein would not be credited as an executive producer in the third season. In addition, the series would not include The Weinstein Company or its logo in its credits from the third season onward, even though the company was formerly involved in the distribution of the series.[31][32]

From the third season onward, the series will no longer air on MTV.[1] On June 24, 2019, it was confirmed that the third season is scheduled to premiere over three nights on VH1, starting from July 8, 2019.[10][9][33][34][35] On July 1, 2019, the official trailer for Scream: Resurrection was released.[36]

Casting[edit]

On August 5, 2014, both the main cast and recurring cast were announced.[37] However, Amy Forsyth dropped out and was replaced by Bex Taylor-Klaus as Audrey Jensen.[38] On February 22, 2015, it was revealed that Joel Gretsch, who was playing Clark Hudson, had left the series as producers thought his character should go down a different path; he was replaced by Jason Wiles. On December 11, 2014, it was revealed that Bella Thorne would be a part of the cast, she played the character Nina Patterson. Thorne confirmed this during an interview saying, "Yes it's true. I will re-enact the famous scene of Drew Barrymore in the original series."[39] On April 22, 2015, True Blood actress Amelia Rose Blaire was confirmed to be joining the series as Piper Shaw which, by the character description, is a role similar to Gale Weathers from the Scream films.[40]

On June 18, 2015, Bella Thorne confirmed she was offered the lead role in the series but turned it down in favor of a smaller role.[41] She went on to explain, "I had the option to do the lead, but I thought I should choose this role because I felt it was more iconic, I thought it was just a little bit more and also I've never been killed on screen before. I've never been killed ever on anything that I've done. I've always been the character that lives at the end so it was my first time dying on screen which is pretty cool. I wouldn't say that my character isn't necessarily in any more of the episodes but you'll see!"[41] In 2016, Lele Pons appeared in a similar cameo capacity in the beginning of the second season. The scene paid homage to Scream 2, with Pons' character Leah, an actress from the in-show film Murderville, being thrown off a house by a killer, Becca (Chelsea Bruland).[42]

It was announced on July 17, 2017, that Tyga and C. J. Wallace would star in the rebooted third season.[43] On September 13, 2017, it was announced that RJ Cyler, Jessica Sula, Keke Palmer, Giullian Yao Gioiello, and Giorgia Whigham had joined the main cast of the third season in addition to the previously announced cast members.[44][45] On September 25, 2017, it was announced that Tyler Posey had been cast as a series regular in the role of Shane.[46] Posey previously appeared in the series' promo titled "Killer Party", playing a fictionalized version of himself.[47] On August 16, 2018, it was announced that Mary J. Blige had been cast in the role of Deion's mother, Sherry Elliot.[48] On October 12, 2018, it was announced that Tony Todd would appear as Luther Thompson / Hook Man.[49] On June 24, 2019, it was confirmed that Paris Jackson would make an appearance as the character Becky in the third season's first episode "The Deadfast Club".[50][51] Similar to Thorne and Pons, Paris Jackson will make a cameo in the opening scene of the third season's first episode, paying homage to the opening of the original film.[52]

Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

Season Rotten Tomatoes Metacritic
1 52% (42 reviews)[69] 57 (21 reviews)[70]
2 92% (12 reviews)[71]
3 40% (5 reviews)[72]

The first season of Scream received an overall mixed response. On review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, the first season received a rating of 52%, based on 42 reviews, with a 5.45/10 average rating. The site's critical consensus reads: "Lacking truly compelling characters or scenarios, Scream is formed to trade too heavily on nostalgia for its big-screen predecessors in the franchise."[69] On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating, the first season has a score of 57 out of 100, based on reviews from 21 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[70]

In a positive review, David Hinckley from New York Daily News awarded the pilot four out of five stars and stated, "Happily, Scream maintains a sense of humor, reinforced with snappy, self-aware pop culture dialogue."[73] Similarly, Brian Lowry of Variety commended the series' ability to maintain suspense "without much actually happening during the rest of the episode," noting its use of music, but expressing skepticism if the series could maintain its originality.[74] Aedan Juvet of PopWrapped gave a positive assessment of the series and called it, "a prime example of a game-changing horror series".[75] Conversely, David Wiegand of the San Francisco Chronicle panned the series and gave it one out of four stars, criticizing the acting performances as "bland, robotic, and uninteresting" as well as its apparent lack of racial diversity.[76] In a mixed review, Mark Perigard of the Boston Herald gave the series a C+, saying, "There are a few scares here, but while the Scream films kept audiences jumping, Scream: The TV Series risks putting viewers to sleep."[77]

The second season received more positive reviews with a rating of 92% on Rotten Tomatoes based on reviews from 12 critics. The site's critical consensus reads: "Undeniably gripping and wickedly sharp, Scream returns with a killer sophomore season that manages to go further into its murderous ethos."[71]
