New 'Scream' Series Will Head to MTV in October 2015

I'll be right back!

It looks like a reboot of the popular horror franchise, "Scream," will be finally heading to MTV next October. After much talk about the possibility of a series based on the Kevin Williamson/Wes Craven films, the official pilot order came last April. Now an announcement has been made by MTV that its first ten-episode season will be premiering in October 2015.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will star Willa Fitzgerald as Emma Duvall, Bex Taylor Klaus as Audrey, John Karna as Noah Foster, Connor Weil as Will, Amadeus Serafini as Kieran Wilcox, Carlson Young as Brooke Maddox, Tracey Middendorf as Maggie and Joel Gretsch as Sheriff Clark Hudson. "Scream" director, Wes Craven will serve as executive producer, along with Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena, Cathy Konrad and show runner Jill Blotevogel. There's no word on the exact plot yet but we're sure there will be some chasing, knives, blood and overall mayhem.

You can click here for the cryptic tweet MTV put out yesterday before the announcement or call (310) 461-4299 for a message from Ghostface himself. So what do you guys think about the resurrection of Ghostface or was four films enough? Might he do well on the small screen? We'll keep you posted on any new developments.
